DEONTAY WILDER has boarded a flight to Las Vegas ahead of his trilogy fight against Tyson Fury this weekend.
The Bronze Bomber, who will challenge for the WBC heavyweight title in the early hours of Sunday morning UK time, flew to the state of Nevada alongside his fiancee Telli Swift and daughter Kaorii Lee Wilder.
Both he and his family looked thrilled to be jetting off as they prepare to be involved in one of the biggest fights of the year.
His fiancee Telli posted several photos and videos on Instagram with one of them captioned: "Vegas bound."
Wilder's visit to the bright lights of Las Vegas comes 20 months after he last fought there.
In February 2020, the American heavyweight was dismantled by Fury in a one-sided beatdown as he suffered his first professional loss and relinquished the WBC strap.
Following an arbitrational ruling and a number of delays, the pair will now meet once again after their draw in December 2018 and Fury's win last year.
And Wilder, who is renowned for his incredible knockout power, has been tipped to stop Fury this time around by his new trainer Malik Scott.
BETTING SPECIAL: GET 30/1 ON FURY OR 50/1 ON WILDER FOR HEAVYWEIGHT BOXING CLASH
Scott, who is making his debut in Wilder's corner, said: "He will KO Fury and will never lose another fight afterwards. Anthony Joshua or Oleksandr Usyk is next.”
But Fury has not wavered in his unrivalled confidence ahead of the trilogy clash.
The undefeated Brit said: "I'd hate to be Deontay Wilder right now.
"When I put that final nail in his coffin, it's retirement – bye bye b**** Wilder.
"He used to be a gladiator. He met the old, fat 'Gypsy King' – knocked him spark out in seven rounds."
Fury and Wilder will clash at around 5am BST on Sunday morning as they look to end their rivalry once and for all.
