Tyson Fury has admitted he does not expect to face Anthony Joshua in the ring this year.
The Gypsy King is preparing for his eagerly-awaited rematch with Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas on Saturday for the WBC heavyweight title.
Should Fury emerged victorious, a potential unification bout with fellow Brit Joshua would be on the table.
But Fury has rejected any suggestions Joshua would be next in line, and believes he will meet Wilder again in a trilogy fight.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Fury said: “There’s too much money in the pot for him [Wilder] not to want a rematch.
“I’ll win so I’ll be having a rematch either way.
“All I do is win, win, win, no matter what. Unless it’s a draw.”
IBF, WBA and WBO champion Joshua and his promoter Eddie Hearn believe a Fury victory would offer a greater chance of a unification fight.
But Fury doesn’t agree.
When quizzed whether he feels the same way, Fury replied: “No, I don’t unfortunately. I’ve got another fight with Wilder.
“I’ve got a trilogy with old Deontay Wilder. And then we’ll see where that goes. And then who knows? May have a fourth and fifth fight.”
Fury’s UK promoter Frank Warren has also revealed Fury and Wilder will face off for a third time.
“The loser has 30 days to call on the rematch and that has to be accepted,” Warren told BBC Radio 5 Live.
In a separate discussion with talkSPORT, Warren added: “Tyson is going to be back in the ring with Wilder on February 22.

“And they will fight again, irrespective of who wins, in the summer.
“So that, at the moment, is all tied up.”
Fury’s first bout with Wilder in 2018 ended in a controversial draw, despite many believing the Brit to have won the fight.
But the unbeaten star feels he is in the best shape possible to set the record straight.
