Tyson Fury Opens Up About His Biggest Concern Ahead Of Deontay Wilder Rematch
Tyson Fury has suggested that his horror cut above his right eye could open up in his highly-anticipated rematch with Deontay Wilder.
The 31-year-old Brit superstar suffered two nasty cuts during his hard-fought points victory over Otto Wallin last September.
And Fury required over 40 stitches to seal up the wounds that he picked up from his bout in Las Vegas.
When he was asked about the cut, the 'Gypsy King' told Sky Sports: "The eye is doing well.
"The eye is healed up quite well. Is there any risk? I don't know because I am not a surgeon.
"I am sure there will be. There is nothing much I can do about that.
"If it opens up, it opens us. It's out of my control. There is nothing I can do about that eye opening in a fight."

Fury hasn't fought in a professional fight since he picked up the injury from Wallin.
But the 'Gypsy King' was involved in a WWE storyline with Braun Strowman and made his in-ring debut at Crown Jewel last October.
The boxing superstar managed to avoid the cut from opening during his sensational partnership with WWE, but Wilder has warned Fury that he will target it in their fight.
"I will absolutely be using that cut as a target, and I am definitely going to open it up again," he said.
"I will make sure I open that one up and I'll make sure I open a new one up, too.
"It's going to be a bloody night for him and all I can say to him is 'buddy, rest up,' you're going to need it, it's going to be a long and painful night."
Fury, who has vowed to KO Wilder in the rematch, fought the WBC champion to a controversial draw in their blockbuster 2018 bout.
Wilder, 34, will defend the championship crown against his fierce rival on 22nd February in Las Vegas.
