Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "Fury is winning over fans left, right and centre and with just hours to go until the fight of the year, it looks as though our punters have already decided on their winner."

Elsewhere, the 30-year-old is 'one million per cent' certain his is winning the bout.

"I'm going to win this fight - one million per cent. There is not a doubt in my mind. No matter what he brings on Saturday night I will over come him and take the WBC title back to the UK," Fury said.

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

"I don't really have a weight goal (for this fight) but I've worked really hard and I'm as heavy as I have been in most of fights. I was 257 pounds on the nail this morning."
