Tyson Fury is feeling confident heading into his third showdown with Deontay Wilder on July 24.

The Gypsy King is yet to lose to the American after two meetings with a split decision draw and a crushing seventh round stoppage in his favour thus far.

The undisputed heavyweight title fight with Anthony Joshua was signed and ready to go before Wilder took his case to the court of arbitration and forced Fury to rematch him.

Now the boxing world is hoping Fury and Joshua both win their next outings – with AJ likely fighting Oleksandr Usyk in September – so that the fight can be made again.

But, Fury doesn’t think much of Joshua.

In fact, he believes Wilder is a vastly superior fighter who would knock AJ out in the first round.

“I’ll deal with these guys later – the most important thing to me is Wilder, the most dangerous heavyweight in the world who would knock out Joshua in the first round,” he told Sky Sports.

“I’ve got to get past Wilder then those guys will get their five minutes of fame. I’ll give them the biggest beatdown they have had in their lives.

“As I’ve told Eddie Hearn, the difference between me and them is they are businessmen and I’m a Spartan.”

Fury says that he does not care about the money, belts or even becoming the undisputed champion. All he cares about is fighting.

“This talk of undisputed means nothing to me. I’m not Eddie Hearn or Anthony Joshua. I fight because this is what I do – it’s what I was born to do,” he said.

“I’ve got nothing personal against Wilder.

“I don’t care about belts, or that stuff being remembered. I care about smashing people.

“If Wilder is in front of me I will give him a good hiding. The motivation? It’s what I was born to do.

“I’m not interested in money, belts or whatever comes with it. I’m interested in blood and the fight.”

If Fury can beat Wilder in Las Vegas he will have a clear path to whatever fight he wants, but the huge domestic showdown with Joshua – with our without all the belts – is still one of the biggest fights in boxing.
