They went to a controversial twelve round split draw in the first meeting in December 2018, with Fury going down twice in the contest.
In their February 2020 rematch, Fury dominated the action and dropped Wilder twice for a stoppage victory in the seventh round, when Wilder's former co-trainer, Mark Breland, threw in the towel.
Their trilogy bout is all set for July 24th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Wilder believes their second meeting should have never been stopped, because he feels Fury was more hurt in the first encounter and the bout was allowed to continue.
"Not only is Fury in for a shock, but the whole world is," Wilder exclusively told Sky Sports.
"I'm looking forward to July 24, to show the greatness of me. Of course, Fury [was more hurt in the first fight]. I gave him concussion. Didn't you see his eyes go back in the back of his head?
"Even under the circumstances that I was under, he can't even knock me out. I was alive and well, still standing on my feet, so he has a lot to worry about. Not me. Like I said, the truth shall set you free. This is retaliation.
"The towel should never have been thrown in with a fighter like me. When you have a fighter like me, you let me fight off my shield. Like I always asked to do so. When you have a fighter that, you have to be perfect for twelve rounds and he only has to be perfect for two seconds. You let it go until the fat lady sings and during that time, the fat lady wasn't singing."
