Tyson Fury says he’s”prepared for war” with Deontay Wilder at February despite concerns the intense cuts suffered in his eponymous triumph over Otto Wallin will delay their bout.
Talking to BBC Sport as he had been ushered through the airport at Las Vegas on Sunday, the 31-year British fighter said”only over 40 stitches” were needed for 2 reductions suffered against Wallin on Saturday.
“I went into the hospital, had a couple of stitches, went home and had an early night,” he said.
“Then I have up, gone into the casino, won five grand, had a few beers and now I’m likely to have a couple more beers.”
Fury lace and he stopped for photos with fans who paid praise to him that while his group were keen to catch him through security at McCarran International Airport.
The Manchester-born fighter fought for over nine rounds while trimming in the T-Mobile Arena and obtained another cut after in the struggle.
If Fury does not heal the harm prompted promoter Frank Warren to say a projected 22 February rematch with WBC world champion Wilder may be delayed.
Asked about a delay, Fury said:”I am prepared for war. I believe it was over 40 stitches inside and outside with the cuts.
“Listen I am all perfect. It is boxing. You can’t go swimming and never get wet. It is the fight game.”
Fury’s promoters at the US have since confirmed he’d 47 stitches in most after the bout, in which Wallin took Fury to 12 rounds.
Throughout the struggle, Fury accommodated in his fifth battle since returning to the sport back.
Asked if such a test would further improve him prior to any Wilder assembly, he replied:”100% – 12 rounds would bring me on to the next battle.
“I believed it was hard. He is a tough, durable man Wallin.
“We put on a fantastic show for its Mexican fans and we got a large audience, I was quite amazed.”
