The pair's entertaining first fight ended in a draw in December 2018, with Fury securing victory in their rematch last year.

In what has been one of heavyweight boxing's most engrossing rivalries, one of the most dramatic moments came in the first fight when Fury staggeringly got back up after suffering a brutal knockdown by Wilder.

Many people suggested that The Gypsy King's ability to rise to his feet mirrored the action that The Undertakers used to do in the WWE.

Now, ahead of his trilogy bout ahead the Bronze Bomber, The Undertaker - whose real name is Mark Calaway - has sent a message of support to the Brit.

He told Fury to smash Wilder and then tell him "Rest in Peace"- which is a nod to the WWE legend's theme song.

"Hey champ! It's The Undertaker from the WWE man, I just wanted to reach out and wish you good luck on tomorrow night's fight, not that you need it," said the retired wrestler.

"You've already smashed this guy really properly and I've no doubt that you're gonna do it again.

"But I just wanted you to know, I'm gonna be watching and I wanna see you drop this guy one more time.

"You smash this guy and when you're looking over him, just for me, look down at him and say 'Rest in Peace'".

Fury responded to the message, writing on Twitter: "I got you".

Wilder has been heavily criticised for how reacted to his defeat to Fury, with the American listing a number of excuses for why he lost the bout.

The American has also recently claimed that The Gypsy King and his team would come up with 'another' plan to cheat their way to victory.

Fury arguably comes in to the fight as the favourite having won the previous bout, but Wilder can never be underestimated considering the power he posses.
