Tyson Fury may need to take a year off to recover from injuries sustained during Otto Wallin fight

Deontay Wilder’s team have told Press that Fury will miss their rematch on 22 February 2020.

Mark Breland suggested Tyson will require a year off to recover from his injuries, sustained in a brutal fight against Otto Wallin earlier this year.

Fury’s fight against Wallin went the full 12 rounds and was only decided on a narrow victory by points with Fury winning by 2 points.

However in terms of physical injuries Fury, 31,  definitely came out the looser from the fight with two significant cuts to the face requiring 47 stitches around his eye.

The rematch against Wilder, 33, in Feb 2020, is now not likely to proceed, suggesting the injuries could be more serious than they initially appeared.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Al-Sahawat Times than ever but advertising revenues across the global media industry are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a total paywall. We want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Al-Sahawat Times’ independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe truly ethical media and an unbias perspective really matters.

“I appreciate there not being a paywall: it is more democratic for the media to be available for all and not a commodity to be purchased by a few. I’m happy to make a contribution so others with less means still have access to information.”

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, the future of ethical media and the futures of our staff and their families would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support Al-Sahawat Times and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
