Deontay Wilder has landed in Saudi Arabia ahead of his crucial heavyweight showdown with Zhilei Zhang on Saturday, June 1.

The heavy-hitting stars both lost to New Zealand’s Joseph Parker in their last fights and now meets as part of the Frank Warren-Eddie Hearn promotional 5 x 5 show.

“It’s been a real fun camp, real exciting, my focus has been on point, my mindset has been on point, my aggression has been off the chart, and I’m ready to go,” Wilder said on his Instagram.

“I could say a lot of things but on June 1st it’s going to be the revealing and everyone’s going to be the witness. I feel like I’m ready, I sound and look like I’m ready in all aspects of it.”

The 6ft 7ins Wilder is up against the 6ft 6ins Zhang. Wilder has knocked out 42 of 43 victims, the Chinese puncher has stopped 21 of 26.

Wilder is 38, and keen to get back into the heavyweight mix and among the biggest fights. An impressive victory over the big southpaw would do that.

“It’s been a long journey for me and I had to sit back and take a little breather,” Wilder said.

“I can’t wait. I’ve got to go back and get what’s mine. 

“I’m not afraid of death. Look at my occupation. We risk our lives for other people’s entertainment, and that’s just point blank, period. There’s no other business like this, whether the athlete risks his life for his money. Blood, sweat and tears.”
