On Monday, Fury also revealed that he has never been to the iconic Strip – because he wanted his first trip to be on business.
‘I made a promise to myself when I was younger I wouldn’t go to Las Vegas until I fought there,’ said Fury, who was sporting an eye-catching black and white suit which featured pictures of the iconic heavyweights of yesteryear.
‘I’m really looking forward to going to Las Vegas, Los Angeles (for Wilder) was one thing but all the big fights happen in Las Vegas.
‘I remember waking up to see Ricky Hatton against Floyd Mayweather (in December, 2017), that was at the MGM Grand.’

He added: ‘To put my name alongside those (greats) is another thing ticked off the bucket list.’
Fury also insisted he is ready and willing to fight heavyweight rivals Wilder and WBA, IBF and WBO champion Anthony Joshua ‘whenever’ and ‘however’.
‘Either or, they’re both big fights for the fans,’ he said.
‘I’ve said I’ll fight them seven days a week… if I fought them 10 times, I’ll beat them 10 times. All we need to do is stop messing around and get the fights made.’
