Tyson Fury Says He Feels "Fantastic" After Removing 48 Stitches From His Eye
Tyson Fury insists he feels "fantastic" after removing 47 stitches from his eye.
Fury sustained a gruesome cut above his eye during his heavyweight bout against Wallin in Las Vegas, but the self-proclaimed 'Gypsy King' is healing quickly ahead of his rematch with Deontay Wilder.
Speaking on Instagram, the 31-year-old updated fans of his recovery while revealing a picture of his face for the first time since the stitches were removed.
"I feel absolutely fantastic. The cut is healing very well as I'm three quarter vampire," he said, sporting a small plaster on his eyelid.
"I don't remember feeling better to be fair. Very happy, very healthy and very well.
"Spreading positivity as always, everybody who's down and needs that kick today, needs that bit of get up and go, get yourself up, get on the road, go to the gym, do whatever makes you feel good.
"As long as it's positive. Crack on with your job and do it.
"Saying I'm a gym junkie, I suppose I am a gym junkie, I love the gym, I love the feeling you get when you've had a good workout.
"Never give up on your dreams. Always keep moving forward, stay healthy, stay strong, stay blessed."
Fury has now recorded back-to-back victories following his controversial draw with Wilder, who plans to target the Brit's eye when they meet again in February.
"He's very vulnerable. When he gets hit on the chin, it's a wrap," the undefeated American said.
"Otto Wallin was doing a great job up to that point, especially when he cut him over the eye. I was telling, I thought he was going to get a stoppage. It looked like it was three inches wide and two inches deep.
"That's the worst cut besides the Klitschko and Lennox fight. That was the worst cut I've seen in my life.
"I can't wait. I hope they heal well, and I can't wait to see Mr Fury.
"That's not my problem if he's ready or not. He signed the contract. That's his problem. He better get ready.
"No matter what he does, when he fights me, it's [the cut] is going to open right back up.
"I'm going to pop it right back open. He can get plastic surgery, duck tape or staples, Super Glu or Hot Glu, Cement Glu. S**t, he can go get some of that Flex Glu. It ain't even going to matter."
If Wilder beats Luis Ortiz in November, he's set to defend his WBC heavyweight title against Fury in February 2020.
