Deontay Wilder Hints At New Theory Over Rumours That Tyson Fury's Cut Reopened
Deontay Wilder has developed an interesting theory surrounding Tyson Fury's cut after claiming that it reopened in sparring.
Fury, 31, suffered a horrific cut to his right eye during a hard-fought victory against Otto Wallin last September.
And the 'Gypsy King' received a whopping 47 stitches to seal up the wound and has since admitted that the cut reopening is one of his biggest concerns for the Wilder fight.
However, rumours have started to make the rounds that Fury's cut opened up in his training camp.
Wilder has now claimed that the wound "reopened in sparring" and believes that it played an important part in his theory.
The 34-year-old WBC champ believes that the cut reopening is the reason why Fury was "wearing the hoodie and the shades at the press conference."
Wilder explained in an Instagram Q&A: "The cut that Fury played in his last fight is going to play a big factor in this fight.
"I heard it got reopened in sparring, that's why he was wearing the hoodie and the shades at the press conference.
"If I cut that thing open again, it's going to be a mess.
"We're going to see what happens after that but hopefully it don't open because I don't want the fight to stop.

"I want people to get their full view and money's worth for this fight.
"I wanna knock him out on the canvas and we'll see what he does when he hits the canvas this time, what his body does because we know we've seen his eyes rolling in that back of his head, we've seen his veins pulsing from his neck and we've seen his body stretched out on the canvas like a murder scene, baby.
"I started blowing kisses and everything, this big bird, this big momma rose from the dead.
"But I told him I was going to baptise him and he was going to go timber and I baptised him and everybody who knows about a baptism, they always rise back up.
"This time around, it ain't gonna be that."
Wilder has continued to reiterate that his plan will be to target Fury's wound and promised that it is "going to open right back up."
Fury will challenge Wilder for the WBC championship on Saturday in Las Vegas.
