TYSON FURY has been warned he can’t afford to ‘slip up’ in his upcoming trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder.
The WBC heavyweight champion of the world will renew his rivalry with the American on October 9 in Las Vegas.
A blockbuster undisputed heavyweight title unification fight with fellow Brit Anthony Joshua awaits Fury should he get past Wilder.
And The Gypsy King’s promoter Frank Warren admits he can’t afford to lose his third clash with the Olympian, telling Unibet: “This is a fight he can’t afford to slip up on.”
Fan favourite Fury, 32, knocked out Wilder in the seventh round of their Sin City rematch last February.
And Warren is confident the lineal heavyweight champ will get the better of The Bronze Bomber again.
He added: “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.”
Fury is brimming with confidence ahead of his third meeting with Wilder, who he’s promised to run over like an ’18-wheeler’.
He said: “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.
“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.”
