Fury was denied victory over the WBC champion last month, when the three judges scored their heavyweight showdown in Los Angeles a controversial draw.
The two camps are in talks over a lucrative rematch, most likely in America. But Fury wants to be back in the ring in April even if Wilder isn’t in the opposite corner.
Tyson Fury has revealed he wants a homecoming fight in April before facing Deontay Wilder
Fury hopes to secure a rematch with Wilder following their pulsating draw back in December
‘I’d like a homecoming fight in April, maybe in Manchester or somewhere in the UK and then I’d like to fight Wilder again but if not, then just Wilder. And if not Wilder, I’ll just have the homecoming fight,’ he told BT Sport
‘I’m hopefully going to get out in April again, hopefully I’ll get the Wilder rematch. But if not then I’ll be out in April anyway, I’m just going to keep busy. I’m enjoying myself, I’m 30 years old.
‘I think I’ve got another 10 years left in this game as long as I look after myself and I seem to be doing a decent job at that now.’
Fury, who spent more than two years out of the ring amid issues with drugs, drink and depression, capped a remarkable comeback with a stunning performance at the Staples Center.
He twice climbed off the canvas, including in the final round, with the contested scorecards laying the foundations for a second fight.
Though WBA, WBO and IBF champion Anthony Joshua is still looking for an opponent for an April 13 date at Wembley Stadium, Fury is targeting his American rival and says he’ll fight anywhere.
‘I want a rematch with Wilder, if it happens or not it’s down to them. If they want the fight, they want it, if they don’t want it, no problem to me. They’re the ones who have to redeem themselves, not me,’ he said.

‘Hopefully I get a fight with Deontay Wilder in America, in England I’m not really bothered where it is. If it’s in Australia or Antarctica it wouldn’t be a problem for me, wherever the fight is we’ll go.’
Following his draw with Wilder in December, Fury said he hoped to lure the Bronze Bomber to the home of his beloved Manchester United.
But as talks between the camps rumble on, the Gypsy King admits that appears increasingly unlikely.
‘I’d like to get Wilder at Old Trafford but I don’t know how realistic it is. Frank (Warren, his promoter) is working on it now, my lawyer is working on it with their team so I’m sure they’ll come up something good.’
