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 on 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.”
