Tyson Fury insists he has trained as hard for upcoming opponent Otto Wallin as he did for his world heavyweight title fight against Deontay Wilder.

Fury faces Wallin in Las Vegas on Saturday and believes a victory over the unbeaten Swede will pave the way for a rematch with Wilder.

Anthony Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn has questioned the quality of Fury’s recent opponents but the ‘Gypsy King’ says he is expecting a tough challenge this weekend.

Fury faces Wallin on the weekend of the anniversary of Mexican Independence, a traditional date for major fights in Las Vegas.

Fury wore a Lucha Libre wrestling mask and the Mexican colours to a pre-fight public workout on Wednesday, and the former WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight champion says it was his decision to fight on the national holiday.
