Tyson Fury’s co-promoter Frank Warren hopes that the WBC champion’s next fight will be in the UK.

Fury has fought in the US for his last five fights, including his trilogy against Deontay Wilder.

Wilder forced the third match through arbitration but no longer has a claim to take on Fury in an attempt to win back his belt, and Fury could now return to British soil for the first time since 2018, the year before his first fight with the Bronze Bomber.

Wilder was stopped in the 11th round last Saturday, and Fury looks likeliest to meet WBC mandatory Dillian Whyte, assuming comes out unscathed against Swedish heavyweight Otto Wallin on October 30.

While Warren hopes that Anthony Joshua would be the opponent, any all-British clash would make sense for a UK venue and BoxingScene.com reported Warren as saying: “It’d be an ideal world for Anthony Joshua not to go for the rematch so we can just get straight to it.

"No one’s made any decision [on Fury's next fight]. [Fury] needs [to make] a decision after this. There’s no rush. But he’s planned out five fights. He’s a fighting man and lives and breathes boxing. That’s his life.

“I would love that homecoming more than anything for the British fans. Can you imagine it? Tyson sells out any stadium in Britain, easy. The fans will come out for him. He deserves that hero’s homecoming now.”
