Warren: Fury Won't Be Allowed To Exercise For At Least 2 Months

Tyson Fury will have the option of being checked over by a Harley Street skin specialists this week to ensure he is ready to face Deontay Wilder in February.

The British heavyweight is confident he will be cleared to face the WBC heavyweight champion despite needing 47 stitches to sort out two horror cuts from his bloody battle with Otto Wallin at the weekend.

Fury’s promoter Frank Warren hopes his man won’t need surgery but will have plastic surgeons ready if he wants to get checked over.

Warren said: “I’ve got a Harley Street specialist on stand by to examine Tyson.

“Should he need a surgical incision to make sure he heals properly then the sooner it’s done the better.”


The ideal scenario is to wait for the stitches to be removed in two weeks as planned and hope the cuts have healed.

Fury, 31, would then need to give the wounds a further eight weeks before he could even consider taking punches on the eye again.

Warren added: “Five months might seem a long time but the cut in the eyebrow is so serious that he won’t be allowed to do any exercise whatsoever for at least two months.

“If all goes well that would just give him time for his 12-week training camp.

“We don’t want to push back the date unless we have to but the most important thing is that he is perfectly healed and fully prepared for that fight.

“Once his treatment has been decided he needs as much rest as can get at home with his family.

“He has to focus on the benefits of taking it really easy. Fortunately there are huge incentives for him to be right on the money for the Wilder fight.”
