And the WBC heavyweight champ has brought in the big guns in order to prepare him for his third meeting with the American.

Parker, 29, shared a snap of himself and Fury to Instagram late on Tuesday night.

The post’s accompanying caption read: “Vegas camp with @gypsyking101 and the team just under 5 weeks to go. See you soon.”

Tyson Fury is gearing up for a trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder
And The Gypsy King has vowed to run through The Bronze Bomber like an ’18-wheeler’

And the Morecambe-based mauler has vowed to run through the Olympian like an ’18-wheeler’.

He said: “I gave my game plan away the first time because he wasn’t good enough to do anything about it.

“And I’ll do the same thing this time because he’s not good enough to do anything about it.

“Deontay Wilder is a one-trick pony. He’s got one-punch power, we all know that – great.

“Because before, I only had five or six weeks practicing what I’m going to do to him. This time, I’ve had 18 months of practicing what I’m going to do to him.

“So I anticipate it’s going to be like an 18-wheeler running over somebody, and that’s what you’re gonna see.

“I’m building my weight up, trying to get up to 300lbs for this fight. Because I’m looking for a big knockout straight away.”

A second consecutive victory over Wilder will put Fury on course for an undisputed heavyweight title fight with Anthony Joshua.

But Fury insists he’s not fussed about unifying the division, telling talkSPORT: “Undisputed and unifying jobs, it’s all bulls**t to me. I’m not interested.

“Whoever the fights are who is there and is available to fight, we fight. As for like undisputed and unified, I’ve done all that.

“I’ve done unification with [Wladimir] Klitschko, I’ve won all the belts before.

Tyson Fury isn’t thinking about an undisputed heavyweight title fight with Anthony Joshua

“Two-time world champion without being beat. I could just rattle on about what I’ve done for the next two hours.

“But we already know what I’ve done, we already know who I am. Boxing is boxing. Whether they fight, whether I fight, fine, that’s it.

“No matter if I fight a guy that’s absolutely rubbish or I fight the best guy in the world, I still train hard, I still dedicate [myself], I still sacrifice to it.

“You’ll never catch Tyson Fury on the off, ever.

“Because I know you never underestimate the underdog because I’ve been the underdog every single time in every single fight I’ve ever had. But I always come out on top.”
