Taking to the stage while on tour, the Gypsy King said:
This time, this time, this time… I haven’t been out of the ring for three years.
This time I haven’t been abusing too much alcohol.
This time I can knock him the fuck out.
The latest instalment is scheduled to take place in either New York City or Las Vegas, World Boxing News reports.
Heavyweights Fury and Wilder first came to blows on December 1 last year at the Staples Center in Los Angeles in match which ended in a controversial draw.
Some fans were convinced Fury’s outstanding performance should’ve swung in his favour, and it seems the confident the 30-year-old will defeat the ‘Bronze Bomber’ in their second head-to-head.
Fury will also come up against controversial Jarrell Miller on October 5 in New York, with Miller tipped as the favourite to step into the ring with the renowned British boxer.
Wilder is also on the look out for a rematch with Luis Ortiz in September after his impressive knock out against Dominic Breazeale in May.
