Taking it to his Instagram, he wrote, “right guys i’m going off line until october 10, som1 else will be keeping you updated, Total blackout from me. see you in vegas. Let the games begin. 7 weeks saturday till i smash the big dosser Again

God bless”

Fury, over the past few weeks, spent some considerable time recovering and getting back to his old form. Citing that, he now needs to work solely on his boxing prowess in order to crucify Wilder once again.

‘The Gypsy King’ has already dented in Wilder’s resume, after handing ‘The Bronze Bomber’ his first career loss last year. If he beats him yet again, needless to say, Tyson Fury will pin himself as the greatest heavyweight of this era.
