I come from a small place in Sweden and now I'm here on the big stage.

I've been dreaming about this and now I'm ready to put it all on the line." STORY: Former world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury will be back in action in Las Vegas on September 14th as he takes on Sweden's Otto Wallin.

The two appeared on stage together in their final news conference before Saturday's clash.

Wallin (20-0, 13 KOs), a 6-foot-5½ , 230-pound southpaw, was offered the biggest fight of his career against Fury (28-0-1, 20 KOs) in late July.

Fury remains on collision course with WBC champion Deontay Wilder following their battle to a draw last December.

The British fighter shocked the world in 2015 when he defeated long-reigning champion Wladimir Klitschko to capture the IBF, WBA and WBO belts.

Fury has amused boxing fans in Las Vegas with a charm offensive to lure Mexican boxing fans to his side.

Saturday's fight falls close to Mexican Independence Day, typically a big weekend to showcase Mexican fighters.

Fury appeared at his public workout sporting a Mexican wrestling match and waved the Mexican flag in honor of the upcoming occasion.
