World heavyweight champion Tyson Fury thinks a unification bout between himself and Deontay Wilder would be the biggest fight in "100 years". The 27-year-old Brit could face the outspoken American later in 2016 and Fury thinks the fight would rival any contest staged over the past century.
Fury won the WBA, WBO and IBO belts when he recorded an against-the-odds victory against Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015, while Wilder is the reigning WBC champion. According to Fury, a fight between the giant heavyweights would breathe new life back into the division.
"It reignites the heavyweight division," he told Talksport. "It will be the biggest fight in over 100 years in heavyweight boxing. When was the last time you got two undefeated giants fighting each other? One from the United Kingdom, one from the United States, both very vocal, both handsome, both young and both undefeated. I'm 27 years old now, I'm undisputed champion of the world in my eyes.
"What more can I win? Like my dad said, if I win another 50 fights from now on, I will never accomplish what I did on 28th November in Dusseldorf. A man doesn't come more confident than Tyson Fury. I don't know how much more confident I can get."
Meanwhile, Fury also revealed he will happily return to Germany to fight his much-anticipated rematch against Klitschko, even though he dreams of facing the Ukrainian at Old Trafford, the home of Manchester United.
"I am hoping it's ASAP," he said of their second fight. "I don't care where, if I have to go to Germany again, OK. I'd prefer it to be in the UK because I want to the lions' den for him, I'd expect the favour returned.
"My dream is to fight at Old Trafford. I've been going there from being a little kid and I always said I dreamed of fighting at the [Manchester] United football ground. If I can't fight there, then Wembley would be acceptable. If not Wembley then Cardiff. If not Cardiff then Stockport County, who knows – anywhere in the UK."
