    Probably the U.K. given the first was in Wilders country,not that I’m suggesting bias judging for Fury either,just wanna see a winner in front of a massive crowd in London maybe.

    With the controversy of the first fight I think it needs to be in the UK, since even though I don't live in the UK i have a feeling they'd fill any arena to see Wilder-Fury in a re-match, but I could also see having the fight in the UK forcing Joshua's hand. If the rematch does excellent numbers in the UK Joshua would have a hard time justifying not fighting the winner.

    I would love to see the second fight at the Barclays Centre in New York, and then the third fight at Old Trafford in Manchester, England.

    Los Angeles was a rubbish location, even though it was in the US, both sets of fans had to travel. Although Wilder had a sizeable fan base there, Fury's fans were greater in number. I think in New York Wilder's fan base could be much better as it is much nearer his home-state.

    The final bout in the trilogy must be in Manchester, why? because the man who isn't afraid to travel anywhere and beat anyone in their own backyard deserved to have a big, high stakes match at home, especially after travelling for the first 2 matches.

    Fighting at home is a huge advantage, especially when you have a massive fan-bases that is loud, rambunctious, rowdy, voracious and completely insane British fan-base (Fury and AJ both have this). The opponent has an extremely burdensome and challenging task just overcoming the crowd before they can even deal with their opponents, who are boosted and energised by their supporters. Fighter's who can build an large fan-base can make their owns fights a lot more easier by doing this.

    I'd like to see it in the UK, but maybe with encouraging PPV numbers they'd rather try to build on a promising PPV market for the rematch.

    For the sake of this era of heavyweight boxing, this one needs to come to England. Can't have another decision like that and I'm sorry but America obviously stinks of them.

    Bigger stadium filled with more people in the UK too, than it would have had in America

    Probably Vegas because money. I'd like to see it move over to the UK, but Vegas has already been kicked around because of earning potential.

    It doesn't make one bit of difference. Either way Fury has to avoid knockdowns to win. In the US a knockdown will make it much harder to win on the cards while in the UK a knockdown like the one in the 12th likely causes him to lose by stoppage.

    If you want to challenge Aj and his numbers, then where better to do it than in the UK?

    I think it will be us, but it should be the UK, and I think it would make more money and put more pressure for a full unification if done there at this point as well.

    If you want to be fair it should be in the UK but I think it will likely go to Vegas or NY it would be good to see at either the T Mobile in Vegas or the Garden in NY
