Watch: Tyson Fury Rocks Up To Old Trafford And Calls For Rematch To Take Place There

Fresh from his controversial draw last weekend, British heavyweight Tyson Fury attended the Premier League match between Manchester United and Arsenal at Old Trafford tonight.

Fury fought Deontay Wilder in the WBC world heavyweight title in Las Angeles last weekend in an entertaining bout. Speaking to BT Sport at tonight's game, Fury explained: "I got robbed blind in America, the world knows it."

When asked about the possibility of a rematch in his home city of Manchester, Fury indicated he was very much in favour of that prospect.

I said (that) to Frank Warren. He said Arsenal, I said no. Let's have it at Old Trafford. Hopefully, we can have it here in the summer.

On Monday, Fury's promoter Frank Warren indicated he was in favour of doing a deal with Eddie Hearn to set up a blockbuster fight against Anthony Joshua "the top Brit fighting the top Brit."

However, Wilder did take to Instagram to state "I can't wait for Wilder Fury 2."

Thanks to the city of #LosAngeles @staplescenterla @showtimeboxing and all the fans around the world that supported this David vs Goliath fight. It was an amazing fight and I wanted nothing but greatness to come from this. The fight lived up to the hype more than ever. When you put the best against the best, exciting things happens. I take nothing away from this fight but we won this fight. To beat the champion you must dominate the champ and to me I was the more aggressive fighter and landed the more affective punches. You saw the best #fury but you did not get the best #Wilder and I still managed to get the job done. This event brought more pressure than I expected, I just wanted the best for Boxing Here in America and Boxing in General In which lead me to get overly anxious to knock his head off so I abandoned the game plan. Did the count start 3-4 sec too late or Was the count too long is the question many Are asking and debating about. The ref #JackReiss is an amazing ref in which I’ve had the pleasure to work with on several occasions and he did a great job and at the end of the day #Boxing wins the #Fans are the real winner and I can’t wait for #WilderFury2 To end the controversial talk around the world once and for all!! Love, Love, love to all my fans! Blessings and see you guys again soon -Champ #BombZquad #AndStill @staplescenterla @showtimeboxing @premierboxing
