Fury wants re­match at Man United’s Old Traf­ford ground

Cyprus Today - - SPORT -

BRI­TAIN’S Tyson Fury says he wants his WBC heavy­weight re­match with Deon­tay Wilder to take place at Manch­ester United’s Old Traf­ford ground.

Fury, 30, was awarded a con­tro­ver­sial draw af­ter his bout with cham­pion Wilder in Los An­ge­les last Satur­day.

The Manch­ester-born fighter, who watched United’s Pre­mier League match against Ar­se­nal on Wed­nes­day evening, said he is eye­ing up a UK venue next.

“Frank War­ren said Ar­se­nal but I said ‘no, let’s have it at Old Traf­ford’.”

Wear­ing a Manch­ester United scarf, Fury told BT Sport dur­ing half-time of the match that the fight would “hope­fully be in the sum­mer”.

And when asked about the pos­si­ble re­sult for Jose Mour­inho’s side, he joked: “I don’t like draws, I only like wins.”

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

Fury said he had “never seen a worse de­ci­sion in my life” and de­scribed it as a “gift” for his op­po­nent. In an In­sta­gram post in re­sponse, Wilder, 33, said: “You saw the best Fury but you did not get the best Wilder and I still man­aged to get the job done.”
