Reports this week claimed Tyson Fury had lined up a shock fourth fight with Deontay Wilder
Fury was said to have eyed a fourth clash with Wilder in case his bout with Oleksandr Usyk fell through
But Wilder’s coach Malik Scott insists there have been no talks
But Team Wilder insists that’s not the case, with coach Malik Scott telling ES News: “No, not at all. There’s no talks.
“When I say that there is no talks, I’m coming from Deontay’s perspective.
“Because that is who I am hands-on with, every other day. From his perspective, it is all just hoopla.”
Scott, however, is refusing to rule out the prospect of Fury and Wilder sharing the ring again, although he’d prefer his man to fight Usyk.
He said: “Fury-Wilder 4 is an option, but it is more realistic to say Usyk-Wilder.
“I would want that to happen before Fury-Wilder.”
Usyk’s promoter and manager Alexander Krassyuk flew into London this week for last-ditch talks to finalise the first undisputed heavyweight dust-up in nearly 25 years.
April 29 is the targeted date for the clash, which could potentially take place at Wembley.

Fury’s co-promoter Frank Warren told talkSPORT his week. “We are very, very close to getting this [Fury vs Usyk] done. Very, very close.
“His people are coming in tomorrow and I’m hoping we’re gonna get some news for everybody. We’re close to getting it done.
“Tomorrow we’re gonna meet up. Alex Krassyuk, his promoter, is coming to the Arsenal vs Man City game with me.
“I’m hoping that if I can get enough wine down him that we can do the deal.
“We’re meeting him to get an agreement on the various scenarios to make it happen.
“There’s a few more hurdles for both sides to get over. They’re not [insurmountable], not at all. Location is the main thing.
“If we go abroad, then you go there for a premium, that’s the reason you do it.
When is Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk? Date, TV channel – everything we know so far
“If not, then we get down to the reality of what it’ll be at Wembley where the numbers are what they are.
“We broke the box office record with the fight vs Dillian Whyte last April. If we get this one on, I think that will break that record.
“I think it’s well in excess of a million [UK PPV] buys, one-and-a-half million.
“It’s not like we’ve got to go and sell Usyk, he’s beaten Anthony Joshua twice, the public know who he is. It’s not a tough sell at all.
“We’ve got a pencil on it [April 29] for obvious reasons, just in case, we’ve gotta make sure we’ve got some insurance. So there’s a pencil on the date.
“In a perverse way, I would like to see it at Wembley because I’d like to see all the records broken and obviously see the fight in the UK.
“But from the boxers and their bank managers’ point of view, they would like to maximise what they can earn for an historic fight.”
