Tyson Fury sends warning to Deontay Wilder ahead trilogy fight

Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder have been urged by Anthony Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn to “hurry up” with their third showdown in order to pave the way for an all-British world heavyweight title unification fight.

Tyson Fury has vowed to give Deontay Wilder “a bit more” when they meet for a third time.

Fury demolished Wilder in their long-awaited rematch in February to reclaim world heavyweight glory.

But Wilder has activated his rematch clause to set up a trilogy bout with most anticipating a similar outcome given the manner of Fury’s win.

The fight will delay a potential unification bout with fellow Brit Anthony Joshua – but Fury insists he will never tire of beating Wilder.

And he insists he has more to offer at the second time of asking as he vowed to deliver another crushing win.

Speaking on Good Morning Britain, Fury said: “I’ll be obliged to give him a bit more.

“You never get bored of beating Deontay Wilder, obviously. It’s one of those things you take great pride out of doing.

“I really did what I said I was going to do. Not many people, in boxing especially, say something then do exactly what they said they were going to do.

“I was proud of that performance. I’m looking forward to getting this coronavirus out of the way, getting the world back on track and getting back to my job.”
