But Wilder in a recent press conference had his say to the potential coalition between the two British heavyweights.

"Look at those bit*hes, they're all some bit*hes. Who tries to team up on someone?

"You say you're the best, now you motherf***ers are trying to team up with each other? Guess it's UK vs USA," Wilder said.

The first fight between Wilder and Fury ended in a draw back in December 2018 and the rematch promises produce fireworks on 22 February, 2020.

Fury will be looking to defeat Wilder and claim the WBC belt then stage a showdown with Joshua later in 2020.

The 31-year-old made a sensational comeback after falling into mental issues as his weight skyrocketed to 400lbs.

He lost more than 10 stone (63kg) in 12 months and returned to ring where he has remained unbeaten in his whole career.

Fury recently captioned a post on social media: "When someone says you can't do something, look at this and remember anything is possible. This is me at over 400lb."
