Las Vegas police are ramping up security ahead of Saturday night’s highly anticipated fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor Mcgregor.
Officials are on high alert amid fears of a potential knife or truck attack on the city’s famous strip.
This comes after an ISIS propaganda video featuring images of Vegas hotels and casinos released in May.
Hundreds of steel posts will be installed along the strip to help prevent a truck attack, while hotel staff have been advised to report any suspicious activity.
Hundreds of thousands of fight fans and tourists are expected to be in Las Vegas for one of the busiest weekends of the year.
The big event is set to take place Saturday night at the T-mobile arena.
