"If I lose on Saturday, I'm a fraud," Fury,27, said ahead of the fight.

"I won't be the champion I think I am. It would mean I'm no good. Simple. If I can't beat Wlad, it means I'm no good. And I'll be the first person to say that.

"I'd think about retiring, for sure. Because make no mistake, there's nobody out there other than Wlad that's any good. I think Wlad could beat the rest of them out there.”
