Tyson Fury has confirmed he wants to fight Deontay Wilder at Old Trafford in the summer of 2019.

The ‘Gypsy King’ was controversially denied the chance to bring home the WBC heavyweight title after his clash at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, with the fight somehow being scored a draw.

Despite dominating much of the fight, Fury was knocked down twice by the ‘Bronze Bomber’. However, he showed no signs of ring rust after his extended absence from the ring and immediately called for a second crack at the American.

The Brit returned to home soil in time for Manchester united’s clash with Arsenal, with reports suggesting he was looking to scout Old Trafford as a potential rematch venue.

And, speaking to BT Sports at half time, the 30-year-old confirmed he wanted a blockbuster showdown with Wilder for the belt.

“Of course, but I’m not going to go on about it forever,” Fury replied when asked if he felt cheated.

“Life goes on, I got robbed blind in America and the world knows it. But we have got to go on and continue to the next fight.”

Promoter Frank Warren revealed in his post-fight press conference he would explore the possibility of holding the fight at either Wembley or the Emirates stadium.

However, Mancunian Fury had only one destination in mind for another epic clash.

The Brit continued: “He [Frank Warren] said ‘Arsenal’ and I said ‘No, let’s have it at Old Trafford.


“Hopefully we can have it here in the summer.”

One other man in the equation is Anthony Joshua, who holds the remaining titles in the division.

However, Barry Hearn told talkSPORT the Olympic gold medallist would be actively pursuing a fight with Wilder himself, but would not shirk away from a domestic ding-dong with Fury either.
