Tyson Fury won a unanimous points decision in Las Vegas having been caught in the third round with a punch from Otto Wallin, which opened up a large gash on his right eyebrow and a smaller one on the eyelid.

Fury is desperate to take on Deontay Wilder for the second time, despite suffering an injury.

The former WBA, IBF and WBO champion needed 47 stitches in total, which will be removed in two weeks.

Fury 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.”
