Fury wrote on Instagram: “Right guys i’m going off line until October 10, someone else will be keeping you updated.

“Total blackout from me. see you in Vegas. Let the games begin. 7 weeks Saturday till I smash the big dosser again. God bless.”

Fury’s announcement comes after statements credited to his father, John Fury, that he might avoid the fight following the birth difficulties faced by his new born daughter.

John Fury, the father of Tyson, recently voiced his concern over his son surrounding himself with “yes men” whilst in the US, saying he could lose to Wilder if he didn’t get rid of his ‘yes men’

Tyson has returned to the UK to look after his newborn daughter and is training with his father, John in Liverpool.

“When he gets off the plane in Las Vegas, you’ve got 200 yes men waiting for him looking to get that from him,” John Fury said.

“‘Yes, Tyson. You’re this, you’re that, you’re the best in the world. We love you.’

“This kid’s heard it all before in my life. They don’t love you, they don’t care you, they just want your money and your profile to make their status bigger for being around you.”
