Deontay Wilder Reacts To Tyson Fury's Nasty Cut Sustained In Otto Wallin Fight
Deontay Wilder believes Tyson Fury's cut was the worst he's seen since Vitali Klitschko's and he plans to target the 'Gypsy King's damaged eyebrow when they rematch in February.
Fury needed 47 stitches to heal the gaping wound above his eyelid. Wallin opened him up in the third round though the undefeated Brit survived the early scare by beating the Swede on points.
His Top Rank promoter Bob Arum and UK promoter Frank Warren have expressed concerns regarding Fury's cut, but the 31-year-old plans to honour his contract and face Wilder early next year.
And the American champion is eager to run it back with the "vulnerable" Fury.
"He's very vulnerable. When he gets hit on the chin, it's a wrap," he 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.
