Tyson Fury has claimed that he will not be in 100 percent condition for the trilogy clash against Deontay Wilder.
The 'Gypsy King' is currently in Las Vegas, awaiting his call to meet in the ring with his famous foe for the third time.
And he will be faced with a 'Bronze Bomber' who will be desperate for redemption after a damaging defeat last year.
Fury has had his fair share of disruption, and has now admitted that he may not be at "100 percent" going into the latest instalment.
“I feel good, relaxed and confident as I always have been, I am never beaten up about a fight it is just a boxing match," Fury told Boxing Social.
“It has just been a normal training camp, there has been good days and bad days, no-one is ever 100% going into a fight, let’s put it that way, but I am going to bring action and ferocity on fight night and I will be ready.
The 33-year-old has faced individual challenges in the build-up including suffering from a positive coronavirus test that delayed the fight.
Upon his return to home, his newborn baby daughter Athena also suffered a battle with illness which he has now fully recovered from in more positive news.
But now he insists he is focussed on the huge task at hand, and is determined to not make the same mistakes as domestic rival Anthony Joshua.
“It was a disappointment to see Joshua lost his fight, but you have to give all credit to the other guy it was a superb gameplay,” Fury told the MMA Hour.
“It is only the third time someone has jumped up from cruiserweight to win a world title so he deserves credit where it is due. This is what happens when you look ahead to bigger fights, Joshua was probably looking at Usyk and thinking of Tyson Fury.
Will Fury win once again on Saturday night? Let us know your assessment of the fight in the comments section below.
“But I won’t make the same mistake and look at Anthony Joshua, even if he had won I wouldn’t have because I know every opponent is dangerous especially at this level. It seems to me I could pick a bum out and he would fight the best he has ever fought to change his life.
“With Wilder he has got a lot to prove and a lot he has to accept things in his life, but he will be dangerous while it lasts.”
Fury has been forced to talk out against his opponent after Wilder made further cheat claims ahead of their latest battle.
But the lineal champion branded Wilder "unstable" and has questioned whether the American is suffering from mental health problems.
A victory for Fury could set up a whole host of fights including a showdown with Dillian Whyte, who could be reinstated as WBC mandatory challenger.
The 33-year-old has also issued a late push to President Joe Biden to allow his fans to attend the event in Las Vegas this weekend.
His army of fans is a familiar sight at his American shows, who will now have to pay a pay-per-view price of £24.95 which was confirmed in the UK.
