Fury will challenge Wilder for the one world heavyweight title he has never held at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles.
During a promotional tour ahead of the fight, Fury said: "He hasn't got what he says he's got. I see fear in Deontay Wilder, I could sense his heartbeat through his suit.
But first, one must emerge victorious on Saturday night. Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs) is coming off of a thunderous knockout win over Luis Ortiz in March where he was truly challenged for the first time in his career. After scoring an early knockdown, the champion seemed to be dazed after a series of blows from Ortiz. But Wilder rallied to drop Ortiz in the 10th round and score the knockout win.
Fury (27-0, 19 KOs) is coming off a pair of decision wins over Francesco Pianeta and Sefer Seferi in his first action since taking a hiatus following a decision win over then unified heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko. With such a busy week expected, CBS Sports is providing a guide of all events taking place, plus our feature content, all in one place.
Wilder, 32, was born in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and had a tough upbringing. The ‘Bronze Bomber’ picked up boxing relatively late, as a 20-year-old, when he sought to provide support for his daughter who was born with spina bifida – a spinal cord injury. He now has four children and is expecting a fifth later this year.
Despite his amateur career only beginning in 2005, Wilder won bronze at the Beijing 2008 Olympics while representing the US. He turned professional later that year as a 23-year-old and after a spectacular rise through the professional ranks, became WBC world champion in 2015. Fury’s younger brother Marcellos Wilder also competes as a professional boxer.
The self-proclaimed ‘Gypsy King’, Fury is a fighter proud of his Irish traveller heritage. He follows a long line of family fighting, with his dad John Fury competing as a bare-knuckle boxer in the 1980s, his cousin Andy Lee a former WBO middleweight champion, and another cousin Hughie Fury the current British heavyweight champion.
Despite growing to his now mammoth stature of 6ft 9, Fury tipped the scales at only 1lb when he was born in Wythenshawe, Manchester, after being three months premature.
The now 30-year-old was named after famous American heavyweight Mike Tyson, and went on to represent both England and Ireland in an amateur career that spanned 35 fights. Aged 20, Fury turned professional in 2008, remaining unbeaten to eventually earn his shot at Wladimir Klitschko in 2015, where he recorded one of the most unexpected triumphs in British boxing history, claiming a points victory to win the WBA, IBF, WBO, IBO, Ring and lineal heavyweight titles.
"I can walk around here, and I can talk as good as any man in the country," Fury said.
"But when it comes to a fight, it's going to be a hell of a fight. Deontay Wilder: massive puncher. Me: skillful boxer. It's going to be an epic night. This is a legacy fight ... and after I win, he's going to hire me as his publicist because I do believe I can promote Deontay Wilder back to being heavyweight champion of the world in no time.
"He's great for the heavyweight division," Wilder said of Fury.
"He's charismatic. He can talk. I've got a great dancing partner. He's fearless in the ring, and he's got a background of boxing in his blood. It's good that he's from another country so you get to see different cultures, different personalities from the two of us.
"You've got one from America and you've got one from Great Britain. So that's going to make it even more pleasurable for me when I knock him out."
