Tyson Fury admitted he was delighted Cristiano Ronaldo was back at Manchester United but sent the Portuguese superstar a warning.
Fury is a huge United fan and has been seen at Old Trafford on several occasions over the years.
But luckily for Ronaldo, geography means his return to the club he left in 2009 is suitable for the WBC champion.
“I’m really happy Ronaldo is back at Old Trafford – but this town isn’t big enough for both of us,” he joked in an interview with The Sun.
“If I lived in Manchester it would be a problem. But I’m an hour on the highway in Morecambe so it’s a lot of distance.
The Gypsy King proved to be one of the greatest boxers of his generation as he beat Deontay Wilder in their trilogy fight to retain his WBC heavyweight title.
The 33-year-old remains undefeated and made himself loved even more by British boxing fans with the instant classic against Wilder.
His last five fights have all been in America, but revealed his dream of holding a world title fight against beloved Manchester United.
“I have two fights left here [in Vegas] but I would 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 [Chris] Eubank versus [Nigel] Benn in 1993 [it finished as a draw] and it was huge.
What comes next for the “Gypsy King” is still unknown.
The WBC has ruled he will have 30 days to agree to an undisputed unification fight with Anthony Joshua conqueror Oleksandr Usyk.
If that can’t be done – as expected because AJ triggered his clause for a rematch with Usyk – then Fury will be doomed to defend against Dillian Whyte’s winner against Otto Wallin on October 30.
“He’s got to go get Usyk or nothing,” John Fury told White and Jordan on talkSPORT.
“It’s Usyk next, or nothing.
“I wouldn’t bother with the others, they’re not in Tyson’s class.
“Would Dillian Whyte deal with Deontay Wilder?”
“No. So why would they want to put him with my son and knock him out?
“Tyson can’t stand up for this kind of fight. For me, I told him, Usyk or don’t worry.
