PA:Press Association10 Fury claims Wilder will opt for a showdown with Joshua instead of a rematch if he is to win
If the Gypsy King is to dethrone Wilder, 33, the American has a rematch clause that allows an immediate second encounter against the Brit.
However, Fury believes Wilder will not exercise it, instead predicting The Bronze Bomber will go after Joshua, 30, and his WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO world titles.
Fury told Oddschecker: “I don’t think Wilder will take the rematch. He won’t take the rematch clause.
"I’m going to give him that bad of a boxing lesson and beat him up that badly he won’t want that rematch clause.

“He’ll fight Joshua, I think. Even with his loss. He doesn’t have anywhere to go.”
Fury fights for the one belt he did not claim when he famously dethroned Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015 – the night he won the exact titles Joshua currently holds.
However, after the Klitschko win Fury battled drugs and depression that ultimately saw him relinquish his straps and balloon up to 28 stone over an 18-month period.
Two and a half years later and Fury returned to the ring, beating Sefer Seferi and Francesco Pineta in preparation for the Wilder fight, where he has now lost 10 stone from last year.
