Tyson Fury has revealed his rematch with Deontay Wilder is likely to happen next summer and he wants Old Trafford to be the venue.
Wilder and Fury have begun talks over an immediate rematch after their pulsating encounter last weekend ended in a draw.
The scorecards caused major controversy after Fury survived a final round knockdown, only to be denied a win by the judges.
Fury and Wilder have both said they want a rematch, and the British heavyweight made his first public appearance in the UK since his impressive outing in Los Angeles.
The 30-year-old attended Manchester United’s 2-2 draw with Arsenal at Old Trafford, and Fury claims he wants to return to the ‘Theatre of Dreams’ to fight Wilder.
He said: “‘Frank Warren said Arsenal, but I said ‘no, let’s have it at Old Trafford’.”
Fury also confirmed they are aiming to hold the rematch in the summer of 2019.
Frank Warren, Fury’s promoter, is hoping to convince the WBC to order the immediate rematch, which would effectively force Wilder to come to terms.
It is unclear if the rematch will be in America or the UK, but Wilder has already suggested Las Vegas as the perfect location.

The location of the second fight may be a serious sticking point in talks, as Wilder benefitted massively from home advantage.
The WBC have rejected criticism of their referees’ scoring, insisting their officials were of ‘unquestionable integrity and honourability’.
