Fury vs Wilder celebrity guest list includes Lance Armstong, actors and more

A host of star-studded guests will attend Tyson Fury's final heavyweight showdown with Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

Following an ill-tempered build-up, the pair's trilogy bout at the T-Mobile Arena in Nevada will conclude a tempestuous rivalry, that dates back to their first clash in December 2018 which ended in a controversial draw.

Fury though, avenged what many saw as an injustice in that clash by prevailing in style 14 months later, dismantling the American and earning a stoppage win in the seventh round.

The Gypsy King is overwhelming favourite with the bookies to prevail again, and although wife Paris and brother Tommy have flown over he won't enjoy the same volume of crowd support this time around, with travel restrictions preventing British fans from flying over to the US.

There will however, be plenty of A-list names in the building, with TMZ Sports stating 'a ton of celebs' are set to be ringside.

Disgraced former cyclist Lance Armstrong, who was stripped of his seven Tour de France wins after finally admitting to using performance enhancing drugs throughout his career, will be there to see Fury put his WBC and The Ring heavyweight titles on the line.

NBA stars Draymond Green and Damian Lillard are also expected to be watching on, as are actors Vince Vaughn, Michael B. Jordan and Michael J. Fox.

Fellow boxers Shakur Stevenson and Terence Crawford have also bagged tickets.

Hype around the clash has ramped up this week, with Wilder doubling down on accusations that Fury, 33, 'cheated' in their second fight.

The Bronze Bomber's bizarre claims centred around the gloves that the British fighter was using, and just hours before their third battle, he raised the issue again.

Wilder, 35, expressed his fury to Nevada State Athletic Commission (NASC) officials about the horse hair being used as padding inside his opponent's gloves – and is adamant the padding is insufficient.

He even claimed he had to 'educate' officials who didn't understand his theories as they had never fought professionally.

The outburst followed a verbal altercation between the pair during the weigh-ins, with Fury accused of speaking insultingly about Wilder's mother as tempers flared.

Previously, Fury, whose pro-record stands at 30-0-1, had said that the excuses Wilder made for his defeat last time out made him 'weak' and 'less of a man'.
