Tyson Fury Got 40 Stitches And Then Went To The ‘Casino, Won Five Grand, Had A Few Beers’
Tyson Fury received "just over 40 stitches" on two nasty cuts he picked up in his bout with Otto Wallin and celebrated by hitting the casino, winning some money and boozing it up.
The 'Gypsy King,' 31, survived an early scare against the little-known Swede as he was busted open in the third round of his fight at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Fury was taken to the hospital after his victory to be stitched up and he admitted that he was celebrating the next day after his medical treatment.
"I went to the hospital, had a few stitches, went home and had an early night," he told BBC Sport.
"Then I've got up, gone to the casino, won five grand, had a few beers and now I'm going to have a few more beers."
Fury won on points against the Swede and immediately called out fierce rival Deontay Wilder, who is expected to defend the WBC championship against the superstar Brit in early 2020.
While some fight fans felt Fury's cuts might have pushed back the date of their February rematch, the undefeated Brit dismissed the idea that would happen.
