Tyson Fury insists Deontay Wilder will be ‘more dangerous’ in their trilogy fight.
The Gypsy King defeated the Bronze Bomber in the seventh round to win the WBC title in Las Vegas in February.

Wilder looks set to take up his option of a third fight against Fury, with a time and place still unknown due to the coronavirus pandemic.
And Fury believes Wilder will look to ‘prove his worth’ when they go head-to-head again.
He told Sky Sports: “Heavyweight boxing takes one punch. Dismantle Deontay Wilder? It only takes one punch off Deontay Wilder.
“He’s still a very dangerous opponent, still a very hungry man, who is coming in there to prove his worth, to prove he can come back and become a two-time heavyweight champion.
“He’ll be more dangerous than the last fight, for sure.

“Do you know what? It’s just a boxing match. It’s a boxing match, I don’t look at it like anything else. You win some, you lose some. You never can tell.”
The coronavirus pandemic has suspended boxing since March.
And Fury can’t wait to get back in the ring with Wilder in a match which could take place in China or Australia this year.
He added: “I’m looking forward to the challenge, whenever that may be.
“I’ll get over there, nice and early, eight to ten weeks beforehand. Put in a good, gruelling training camp.
“Hopefully I’ll be injury-free and we’ll go out there and dance beneath the stars, in front of the world after the coronavirus.
“God willing everything goes to plan, and we both get out the ring safely, and go back to our families in one piece, and the show continues to the next one, whatever that may be.
“I’d love to get out there and do what I do best, boxing, but it’s out of my hands. It’s out of everybody’s hands, apart from people who are running the world.
“Unfortunately, I’m not one of those, and I’m glad I’m not because that job is difficult. Much more difficult than taking punches in the face for money.”
