Fury, who is a Manchester United supporter said his dream was to headline a show at Old Trafford informing Portuguese soccer star, Cristiano Ronaldo, there is only room for one superstar in the city.
“I have two fights left out here but I’d love to bring a world title fight back to Manchester,” he 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, who has not hidden his admiration as a huge fan of Ronaldo, labelled him ‘the GOAT’ in response to the 36-year-old picking up the Player of the Month award for his first back in English football.
