Tyson Fury admits the horrific cut he suffered above his eye last year could open up in his rematch with Deontay Wilder.

The former unified heavyweight champion suffered two horrific lacerations above his right eye in his unanimous decision victory over Otto Wallin last September.

One of the cuts was a deep gash along the brow of his eye, which required a staggering 47 stitches to close.

Understandably, there are concerns Fury’s cut could reopen in his eagerly-anticipated second meeting with Wilder, who many regard to be the hardest-hitting straight puncher in the history of boxing.

Fury, however, isn’t thinking about the possibility of the wound reopening.

Wilder, 34, believes the severity of Fury’s cut should’ve led to the fight being stopped, saying: “Come on bro. This is a three-inch deep cut, like a rainbow over his eyebrow.

Fury has been preparing for his second crack at Wilder in Sin City and looks to be in phenomenal shape ahead of his third world title fight.
