Tyson Fury to begin final prep for Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas on Monday after ‘killing sparring partners’ in training

TYSON FURY's final preparations for his trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder will get underway in Las Vegas on Monday.

The Gypsy King will defend his WBC heavyweight title against the American a fortnight on Saturday in Sin City.

Fury, 33, has been prepping for his third clash with the Olympian in Morecambe since his return from the States in July.

But according to his co-promoter Bob Arum, the final leg of the Wythenshawe warrior's latest camp will begin in Vegas next week.

The 89-year-old told Boxing Scene: “I talked to him [Tuesday]. He was shouting how great he’s doing, how he’s killing sparring partners.

“He arrives in Las Vegas on Saturday, this Saturday. He’ll take Sunday off and then he’ll resume training at the Top Rank Gym on Monday.

“He’s been training twice a day in England. And (trainer) ‘Sugar Hill’ is over there with him.”

Fury battered Wilder from pillar to post in their rematch last February, stopping the previously undefeated power puncher in the seventh round.


And he's vowed to run through the Bronze Bomber in double quick time in their third clash.

He said: "I gave my game plan away the first time because he wasn’t good enough to do anything about it.

"And I’ll do the same thing this time because he's not good enough to do anything about it.

"Deontay Wilder is a one-trick pony. He's got one-punch power, we all know that - great.

"But what I'm going to do to Deontay Wilder this time is I'm going to run him over as if I’m an 18-wheeler and he's a human being.

"I guarantee he does not go past where he did before [the seventh round].

Bob Arum on Tyson Fury

"Because before, I only had five or six weeks practicing what I'm going to do to him. This time, I’ve had 18 months of practicing what I'm going to do to him.

"So I anticipate it's going to be like an 18-wheeler running over somebody, and that's what you're gonna see.

"I’m building my weight up, trying to get up to 300lbs for this fight.

"Because I’m looking for a big knockout straight away."

Wilder, 35, is determined to avenge the sole loss of his professional career in devastating fashion, saying: "My mind is very violent.

"We built a whole facility to commit a legal homicide and that's just what it is, my mind is very violent at this time.

"I can't wait, when you're contemplating and pre-meditating about harming a man and you see that person, what you've been thinking and feeling will come out.

"The only thing about it is, at that point in time, I have to wait until I get in the ring to really release because I can't do it on the outside, it'd defeat the purpose.

"The baby's got to eat, but when I do get in the ring, this is what I love about it, I'm able to release everything I've been feeling, everything I've been thinking, and get paid to do it."
