The long-running competitive feud between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder might not be over just yet after his manager suggested a fourth fight may be on the cards in the future.

Africa Fury, who started gaining prominence a couple years ago by posting viral videos that depict him training alongside other fistic hopefuls at a less-than-ideal outdoor gym on an unpaved city street in Lagos, will face Nigerian countryman Gbenga Samson in a heavyweight four-rounder at the Beats and Bites Palace Hotel.
