Tyson Fury expects to get the better of Deontay Wilder once again when the two square off in a third fight later this year.

Fury handed Wilder his first professional defeat in February with a clinical seventh round stoppage to claim the WBC Heavyweight title, and in doing so avenged the controversial draw between the two in December 2018.

A third fight was scheduled to take place on July 18th but that date has been pushed back to October of this year due to the coronavirus.


"I'll be obliged to give him a bit more! You never tire of beating Deontay Wilder, it's one of those things you take great pride in doing," Fury told Good Morning Britain.

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

"So I was quite proud of the performance and I'm really looking forward to getting all this coronavirus out of the way and the world getting back on track and getting back to my job."

Like many boxers, Fury is unable to train at his usual gym so he's trying to stay fit at home.

The 31-year-old is doing fitness sessions with his wife and children that are broadcast on Instagram live.

"It's quite difficult because obviously I'm not allowed to go to gyms for training," Fury said.

"However, I've been doing every morning at 9am a workout video with the world live on Instagram. We do a 50-minute workout.

"It helps me stay in shape and helps many, many people out there who join in from all over the world.

"I'm very grateful I can help people with their fitness and mental health problems during these lockdown times.

"I've got Paris here and the kids. Everyone goes nuts in the front room while we're working out."
