Promoter Eddie Hearn says a rematch between Tony Bellew and David Haye is "virtually dead" after the British rivals failed to agree terms.
But the Merseysider's promoter Hearn has raised serious doubts about a second fight with Haye after negotiations broke down between the two fighters.
I think at this stage, Bellew-Haye II is virtually dead
Hearn told Sky Sports: "I don't think Bellew-Haye will happen. Although there was hugs and kisses in the ring after the fight, trying to get these two to agree to anything is a complete disaster.
"Tony Bellew feels like he got the win, so he should get the benefits of that win, and David Haye feels like Bellew still isn't on his level. When you're talking about ring walks, who goes first on the poster, changing rooms, splits - all this kind of stuff, it's impossible.
"I think at this stage, Bellew-Haye II is virtually dead."
