Tyson Fury is planning a "sexy" ringwalk if his rematch with Wladimir Klitschko takes place in the heat of the UAE.
The WBA Super and WBO world heavyweight champion (25-0-KO18) is in talks over the location for his second meeting with Klitschko, whose 11-year reign as divisional kingpin he ended in November with a unanimous points decision.
Germany could host the second bout as it did the first, but Fury appears more interested in alternatives such as the UAE and a famous football stadium.
When asked about UAE's bid to host the occasion, Fury told Sky Sports: "I'd have sun-tan lotion on, speedos on, sunglasses in the backpack. That would be one sexy ringwalk. That could be good. I'd like it.
"I'd like to fight at Old Trafford but I'm not really too bothered. Anywhere in the world, I'll fight Klitschko again. He was no good to me in his own back garden with his own fans, so he's no good to me anywhere in the world."
Fury recently attended Deontay Wilder's WBC title defence against Artur Szpilka in New York, jumping into the ring to confront the American (36-0-KO35) after his ninth-round stoppage victory and demanding a unification fight.
I think he's an awesome fighter and I think it's going to be a very good victory when I beat him. He was troubled and the guy was awkward.
Fury on Wilder
Fury said: "I was very impressed. I think he's an awesome fighter and I think it's going to be a very good victory when I beat him. He was troubled and the guy was awkward. What can I say? He got the job done and I can't wait to fight the guy.
"That's the fight I really want. I want to get through Wladimir and then take out Deontay. I'm not interested in fighting bums to make a few pounds. I want to fight the best in the division.
"It wouldn't be a hard fight to sell. I know that with me and him in the ring there's going to be one thing - a knockout. A million per cent. It could be me or him, whoever lands first with a big punch it's game over. Heavyweight boxing is a unique sport. One punch and it's over."
