Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder and Tyson “The Gypsy King” Fury made their grand arrivals Tuesday afternoon at the MGM Grand.
This kicked off fight week events for the most anticipated heavyweight showdown in two decades.
Lineal heavyweight champion, Fury (29-0-1, 20 KOs) rolled up in a red Ferrari. He donned a custom suit with his face plastered all over it.
“Las Vegas is the home of champions, and ‘The Gypsy King’ is here to put on a show. I am knocking that bum out in two rounds. It’s going to be an early night.”
“I’ve done all I can, and I can’t wait for Saturday night to be here. The WBC belt is the only major title I’ve yet to win. Saturday night, it will be mine.”
WBC heavyweight world champion, Wilder (42-0-1, 41 KOs) arrived shortly after in a Rolls-Royce SUV. Both were greeted by throngs of fans awaiting Saturday’s clash.
“The first fight was great, but the second time around we’re getting even more love. It’s been a blessed feeling and I’m so excited to show my greatness come Saturday night.”
“I’m going to knock out Tyson Fury in devastating fashion on Saturday night. After I show the world what greatness lies inside of me, I will continue to go even further and do more amazing things in this sport.”
They will renew their rivalry this Saturday, February 22, in a historic mega PPV event from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Wilder has defended his world title successfully 10 consecutive times, while Fury is unbeaten in five bouts since returning from a nearly three-year layoff in June 2018.
