Tyson Fury Wants Deontay Wilder Rematch At Old Trafford

Manchester United's Old Trafford could host a rematch between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder.

Fury put up an almighty battle against Wilder overnight for the WBC heavyweight crown in Los Angeles with many good judges suggesting he was hard done by not to win.

Instead, it ended in a draw and thoughts immediately turned to a rematch.

The judges' decision of a split draw angered Fury's fans, many of whom had travelled from the UK to cheer him on. Fury somehow managed to get up off the canvas in the dying moments of the bout to deny Wilder a knockout win.

Frank Warren told the post-fight press conference: "From my perspective, I'd love to have a rematch and I'd like to see it in the UK. We could fill a football stadium up, maybe Wembley or Arsenal or any one of those big stadiums."

"Old Trafford, come on Frank!" interrupted Manchester-born Fury.

Warren added: "I thought Tyson won it and won it well, whatever the result of the fight. It was a fight that you'd want to see again, irrespective of whether it was a draw or whoever won the fight. It's one of those fights that you want to see again and we want to do it again but we want it in the UK. That's where the next one should be.

"Tyson came here to Los Angeles, he's travelled to Germany to Wladimir Klitschko's back yard. Now let's let him have some home turf because on home turf, he would have won that fight."
