Tyson Fury’s Old Trafford fight dreams crushed as Warren speaks out on bout

Tyson Fury's dream of fighting at Old Trafford appears to have been shot down by his promoter Frank Warren – for now at least.

Manchester United fan Fury is eyeing his next fight after retaining his WBC heavyweight title with a epic victory over Deontay Wilder in their trilogy clash.

The self-styled Gypsy King wanted it to be at the Theatre of Dreams, having fought his last five fights in the United States.

And Fury even warned Cristiano Ronaldo he would eclipse him as the biggest sporting superstar in Manchester.

But Warren has poured cold water on the idea of a first boxing match at Old Trafford since 1993 – unless Fury changes his plans on when he wants to fight.

"Well look, the only problem is he wants to fight in February or March," Warren told his promotional company's YouTube channel.

"The answer's going to be no isn't it because of the weather and football season. Who knows, in the summer it could be the case. I'll take him down the Arsenal, but we'll see!"

After defeating Wilder with an 11th-round knockout in Las Vegas, Manchester-born Fury said it had "always been a dream" to fight at Old Trafford.

“I have two fights left out here but I’d love to bring a world title fight back to Manchester,” Fury told The Sun.

“It has always been a dream of mine to fight at Old Trafford.

“The last fight there was Eubank versus Benn in 1993 and that was massive. I’m really happy Ronaldo’s back at Old Trafford – but this town ain’t big enough for the both of us!

“If I lived in Manchester it would be a problem. But I’m an hour up the motorway in Morecambe so he’s got plenty of distance.”

Fury is expected to face Dillian Whyte next, if his fellow Brit beats Otto Wallin later this month.

But the 33-year-old cast doubt on whether he would even fight again as he told The Telegraph: "I’m not thinking about boxing right now.

"I don’t know how many fights I’ve got left, I don’t know if I need to fight anymore. I don’t know what the future holds."

But Warren said Fury has "plenty of time" to think about his future.

"When I spoke to him a couple of times now I told him to go home and rest up with the family. He doesn't need me to tell him that," said Warren.

"That's what he's going to do. He's had a new baby, there was a lot of problems during training with his baby daughter Athena. She was in ICU twice, so you can imagine the problems and worry that was for him and Paris.

"Now they want to spend some time together as a family, see his kids. He's been training solidly for 20 months and nothing happened. So plenty of time to talk about that."
