FRANK WARREN has warned Deontay Wilder that he will face a different Tyson Fury when they face off in their rematch.
Warren said: “He [Fury] will be in much better shape than he was the first time around.
“That time he was basically training to make weight rather than training for the fight.
“Anything can happen though, we saw what happened with Anthony Joshua against Andy Ruiz.
“Even when Tyson fought Wladimir Klitschko, he was a big underdog in that fight, so anything can happen with these big guys. He cannot take his eye off the ball at all.
“Tyson is doing what he needs to do and that is stay busy.
“He needs to stay active so he doesn’t put weight on, mentally he needs to be on the money too.
“He is going to be more dangerous than ever.
“This is Tyson Fury with 18 months behind him in the gym rather than a six-month crash course.”

ANDY Ruiz Jr showed off his heavyweight spending credentials when he shelled out thousands of pounds on bling during a visit to a London ‘jeweller to the stars’.
The world champion – known as the “Mexican Rocky” thanks to his rags to riches story – flashed the cash at Frost of London after facing off with Anthony Joshua at a press conference ahead of their rematch.
Arriving in style in a fleet of silver Rolls Royces, he made his purchases after checking out watches, chains and pendants at the central London shop whose clients include Lewis Hamilton and Mariah Carey.
And he even treated himself to a Snickers bar despite preparing to face English hero Joshua once again.
AJ has dismissed Saudi Arabia's shocking human rights record towards gays and told fans: If you're not allowed to come to the country, just stay at home and watch me on TV.
Joshua will face Andy Ruiz Jr in December desperate to reclaim his world heavyweight titles – but the decision to stage the fight in a country where homosexuality is illegal has proved controversial.
The 29-year-old has tried to steer clear of questions about whether it is right to be taking the millions on offer to compete in a country with such strict laws.
But asked by the BBC about the fact homosexuals can receive the death penalty, Joshua let his guard down for the first time.
He said: “There are certain polices that are in place in the country and there are certain policies we just have to abide by, and I abide by the law and that’s just how it goes in certain places.
“If you cant come to the country, you can still watch it, you’re still open to support and I appreciate your support from every community.”
