But the self-proclaimed 'Gypsy King' doesn't think the potential undisputed clash with 'AJ' is a No.1 vs. No.2 match-up.

Fury, who claimed the WBC world heavyweight title in February, rates Wilder better than Joshua.

"Deontay Wilder is the second best heavyweight in the world. I believe he knocks Anthony Joshua out and everyone behind me," Fury told Dev Sahni on The Lockdown Lowdown.

"Everybody else out there, I think he knocks them out because me being a master boxer and people think 'just go forward on Deontay Wilder now you knock him out.'

"The fact of the matter is if they watch the tape I'm not just going forward, I was using feints, I was using a calculated jab, I was going up and downstairs, hitting the body and hitting the head.

"I was also using the double feint with the front foot, using the front legs as levers to jump in and land big shots on him and it's not so easy to do."

He added: "Deontay Wilder also landed some big punches on me during the fight. Punches which would have taken a lot of people out.

"With me being heavy and a giant, fully hydrated, fully fit and fully active, I didn't feel the same as I did in the first fight."

Fury and Wilder will renew their rivalry later this year when they meet for a third time after the American triggered the immediate rematch clause following his devastating defeat.

If victorious, Fury is slated to face Anthony Joshua for the WBC, WBA (super), WBO, IBF and The Ring world heavyweight titles.
