BBC Sport in Las Vegas
Tyson Fury says he is”prepared for war” with Deontay Wilder at February despite worries the intense cuts suffered in his eponymous triumph over Otto Wallin could postpone their departure.
Speaking to BBC Sport as he was ushered through the airport in Las Vegas on Sunday, the 31-year British fighter said”just over 40 stitches” were needed for two reductions endured against Wallin on Saturday.
“I went into the hospital, then had a few stitches, moved home and had an early night,” he said.
“Then I’ve got up, gone to the match won five grand, had a couple of beers and today I’m likely to have a couple more beers.”
Fury lace sunglasses, which hid his stitching, and he stopped for photographs with fans who paid praise to him that his team were keen to catch him through safety at McCarran International Airport.
The Manchester-born fighter fought for over nine rounds while cut at the T-Mobile Arena and obtained a cut later in the struggle.
If Fury doesn’t heal 28, the injury prompted promoter Frank Warren to mention a proposed 22 February rematch with WBC world champion Wilder could be delayed.
Asked about a delay, Fury stated:”I’m ready for war. I think it was only over 40 stitches indoors and out with the cuts.
“Listen I’m all right. It’s boxing. You can’t go swimming and not get wet. It is the fight game.”
Fury’s promoters in the US have since confirmed he had 47 stitches in all subsequent to the bout, in regardless of being written off beforehand which Wallin took Fury.
In his fifth fight since coming into the sport back, Fury adapted during the fight.
Asked if this type of test would further improve him prior to any Wilder meeting, he responded:”100% – 12 rounds would bring me to another fight.
“I thought it was tough. He is a tough, lasting man Wallin.
“We put on a fantastic show for the Mexican fans and we have a enormous audience, I was quite surprised.”
