Tyson Fury emerged through the sun roof pointing to the sky as the undefeated English fighter arrived in style ahead of the weigh-in for his heavyweight bout with Deontay Wilder. 

The 30-year-old is facing the biggest fight of his professional career since he became the heavyweight champion of the world by beating Wladimir Klitschko in Germany in 2015. 

There was some talk in Los Angeles that the weight-in may not go ahead as planned after Fury and Wilder came to blows at the final press conference when their verbal jibes sparked a scuffle during the head-to-head.

Fury looked calm and relaxed in the LA sunshine as he unleashed a huge roar to the crowd on arrival at the weigh-in.  

Wilder is defending his WBC heavyweight title against Fury who is making his third appearance following a two-and-a-half year absence from the ring. 

Both men are undefeated in their professional careers. Alabama fighter Wilder holds an unbeaten record of 40-0, with 39 of those wins coming by knockout, while Fury is 27-0, with 19 wins coming by stoppage.

Boxing fans remain split on who they think will come out on top with the two fighter’s styles a fascinating contrast with Wilder insistent he will continue his knockout streak in the Staples Center.

The winner of the LA showdown is likely to edge ever closer to a unification fight with Anthony Joshua – with the WBC belt the only one missing from his heavyweight collection.

And while Joshua will be one interested spectator this weekend as to how the fight plays out, he has already given his verdict as to who he feels will come out on top.

Joshua, William Hill’s global brand ambassador, said: ‘Definitely Wilder. I’m saying Wilder, I was thinking about it today.

‘When I fought Klitschko, he had 16-17 months off because Fury got injured and had to pull out of their fight so he had a long period off. He said it done him well because he was training in between, he revitalised his body. He has been doing it for so long.

‘He took himself out of the box, freshened up, he trained so he kept his body active, and then he had a fight with me.But due to the fact I was active while he was waiting to fight Fury, I managed to get the stoppage in the 11th round. That activeness plays a big part in boxing.’
