The self-proclaimed 'Gypsy King' spoke to the media for the final time before facing Otto Wallin on Saturday and he was typically entertaining.

Fury takes on Wallin in Las Vegas on Mexico's Independence weekend, and a Spanish-speaking reporter asked him a question to which he replied in brilliant fashion.

After a long question in Spanish, he said: "Yes, I am the Mexican Gypsy King, El Rey de los Gitanos. It is a privilege to be boxing on Mexican Independence weekend.

"I'm going to put on a fantastic show and yes, I do love big cuddly toys and crayons."

His answer left the panel, which included promoters Bob Arum and Frank Warren, in hysterics.

Mexico's Independence weekend is usually a weekend reserved for the biggest Mexican fighters with 'Canelo' touted to headline a card this year.

But the superstar boxed failed to agree a fight in time with the undefeated Brit securing a fight on one of the biggest dates in the boxing calendar.

"What people don't know is, I wasn't meant to box this weekend," he said.

"I was supposed to box in New York in early October to mid-October. When we heard Canelo Alvarez wasn't going to be fighting on Mexican Independence weekend, I thought damn.

"What a shock, because this has been a special weekend for many years for boxing. The Mexican people aren't going to have a main event for the weekend, so I had to step in. I brought my fight date forward four weeks.

"Just so you could see me, and the Mexicans could have a main event on Independence weekend."

Fury faces Wallin and if he's victorious, he'll challenge Deontay Wilder for his WBC heavyweight world title in February 2020.
