Manchester United fan Tyson Fury wants his WBC heavyweight rematch v Deontay Wilder to not only take place in the U.K but at his team’s home stadium, Old Trafford. Fury, who was born in Wythenshawe in Manchester, has followed the Red Devils for his whole life and was on the pitch at half-time to talk about the potential rematch.
Talking to BT Sport he said: "Frank Warren said Arsenal but I said 'no, let's have it at Old Trafford. Hopefully we can have it here in the summer'".
When asked if he was burning with a sense of injustice he responded: “Of course but I’m not gonna go on about it forever, you know, life goes on. I got robbed blind in America, the world knows it but we’re gonna go on, continue to the next fight.
"They have been on the ropes but we need a win here to get us back off the ropes, land a good right hand and we’ll be doing alright.
“I don't like draws, I only like wins."
Fury of course was robbed of a win against Deontay Wilder as Alejandro Rochin judged the fight in Deontay Wilder’s favour scoring the bout 115-111 in the American’s favour. One other judge judged it a 113-113 draw whilst the final judge gave it 114-112 in Fury’s favour.
Incredibly Rochin gave Wilder the first four rounds, despite to everyone else it seemed Fury had won the first four rounds relatively comfortably. This makes the rematch a must-watch fight and we could see a packed Old Trafford cheering both men on.
