Manchester United fan Tyson Fury – who has not fought in the UK since 2018 – is reportedly looking to fight in a British stadium after his win over Deontay Wilder, according to promoter Frank Warren
World heavyweight champion and Manchester United fan Tyson Fury is eyeing a spectacular bout at Old Trafford after defeating Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas on Saturday night. Fury defeated Wilder to retain his WBC title at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
The highly-anticipated third bout between the pair lived up to the billing and will go down as one of the great heavyweight fights in modern boxing history.
Fury was in the driving seat early, particularly after he knocked Wilder down in round three.
Wilder – who reportedly broke his hand in the loss – impressively struck back in round four as he knocked Fury twice to the canvas, critically striking the Brit when he was struggling to stand.
However, the Gypsy King got to his feet and responded excellently to seize control of the fight in the latter rounds.
His dominance ensured that it was his fight to lose and after Wilder picked himself up from a 10th-round knockdown, Fury delivered the killer blow with a crushing 11th round knockout strike.
The WBC have ordered Fury to fight the winner between mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte and Otto Wallin, who clash later this month.
Fury’s promoter Frank Warren claimed the Brit can headline events at every stadium in England, and Manchester United fan Fury has previously admitted it is his ‘dream’ to fight at Old Trafford.
“I would love that homecoming more than anything, the British fans and everything,” Warren said.
“Can you imagine it? Tyson sells out any stadium in Britain, easy.
“The fans will come out for him. He deserves that hero’s welcome now.”
Warren has been in the industry for over four decades and he believes his 33-year-old client put on one of the great fights in the sport’s history.
The 69-year-old promoter insisted Fury’s win in Las Vegas on Saturday was the greatest live event he has seen – and he fears British rival Anthony Joshua will be too afraid to face the Manchester-born champion.
“Fury is the best heavyweight of his generation and he is up there with all of them,” Warren admitted.
“Look at his size and chin and his heart to. “Brinkwire Summary News”.
