Ben Davison, the head trainer for heavyweight contender Tyson Fury, has indicated that his fighter is healing quickly after suffering a severe cut in last month's fight against unbeaten Otto Wallin.
During that contest at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Fury was hit with a big hook that opened up a bad cut above his right eye. A second cut would open up around the area as the fight played out.
Fury would win a twelve round unanimous decision and received nearly 50 stitches to close up the wounds. The stitches were recently taken out.
There is still some obvious concern that Fury's cut will become a problem for a potential February rematch with WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder.
The fight with Wilder would depend on the champion winning next month's rematch with Luis Ortiz.
If the cut does not fully heal in time, the rematch with Wilder would have to get pushed back.
"There's lots of people involved there," Davison told Sky Sports. "In terms of the cut, on Tyson's behalf, what I would say is I'm not an expert in that field, so I couldn't really make too much of a comment there.
"Obviously Tyson is a fighter. As long as he's 100 percent, he's willing to fight. He's shown that time and time again. In terms of Wilder being ready, the broadcasters wanting it on that date, I couldn't comment there. In terms of the cut, like I say, I'm not an expert in that field, so we'll have to wait and see."
"[It's the worst cut that I've ever seen], for sure. Two of them as well. Obviously that one was the bigger one that looked worse, but the actual one that was affecting him most was the one on the eyelid, so like I say, with time they'll heal. I've always said Tyson is a freak of nature so he's healing pretty quickly and pretty well."
