Two-time world heavyweight boxing champion, Tyson Fury who is currently preparing to face Deontay Wilder again in Las Vegas, has revealed that he would one day like to fight in Manchester - while also sending a message to Manchester United icon, Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo is considered to be one of the greatest players in United's history and an icon among the Old Trafford faithful, though the boxing star has joked that the city of Manchester cannot cope with two superstars.

"I have two fights left [in the USA], but I'd love to bring a world title fight back to Manchester. 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," he said as per Marca, who quote the Sun.

"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."

It will be interesting to see how the five-time Ballon d'Or responds to the Gypsy King considering that the Portugal superstar is the most popular athlete in the world across all social media platforms.
