Fury vs McGregor! Who will fight at Croke Park first?
Conor McGregor came to the UFC, popularized the Irish combat sports scene and promised a huge fighting sports spectacle at Dublin's Croke Park Stadium. However, last weekend Ireland got another contender with the same dream.
Last Saturday Tyson Fury defeated Wladimir Klitschko and became the new heavyweight boxing champ. According to his contract, Klitschko had the right to ask for the rematch and Fury revealed where he's like it to happen.
"I don't know if he [Klitschko] is going to take the rematch," Fury said. "There is a contract to say he is entitled to a rematch. 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."
Having in mind that Fury is also interested in Old Trafford, McGregor still has a change to fight at the Croke first if Aldo does not postpone the match again.
