Tyson Fury sends a message to Deontay Wilder ahead of the trilogy bout

"When we're in there, I'll adjust to whatever it is on the night and what he's going to do."

Tyson Fury claims he is not affected by mind games ahead of his WBC heavyweight title defence against Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas.

World champion Fury is preparing for a third meeting with his American rival having knocked him out in February 2020 after their first contest ended in a draw.

Wilder chose to remain silent at a previous press conference and Fury says he will not be unsettled by his opponent's behaviour going into Saturday's bout.

"I don't care what they do. None of my business," Fury told Sky Sports.

"I keep my own business to myself and I don't really care what that big dosser does, nothing.

"I don't care what he does. If he talks or he doesn't, it doesn't make any difference to me.

"Mind games don't work with me anyway."

Defeat to Fury is the sole loss on Wilder's professional record.

The 33-year-old Briton is the overwhelming favourite to retain his title as he bids to extend his undefeated streak to 32 fights.

"I don't think it matters, what he does, because it's not about him, it's about me, what I do," Fury said.

"It wouldn't matter if he ran around the ring in a circle, if he comes forward throwing bombs.

"It doesn't make any difference. When we're in there, I'll adjust to whatever it is on the night and what he's going to do.

"Winning is winning, an inch or a mile - I'll take a knockout or I'll take a points victory.

"It doesn't matter, as long as you get the win, you move on to the next one."

Fury will win in 'quick fashion'

Fury has left Wilder in no doubt of his intentions upon his arrival in Las Vegas.

Wilder is banking on a new and improved style to get the better of Fury at the third time of asking.

But Fury shrugged: "I think you could go to college and get a Masters degree in nearly two years, so for a boxer to change his style is very easy to do.

"But no matter what Deontay Wilder does I'm still going to knock him the f*** out. In quick time, quick fashion."

Wilder has consistently refused to acknowledge Fury as the WBC champion following his defeat via technical knockout in the seventh round and merely insists their business is not over.

But Fury added: "It just shows you that I'm living in Wilder's mind, rent free.

"The whole time, two years. Every time he looks in the mirror he sees Tyson Fury. Every time he goes to bed, before he closes his eyes, he sees the Gypsy King.

"Every time he wakes up he thinks of Tyson Fury. Even when he goes to bed with his missus, he's thinking of Tyson Fury."
