Tyson Fury Says He Wants Trilogy Fight At 70,000 Seater Stadium

Tyson Fury Says He Wants Trilogy Fight At 70,000 Seater Stadium

Tyson Fury has called for a third fight with Deontay Wilder to take place in the Las Vegas Raiders stadium, which can be expanded to having a 72,000 seater capacity.

On Saturday night Fury decimated Wilder for seven rounds to put the first loss on the American's professional record and take the WBC heavyweight title from the Bronze Bomber.

The pair have a rematch clause which will set up the trilogy fight between them and Fury expects his rival to invoke it, and has called for it to take place in the Allegiant Stadium. "I expect he will want a rematch and I will have that," Fury told BT Sport's Steve Bunce.

"Great fights should have trilogies. And I want it here, just across the road, at the Raiders Stadium outdoors in front of 70,000."

Allegiant Stadium isn't set to open till July this year and will play host to NFL side Las Vegas Raiders, with the franchise relocating from Oakland this year, and holds 65,000 for football which can be expanded to 72,000.

Fury claimed before the fight he wouldn't let the decision go to the judges, after feeling he'd been let down by them in the first fight 14 months ago, and said he would knock out Wilder in the second round.

The Bronze Bomber mocked the claims, and it did take the Gypsy King five extra rounds, saying the Brit had 'pillow hands.'

"I had my mental problems and issues and I was out of the ring three years. But he was fighting the real Gypsy King this time.

"...I told everyone the Gypsy King has returned to his throne. Last fight I was under weight and over trained. This time, how about pillow fists eh?

"I told Deontay I am going for a knock out. Everyone said 'oh stick to your boxing'.

"I was knocking a 250 bag off his hooks every day, not padding around. Deontay is a hell of performer, dynamite in his fists and he will always be dangerous."
