Tyson Fury is back on British soil after his remarkable draw with Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas last Saturday and is set to attend Manchester United’s clash with Arsenal on Wednesday night. The Brit appeared to be ahead in the fight before he somehow survived a late knockdown to see out the 12th round.
There have been calls for a rematch since Saturday’s fight with Fury wanting to hold it at Old Trafford.
Fury, 30, interrupted Frank Warren during his post-fight press conference after the promoter suggested Wembley or the Emirates could stage the rematch.
“Old Trafford, come on Frank,” suggested the Brit. And he will be in attendance on Wednesday night as United look to get back to winning ways against Arsenal. It is unclear if he will be paraded on the pitch before the game or at half-time, as the likes of David Haye have in recent years.
Meanwhile, United have no plans to bring the rematch to Old Trafford as things stand. Old Trafford has not staged a fight since the rematch between Chris Eubank and Nigel Benn in 1993. March and April have been suggested as potential dates but United are not currently considering the fight with their stadium already hosting massive music concerts this summer.
