Frank Warren, co-promoter of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, cautions that his fighter can't afford to slip up in the upcoming trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder.

They were scheduled to collide on July 24, with the event being pushed back when Fury tested positive for COVID-19.

The contest will take place on October 9th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

In the February 2020 rematch, Fury dropped Wilder twice and picked up a stoppage win in the seventh round to capture the WBC title.

The third time around, Warren expects his boxer to win in style.

"This is a fight he can't afford to slip up on," Warren told Unibet.

"I've been thinking about it a lot, the fight. And the only person who can beat Tyson is Tyson. That's the only person that can beat him at the moment. So providing he's focused and he's okay, I think he'll do a job on Wilder."

At their kick-off press conference to officially announce the fight, Fury made it clear that he would defeat Wilder in more impressive fashion when they meet for a third time.

"I gave my game plan away the first time because he wasn’t good enough to do anything about it. And I’ll do the same thing this time because he's not good enough to do anything about it," Fury said.

"Deontay Wilder is a one-trick pony. He's got one-punch power, we all know that - great. But what I'm going to do to Deontay Wilder this time is I'm going to run him over as if I’m an 18-wheeler and he's a human being.

"I guarantee he does not go past where he did before [the seventh round]. Because before, I only had five or six weeks practicing what I'm going to do to him. This time, I’ve had 18 months of practicing what I'm going to do to him. So I anticipate it's going to be like an 18-wheeler running over somebody, and that's what you're gonna see. I’m building my weight up, trying to get up to 300lbs for this fight. Because I’m looking for a big knockout straight away."
