Tyson Fury Wants Deontay Wilder Rematch at Old Trafford

Tyson Fury has hinted he would like a potential rematch with Deontay Wilder to take place at Old Trafford.

The 30-year-old drew with Wilder in Los Angeles on Saturday in his bid to win the WBC heavyweight title from the American.

Manchester-born Fury was in attendance at Old Trafford as Manchester United drew 2-2 with Arsenal on Wednesday in the Premier League.

Speaking to BT Sport, he said: “Frank Warren (his promoter) said Arsenal but I said ‘No, let’s have it at Old Trafford’. Hopefully we can have it here in the summer.”

Fury was denied one of the greatest comebacks in boxing history after scores of 115-111, 112-114 and 113-113 over the weekend.

He impressively out-boxed the champion, although Wilder retained the title having knocked the Briton down in the ninth round, and again in the 12th.

IN OTHER NEWS:  Tyson Fury’s dramatic comeback in his WBC heavyweight title fight with Deontay Wilder is 3/1 with Betway to be voted the sporting moment of the year at SPOTY 2018.

Fury almost completed a remarkable comeback to the ring, but had to settle for a draw against the WBC champion, and the Gypsy King’s return is being backed for the inaugural award.

England’s famous penalty shootout win over Colombia at the World Cup is the 5/4 favourite with the leading online bookmaker, while the England netball team’s winning gold medal at the Commonwealth Games also looks in contention at 5/2.

Betway’s Alan Alger said: “It’s been another extraordinary year of sport with so many fantastic moments, but there weren’t many better than Tyson Fury’s return to the ring. 

“The Gypsy King was superb in his WBC world heavyweight title fight with Deontay Wilder and for many was hugely unlucky not to take home the belt. It’s a performance which has seen him backed at 3/1 to win the inaugural SPOTY moment of the year.

“Gareth Southgate masterminded England’s run to the semi-finals of the World Cup and his side’s penalty shootout win over Colombia in the last-16 heads the betting at 5/4.”

[QUOTE=Adamsc151;19331065]Yes, that would be awesomely cringe-worthy. Although, for best effect they should do Hall & Oates in full 80's gear.[/QUOTE] That would be good. Maybe Manny could sit on Tyson's lap for the gig as well. :rofl:
