Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder 3 could take place at Manchester United’s stadium Old Trafford, according to the Gypsy King’s promoter Frank Warren. The trilogy bout is expected to take place this summer.
Fury dispatched of Wilder with ease last Saturday to win the WBC heavyweight world title and the Ring Magazine belt.
But Wilder has already confirmed that he’s looking to exercise his optional rematch clause.
The third fight would have to take place by July 18, with an official date and venue to be decided upon signing of the contract.
But Fury’s promoter Warren wants the bout to be his client’s Manchester homecoming, with the hope that it could take place at Old Trafford.
“Shelly Finkel rang me the morning after the fight to tell me they would probably invoke the immediate rematch,” he told the Metro.
“If that is the case, I think we’ve got to do the fight in the UK.

“Have it as Tyson’s homecoming.
“He deserves the chance to fight as a WBC world champion in front of his home fans.
“I’d love to do it in Manchester at Old Trafford. That’s always been a dream of Tyson’s.”
But Warren also revealed that Fury is keen on an undisputed heavyweight clash with Anthony Joshua.

Joshua holds the WBO, WBA and IBF titles and a fight with Fury would be the biggest in British boxing history.
“Directly after the fight Tyson said he’d love to do the unification fight with Anthony Joshua,” Warren said.
“That’s his next target. He wants to unify the belts, but he’s prepared and happy to fight Wilder again.
“Everyone wants to see Fury vs Joshua. It’s an easy fight to make if it’s a 50/50 split.
“When is the next time we’ll have two British heavyweights holding all the belts between them?”
Wilder has come out since his loss to Fury and excused his lacklustre performance by saying his ring-walk costume was too heavy.
