Fury Feels Wilder Needs To Redeem Himself

Tyson Fury just wants to fight, preferably against Deontay Wilder, but the former unified world heavyweight champion is itching for a return to the ring.

“Hopefully I get the fight with Deontay Wilder, in America or in England,” Fury said during an interview with BT Sport. “I’m not really bothered by where it is. It could be in Australia or Antarctica, it wouldn’t be a problem to me. Wherever the fight would be, I’ll go.”

Negotiations have begun between Deontay Wilder’s team and the Frank Warren lead team for Fury, and the “Gypsy King” claims that he has a backup plan in-case negotiations take too long.

“On a rematch with Wilder, it’s down to them,” Fury told BT Sport. “If they want the fight, they want it. If not, it’s no big deal to me.

“They’re the ones who have to redeem themselves not me. I’ve done everything I should’ve done. I don’t need to redeem myself, a second chance at glory. I’m the lineal heavyweight champion. I don’t need a belt, an alphabet title.”

“I’d like a homecoming fight in April, whether Manchester or somewhere in the United Kingdom,” Fury notes of his future plans.. “Then I’d like to fight Wilder. If not that, then I’ll just fight Wilder.”
