They've shared a boxing ring three times, and now Tyson Fury wants to share a house with his fighting foe Deontay Wilder.

The Gypsy King has revealed he has invited the American and his family to spend the Christmas holidays at a house they have booked for the festive period.

Morecambe is usually home to the Fury family, but they have chosen to cross the pond to spend Christmas at a rented home in Florida.

And the 33-year-old appears keen to share it with the Wilder family, after three goes at trying his best to knock the Bronze Bomber out – he succeeded on the second and third attempts.

The most recent of those came in October, where the Briton survived several knock downs in an exhausting slugfest to eventually down Wilder for the final time in the 11th round.

Their relationship through all that has been far from friendly, with neither fighter shying away from a war of words to go alongside their physical battles.

But the Briton seems keen to bury the hatchet and enjoy the festivities together.

"It's a huge place with an enormous swimming pool," Fury told MailOnline.

"Room for all and I've told Deontay we're right handy for Disney World."

Fury's bragging about the size of his rented pad may have been to address any concerns Wilder might have had about their two massive families sharing a space.

Tyson and wife Paris have six children, but even their family is dwarfed by the American's – Wilder has eight sprogs of his own.

While Wilder is reportedly considering retirement after his trilogy defeat, Fury is set to step into the ring again in March.

It will not be against the WBC mandatory challenger, however, as Dillian Whyte is currently locked in a dispute with the body and is not expected to be able to fight for the next few months.

Fury's promoter Frank Warren is keen for his fighter to not by ring rusty by the time a proper challenge comes around, and so their camp is working to find an opponent to face in March.

Whoever it will be would most likely not be in contention to take Fury's belt, though, as the Briton will not be keen to lay his belt on the line until Whyte's dispute is resolved.

"He can’t be inactive because of the problems caused by this arbitration between the WBC and Whyte," Warren told iFL TV.

"We have got to sort out an opponent first before we can move further forward. I‘m not going to go into that because we have got to get things done first.

"But we are working quite hard on it an there are about four in the frame and we will make a decision on that, subject to their availability too."
