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.

He said: "I'm ready for war. I think it was just over 40 stitches inside and out with both the cuts.

"Listen, I'm all right. It's boxing.

"You can't go swimming and not get wet. It's the fight game."

Fury's father, John, blasted his corner team's performance and called for his son to sack them after he was cut open.

But Fury's trainer, Ben Davison, came out in defence of the Brit's performance and the work of his corner team.

Boxing fans also branded Wallin a 'cheat' and 'incredibly dirty' after footage showed that he took a swipe at Fury's cut after the bell.

WBC kingpin Wilder, 33, is expected to rematch Cuban star Luis Ortiz in November -- but an official announcement has not been made.

Will Fury beat Wilder in the rematch?
