Meanwhile, Wilder is keen to successfully defend his title for the 11th time including the draw against Fury.
The American fighter is coming into the rematch ranked as the world's second-best active heavyweight by BoxRec, The Ring Magazine and Transnational Boxing Rankings Board.
Wilder's knockout-to-win ratio stands at 98% with 20 knockouts in the first round making a dangerous opponent.
Wilder is oozing with confidence ahead of the rematch as he insists that he went into the first match at 50%.
“In that first fight I was probably 50 per cent or less. I’ve spoken before about my broken hand, but I also didn’t fight like I normally do. I did a lot of things I don’t normally do," Wilder said on The Sun.
“When I look back at that fight, me and my trainer Jay Deas were talking about it and I can pinpoint things and say ‘why did I do that?’.
“I know why I did it, moving forward with my gloves high, swinging with no hope, just doing certain things because of the excitement of the fight."
The winner between Wilder and Fury is expected to challenge two-time unified heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua.
