Tyson Fury: Gypsy King makes Old Trafford demand to Deontay Wilder after Man Utd showing


The Gypsy King was held to a controversial draw with Wilder when the two clashed for the WBC belt at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Saturday’s fight was scored 115-111 for Wilder, 114-112 for Fury and 113-113, with Alejandro Rochin the judge who had the Bronze Bomber as the winner.

Wilder knocked Fury to the canvas twice but the Brit landed more successful punches and controlled the match.

A rematch is likely, though it is yet to be confirmed.

And Fury, being a Manchester United fan, is keen for any bout to take place at his beloved side’s stadium: Old Trafford.

The Manchester-born fighter made a guest appearance at the club as they take on Arsenal in the Premier League.

And when asked where he wants to take Wilder on, he said: “I said to Frank Warren, he said Arsenal – I said no it has to be Old Trafford, hopefully we can have it here in the summer.

“I got robbed blind in America, the world knows it but we need to go on. Continue to the next one.”

The match was tied 1-1 at the break, and Fury was in a jovial mood when asked what result he would like.

He added: “I do not like draws – I only want wins!”

Anthony Joshua has also been a potential opponent for either Fury or Wilder, and he was full of praise for his compatriot on Tuesday.

He said on Twitter: “What took this fool [Wilder] so long? Like we ain’t been interested?!!

“Anyway well done Fury! They wanted to get you because they assumed you was finished!!

“I’ll give you a fair one when your ready! Either one of you!”
