The WBC heavyweight world champion joined Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid on Good Morning Britain and hilariously confessed that he'll never get bored of beating Wilder up.

"I'll be obliged to give him a bit more, you never get bored of beating Deontay Wilder up, it's just one of those things you take great pride in doing," he said.

"I really did what I said I was going to do. Not many people in boxing say something then do exactly what they said 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 getting the world back on track and getting back to my job."

Fury beat Wilder last month in Las Vegas to claim the WBC heavyweight world title.

And the American wasted no time in triggering the contracted rematch clause.

The third meeting was originally scheduled for July, but the highly-anticipated clash has been postponed due to the coronavirus crisis.

The championship bout is now slated to take place in October.

"You could not guarantee the fighters that the event would take place on that date. We couldn't convince them or ourselves," Top Rank promoter Bob Arum explained.

"Where were they going to train for it? It just made no sense. You just have to take a step back. How are you going to sell tickets? It's absolutely ridiculous to say the fight is on when the Brits can't even get there.

"So everybody has to take a step back. Boxing is not isolated. It's part of what's happening in the world. So possibly the fight will be in early October."
