Fury vs Wilder III fight venue expected to be new Las Vegas NFL stadium

0

Tyson Fury wants a third fight with Deontay Wilder to be staged at the new Las Vegas NFL stadium.

The Oakland Raiders move in the Nevada desert next season and will play at the newly-built Allegiant Stadium.

It will hold 65,000 fans for NFL matches, though for special events like boxing it would be expandable to 72,000.

Fury is expecting a third fight with Wilder given a clause in the pre-fight contracts allowing the American to take up the option of one should he lose.

It will now depend on whether Wilder actually wants to step foot in the ring with Fury once again.

Fury delivered him his first defeat in his career when he stopped the Bronze Bomber in the seventh round of their blockbuster rematch on Saturday night.

Wilder was twice knocked down by Fury and the corner eventually said enough was enough and threw in the towel.

Speaking to BT Sport following the fight, Fury said: “I told everybody with a pair of ears that the Gypsy King would return to the throne.

“My last fight everybody wrote me off. I was under weight and over trained. I’m a destroyer. Not bad for someone with pillow fists.

“I’m a man of my word. I told Wilder, his team, the world. We trained for a knockout, we wasn’t tapping around in that gym.

“I talk like this because I can back it up. People write me off, they look at my fat belly and bald head and think I can’t fight.

“He fought the best Tyson Fury, we’re both in our primes.”

When asked about the third fight, Fury added: “I expect him [Wilder] to ask for the third fight. I know he’s a warrior and I’ll be waiting.”

Wilder was annoyed his corner pulled him out as he wanted to continue.

But it was never going to end any other way as Fury was totally dominating him.

He said: “I’m doing good. Things like this happen.

“The best man won tonight, but my corner threw in the towel and I was ready to go out on my shield.
