Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder appeared focused and ready to go on Tuesday evening as they posed for Grand Arrivals photos outside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. 

The pair are gearing up for a money-spinning heavyweight trilogy bout on Saturday night, and got used to their surroundings outside the 20,000-capacity stadium in Nevada.

Fury and Wilder did not go head-to-head this early in the week, instead posing for separate photos – with the Brit wearing his WBC belt across his shoulder, and his opponent accompanied by his fiancee Telli Swift.

Fans aplenty turned out to get a glimpse of the boxing giants, with their faces also adorning the side of the stadium four days out from the fight. 

Fury in particular seemed in no mood for smiling as he stood in front of the cameras, shortly after telling Sportsmail that he has worked ‘non-stop’ to improve since previously knocking out Wilder 20 months ago.

The pair drew their initial bout at the Staples Center in LA in 2018, with Fury then going on to beat Tom Schwartz and Otto Wallin before knocking out Wilder in February 2020.

The coronavirus pandemic then put a halt to any further bouts, but the highly-anticipated third fight is now upon us this weekend. 

Despite Fury’s obvious ability, and the previous KO of Wilder, the Gypsy King is under no illusions about the size of the task this weekend.

‘I never take anyone for granted,’ he told Sportsmail‘s Jeff Powell. ‘Some people are writing Deontay off because I smashed him in seven rounds last time. Not me. He is still my most dangerous opponent. There are some good boxers but with Wilder’s power I know I’m messing with an atomic bomb. 

‘If he connects right with just one punch it can be a catastrophe for anyone. Trauma in the ring. I felt it when he put me down in our first fight.

‘You’ve got to have guts to succeed in boxing. Sheer guts. There will be moments when it’s not about how much you get hit but how much you can take. I’ve taken a lot in my life. That’s why I’ve trained for this one like Rocky in the movie.

‘No man could have done more. The toughest possible sparring. Eating nothing but the best foods — vegetables, fruits, fish, meats, vitamins, minerals.’
