Video: Tyson Fury wants Deontay Wilder rematch at Old Trafford

Man Utd fan Fury was at the Theatre of Dreams for the clash against Arsenal

British boxer Tyson Fury watched on as Manchester United drew 2-2 with Arsenal last night and he revealed that he wants a rematch against Deontay Wilder to be held at Old Trafford next summer.

Fury and Wilder’s WBC heavyweight title clash ended in a controversial draw in Los Angeles last weekend and both fighters have since said they want a second bout.

Despite being knocked down twice by the American in LA, many pundits and boxing fans believed that Fury won the title fight against the “Bronze Bomber”.

While plans for a rematch are yet to be confirmed the “Gypsy King” has told his promoter Frank Warren that he wants the fight at the “Theatre of Dreams”.

Speaking to BT Sport during half-time of the Premier League clash last night, United fan Fury said: “I said to Frank Warren, he said ‘Arsenal’ but I said ‘No, let’s have it at Old Trafford!’ Hopefully we can have it here in the summer.”

Discussing the draw against Wilder the 30-year-old added: “I’m not going to go on about it forever, life goes on. I got robbed blind in America and the world knows it. But I’m going to go on - continue to the next fight. I don’t like draws - I only like wins.”

United’s Old Trafford stadium has a capacity of 74,994 and has held boxing before. In October 1993 Chris Eubank drew with Nigel Benn in a super-middleweight unification clash in front of more than 42,000 fans, the Manchester Evening News reports.
