TYSON FURY promised an exciting show to his fans as he arrived at the T-Mobile arena to face Deontay Wilder.
The Gypsy King, 33, arrived in a confident mood as always and looked relaxed as he walked into the venue behind wife Paris.
The heavyweight world champion pretended to play some air drums before greeting members of his team, including commercial manager Spencer Brown.
Fury arrived 40 minutes before opponent Wilder to watch Jared Anderson – whom he has sparred with in training – knock out Vladimir Tereshkin in the second round of their bout.
He also filmed a short video message to his fans, encouraging them to stay up to watch him in action against Wilder.
Shared on Frank Warren’s Twitter page, Fury said in the video: “Hey guys, Gypsy King here reporting live and direct from Las Vegas, Nevada, USA!
“It’s 2 am in the UK, you’ve only got to wait two more hours guys. Big GK’s coming, hold up!
“Take a Red Bull take some energy drinks whatever you need! Stay awake, it’s going to be exciting.”
BETTING SPECIAL: GET 30/1 ON FURY OR 50/1 ON WILDER FOR HEAVYWEIGHT BOXING CLASH
Fury is usually well supported at his fights but fans have had to remain in the UK this time around due to Covid restrictions preventing flights to the U.S.
The city of Las Vegas may be grateful for that, as last time out – during Wilder vs Fury II – Brits drank Sin City dry celebrating Fury’s victory.
Despite the weight of expectation from fans back home, Fury is not showing any pre-fight nerves.
Mike Tyson even warned Fury: “The eyes of the Gods of war are upon you.”
But after dominating Wilder in a brutal seventh-round stoppage in February 2020 Fury is in a confident spirit, and wants his fans to stay up and watch him create history once again.
