British heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury believes the injury to his face will heal quickly. According to him, the wounds under his eyes will heal before the rematch against Deontay Wilder in February 2020.
Gypsy King, nicknamed Fury, suffered severe injuries over his right eye after receiving a hard left-hand blow from Swedish heavyweight boxer Otto Wallin at T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas, Saturday (09/14/2019) evening local time or Sunday (09/15/2019) noon CST. Fury needs 47 stitches to close the wound.
There are fears the injury will not recover in time for a rematch against Wilder.
Promoter Frank Warren said Fury couldn’t fight Wilder unless he was 100% fit. However, Wednesday (09/25/2019), Fury issued a positive statement about the development of his recovery.
“I just came out of the gym. I feel amazing,” Fury said in his official Instagram account.
“The wound healed well because I am 3/4 of a vampire. Never feel better to be fair.
” Very happy, very healthy and very good. Spread the positive as usual. “
As Fury continues his recovery, Wilder will prepare for his rematch against Luiz Ortiz.
The fight will be held at the end of November and the WBC champion is excited to see Fury injured against Wallin.
Wilder was determined to make Fury’s wound when they fight again next year. “No matter what he does, when he fights with me, it (the wound) will reopen,” he said.
“I will open the wound again. He can get plastic surgery, ribbons or ribbons or staples, super glue or hot glue, cement glue. He can get some of that flexible glue. That won’t even be a problem. He is very vulnerable. When he hit his chin, it hurt him.”
