Tyson Fury Says He Had 40 Stitches And A Few Beers After Wallin Fight

Tyson Fury Says He Had 40 Stitches And A Few Beers After Wallin Fight

On Saturday night, Tyson Fury survived a huge scare to defeat Otto Wallin in Las Vegas.

The Gypsy King sustained a nasty gash above his eye, with streaming blood affecting his vision. But the 31-year-old battled on, ultimately claiming his 29th professional win following a unanimous decision from the judges after the 12th round.

However, while the fight was won, Fury was in urgent need of medical attention for the gaping wound on his face. Speaking to journalists at Las Vegas airport, he said he had more than 40 stitches... as well as a 'few beers', 'a few more beers' and a 'five grand' win at the casino.

According to The Sun, he said: "I went to the hospital, had a few stitches, went home and had an early night.

"Then I've got up, gone to the casino, won five grand, had a few beers and now I'm going to have a few more beers.

"I'm ready for war. I think it was just over 40 stitches inside and out with both the cuts. Listen I'm alright. It's boxing. You can't go swimming and not get wet. It's the fight game."

Fury is due to have a rematch with Deontay Wilder on 22 February, and there were some fears this match may be put back as a result of his injuries. However, Fury seemed to brush this off - but said he would be up for another fight before then.

He said: "100 percent - 12 rounds will bring me on to the next fight.

"I thought it was tough. He's a tough, durable guy Wallin. We put on a good show for the Mexican fans and we got a massive audience, I was very surprised."

Fury wore Mexican colours on Saturday to celebrate their independence weekend, even sporting a sombrero as he entered the ring.


Speaking after the fight, he said: "I got cut early on but I am a gypsy worrier and this is Mexican independence day - viva Mexico.

"It's all heart and determination. If I can keep going I will and I was the better man tonight.

"It was a good performance. I got 12 rounds in against a tough Swede. Deontay Wilder, I want you next.

"The big dosser is next on February 22. I'll let the cut heal and get some time with my family."
