Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder’s fight contract includes clause over fourth bout

Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder have agreed on a special clause in the contract of their trilogy bout following their 2018 draw and Fury's one-sided TKO triumph in 2020.

The self-proclaimed Gypsy King took the WBC belt from Bronze Bomber in that second meeting, and had plans to put it on the line against Anthony Joshua before honouring Wilder's rematch.

With Joshua later losing to Oleksandr Usyk and booking a rematch of his own, the winner from this weekend's match up will have some time to spare before a potential unification.

However, should Wilder win, and equal their records at one triumph apiece as well as the draw, there still won't be a fourth meeting between them on the cards.

The Sun report that there is no right to rematch for the loser, meaning neither fighter will be tied down for upcoming plans should they win on the night.

Wilder's co-manager Shelly Finkel told SunSport: "At this point no. We’ll see what happens in the fight, but at this point no.

“And I would think, if my clairvoyance is correct, Fury won’t want any more part of him after this.”

Before their third bout on Saturday gets underway, Fury has been asked about his motivation to continue boxing – and he doesn't exactly have a retirement plan in place.

Talking to BBC Radio 5 Live's Boxing podcast, Fury said: "I'm not fighting to be the greatest of all time, I'm not fighting to be a legend.

"It wouldn't benefit me earning another £50m or £200m, you don't need to be rich to live my life. I'm just a normal person who is very good at boxing and a very special, chosen person."

Adding: "What motivates me? I'm getting asked this a lot. It's definitely not a few quid. It's a fact there's nothing else.

"I'm boxing because I can — I don't enjoy anything else, I don't have any hobbies. After boxing, I will be a very sad, lonely person.

"I've tried looking after animals, four-wheeled driving, got a shotgun licence, clay pigeon shooting. Nothing turns me on."
