But Fury is due to take on Wilder for a third time later this year ahead of a potential double-header against fellow world champion Joshua next year.

Tyson Fury believes Deontay Wilder is a more dangerous fighter than Anthony Joshua.

"Deontay Wilder is the second best heavyweight in the world; I believe he knocks out Anthony Joshua and everyone else behind me," he said.

Australia, New Zealand and China are in the running to host the clash in the hope crowds will be able to return to arenas.

And Fury expects a better version of the Wilder he stopped in the seventh round of their second fight.

"As I'm a realist, in heavyweight boxing, and messing with the most vicious puncher in history, I'm not overlooking anyone," he added.
