USA: Tyson 'deserved to win' - Otto Wallin after defeat to Fury

United States, Las Vegas
September 15, 2019 at 07:36 GMT +00:00 · Published

Boxing legend Tyson Fury went directly to receive medical attention for a massive cut above his right eye following his victory by unanimous decision against Swedish boxer Otto Wallin, missing the post-fight press conference in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

The British boxer, known as the Gypsy King, suffered a nasty cut just above his right eye in round three of the match, but powered through the 12 rounds to defeat the Swede by unanimous decision at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

"It was bothering him some because the blood was coming down and he was shaking his head to get the blood out and try to get it off," Wallin said in the post-fight presser. "I did everything I could, I left it all in the ring. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough, Tyson is a great champion and he deserved to win."

Ben Davidson, Fury's boxing trainer, said, "Tyson's on his way way to get it all sorted out now. So, we'll have to see what advice he's given there."
