Tyson Fury has vowed to dethrone WBC king Deontay Wilder in Los Angeles on Saturday night and bring the title back to the UK.

The two unbeaten heavyweights collide at the Staples Center this weekend and Fury is rated as the 2.50 underdog, with Wilder 1.57 to claim a 41st professional win.

The Briton has fought just twice since becoming a world champion by beating Wladimir Klitschko in Dusseldorf three years ago and no longer holds any titles, but Fury expects to secure the WBC belt this weekend.

“I’m going to win this fight – one million per cent,” he said, as reported by Sky Sports.

“There is not a doubt in my mind. No matter what he brings on Saturday night I will overcome him and win and take the WBC title back to the UK.

“You will see the best Tyson Fury. It needs to be the best Tyson Fury to compete at this level and beat such a champion as Deontay Wilder but I’m pretty confident that I have worked hard enough and done everything in my power.

“I’m going to go in there and do my best on Saturday night. I’m very relaxed I don’t get very tense before a fight – it’s just another fight for me. It’s another boxing match.

“I have already had 27 professional fights and been a professional for 10 years and I’ve needed to win all of them.”

Fury is 3.25 to win on points or 7.00 to win by KO/TKO/DQ/TD.
