The American faces Robert Helenius on October 15
Wilder, 36, held an open workout in Las Vegas with his coach Malik Scott and revealed just how intense his comeback camp has been.
He said: “We’ve been doing 30 or 40 rounds nonstop. Only time I get water is during the break.
“I’ve just been doing things like that to challenge myself, doing things that have never been done before, or that you don’t really do in boxing.
“I wanted to see how my body adjusts to the long length of time without a break.
“When you can go a long time without taking a break, you’re in shape.”
Wilder’s career was left in doubt following a brutal 11th-round knockout to Fury, 34, last October.
But after a state of himself was put up in his home of Alabama, it inspired the ex-WBC champion to carry on fighting.
And now Wilder feels rejuvenated as he gets set to begin his road back to the heavyweight throne.

He said: “It feels good. Even in my first reign, a lot of it was my way. But this right here is totally 100 per cent Deontay Wilder’s way.
“I’m in a different position right now. And it just feels great to be in the position I’m in with no pressure.
“I don’t need the business anymore. When I do it, I do it for my own personal reasons.
“I’m doing it for the people and I’m doing it for some hardware, some titles.”
