The Brit also confirmed he will head to Miami after the trip to Texas.
Fury took to Instagram to heap praise on the 89-year-old in a heartfelt video.
He said: “Hi there guys I’d just like to say a massive shoutout to Bob Arum the legendary promoter who has yet again delivered on his word.
“He has let me use his jet to go to Dallas and then to Miami.
“He has also sorted me out everything I needed. Massive thank you Bob Arum you are the mother-f****** don.
“Respect Bob, god bless you son. See you soon. All my love to the family.”
Earlier today, Saunders confirmed his fight with Canelo is BACK ON but a replacement is being flown out just in case.
The eagerly-anticipated super-middleweight title unification bout with the pound-for-pound king was in danger of falling through due to a row over the size of the ring.

The pair were initially set to trade blows in a 20ft ring at the Dallas Cowboys Stadium, which Team Saunders thought gave Mexican mauler Canelo an unfair advantage.
Saunders, along with his best mate and WBC king Fury, wanted a 22ft ring, at least.
But now there appears to have been a compromise reached.
Saunders shared a video on his social media last night, saying: “Hey all, just wanted to say, I’m pleased the issue is sorted because obviously you can see I tagged Eddie Hearn and Canelo in the last video.
“The ring is not a problem, so thumbs are up, chilling back watching a few films, Eddie, get the ring in mate.”
Matchroom boss Eddie Hearn was seemingly worried enough to have fellow Brit John Ryder ready to step in for Saunders.
Boxing News reported that Ryder, who lost to Saunders in 2013, ‘is flying out to Texas and has declared he is willing to jump in and face Canelo’.
They add: “Ryder was training for a fight in June and set to fly out for promotional work regardless.”
