Tyson Fury can forget about ever stepping back in the ring with Wladimir Klitschko, according to the Ukranian's manager Bernd Boente.

The manager of Wladimir Klitschko has revealed that the Ukrainian has no intention of a rematch with Tyson Fury should he overcome Anthony Joshua later this month.

Klitschko takes on Joshua at Wembley Stadium on April 29 with two world titles on the line, exactly 17 months to the day since suffering defeat to Fury.

After being denied the chance to face the Englishman for a second time last year, with the bout being postponed on two separate occasions, manager Bernd Boente insists that Fury can forget about stepping back in the ring with Klitschko further down the line.

"None of us ever wants to deal with this group of people again, especially including myself," Boente told Sky Sports News. "It was a lost year and don't forget Wladimir is not 18 years old and starting as a pro. Nobody wants that anymore.

"Wladimir would have loved - he showed that in different press conferences - to have that rematch because he knows he had a complete off night. He literally threw two, three punches per round and had he thrown as many punches as in the last round, he probably would have won the fight.

"But he didn't and he definitely wanted to show to the public and especially to himself that he can beat this guy, and be a different Wladimir Klitschko in the rematch.

"That's why he was totally keen to have that rematch, but the guy wasn't available and now we have another opponent, a way better opponent, a more interesting fight. It's at Wembley Stadium, it's a huge audience, this is the fight of the year, it cannot be better."

Defeat to Fury in November 2015 was Klitschko's first in over 10 years.
