Tyson Fury has told Deontay Wilder that he'll have to "land more punches" on his face if he wants to win the pair's trilogy bout.
Fury and Wilder will compete for a third time on October 9 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, with the Brit having won their last bout after a draw when they first met.
And Fury has joked that his rival should try to hit him a few more times if he wants to win their second rematch, having barely landed a glove on the 'Gypsy King' in their fight last year.
Fury brutally dropped Wilder in the third and fifth rounds of their fight at the MGM Grand Garden Arena last February, before the fight was stopped in the seventh and he was crowned world heavyweight champion for the second time in his career.
And he is now set to defend a world title for the first time in his career, entering the trilogy as a huge favourite.
“I think he can try to land more punches on my face,” Fury said when asked what he would recommend that Wilder do differently.
“That will help his chances of winning, it’s usually a good idea if you try it. Hit the opponent in the face as much as possible.”
And Fury is completely unfazed by Wilder's new training methods, having sacked his coach Mark Breland after the rematch following outlandish accusations of cheating towards his former trainer.
He is now working with close friend and former opponent Malik Scott, with whom he has been a training partner for many years.
But Fury believes that there isn't much training Wilder can do to earn himself a victory for the world title, adding that boxing is much less technical than it is made out
“There’s no secret, there’s no rocket science to boxing,” Fury continued.
“A lot of these fighters try to make it technical and downloading data bulls***—I never heard such b******* in my life.

"It’s two men fighting, punching each other in the face and body for twelve rounds or less.
“It’s no rocket science to it. You got to train right, get to bed early. Drink plenty of water and get stuck in best way you can.”
Wilder has looked in tremendous physical shape in some of his bizarre training videos, while Fury has kept his training mostly behind closed doors.
And Matchroom Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn, who takes care of Fury's rival Anthony Joshua, has said he feels Fury isn't ready for the trilogy.
“ Tyson Fury doesn’t look ready, in my opinion,” Hearn said during an interview with Boxing Social.
“I still think he’ll win comfortably, but it does throw in the likelihood of a mistake happening.
"If you make a mistake against Deontay Wilder, it could cost you the fight. He’s very dangerous.
“I don’t see him [Fury] losing a round, but it doesn’t really matter. One mistake, and it can be over."
