Tyson Fury, the new heavyweight world-champion, fancies a fight in Croke Park
A guaranteed sell-out.
Tyson Fury upset the odds last weekend by beating longtime heavyweight world-champion Wladimir Klitschko on a decision after the pair went the full 12 rounds together.
Fury, who was raised in Manchester, is of Irish heritage through both of his grandparents - and today expressed his desire to have a fight in front of an Irish crowd in Dublin's historic Croke Park.
Speaking to RTÉ Radio today, Fury said:
"I've always said I'd like to fight in Croke Park. Maybe that can be a reality one day. I've always said there's a couple of venues that I want to box in in the world.
One of them is Madison Square Garden, I've done that one. One of them is Old Trafford, I haven't done that one. The other one is Croke Park. That's the three venues I want to box in."
Well, if Conor McGregor's recent quotes are anything to go by, we'll be seeing Fury fight in Croker before we see McGregor.
