The Mexican majority in a crowd of several hundred loved that, their national flag waving over his head and a few words of pre/rehearsed Spanish.

This is Mexico Independence weekend and Sin City traditionally celebrates with a big fight.

Fury told his audience in a ring on a casino floor: ‘it’s an honour for me to be the one boxing here this Saturday in my new home town.’ 

The lineal world heavyweight champion is making his second Las Vegas appearance, against the hitherto unknown but so far unbeaten Otto Wallin.

The fight looks likely to be no more competitive than his quick fire stoppage of German Tom Schwarz earlier this summer but Fury told the fans: ‘I promise you a special show on this special weekend. ‘ 

Fury v Wallin will be televised late Saturday night on BT Sport Box Office.

Fury has also refused to back down in his war of words with heavyweight champion Andy Ruiz Jr, after the British fighter claimed again that he could beat the Mexican with one hand tied behind his back. 

Speaking on the ‘Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson’ podcast, Fury said: ‘I think his win over Anthony Joshua was very good on two weeks’ notice.

‘I would tie one hand behind my back and beat him with either one. I’d jab his nut right off. That would be the easiest fight ever.’
