Fury hopes to complete Wilder trilogy
Tyson Fury is confident he will beat Deontay Wilder when they meet in a rematch but he wants to complete a trilogy regardless.
Fury faces Sweden's Otto Wallin next weekend and Wilder takes on Luis Ortiz for the second time in November.
If the heavyweight stars come through their respective next assignments they are expected to meet early next year in a rematch, after a controversial draw in December.
Should Fury beat Wallin and then Wilder, he will claim the American's WBC belt and there would be the potential for a huge unification bout with either Andy Ruiz Jr or Anthony Joshua but the Briton says he would rather conclude a trilogy with the 'Bronze Bomber' before bidding for any more titles.
"Now I want to keep busy and I intend to fight Wallin and beat him," he told The Mirror.
"Then I intend to fight Deontay Wilder and beat him. Then I intend to give Deontay Wilder a rematch for the trilogy fight and beat him in that one.
"Then we'll take the winner of Joshua and Ruiz.
"I'll fight Wilder in February, Wilder in June and the winner of Joshua and Ruiz in December."
