Tyson Fury had a great weekend which involved beating Otto Wallin, getting over 40 stitches, and winning £5,000 at a casino. Now, he's ready to face Deontay Wilder again.
Fury defeated Wallin via unanimous decision in Las Vegas on Saturday night, but he fought for more than nine rounds of the fight with a severe cut on his eyebrow.
The 31-year-old received a second cut later in the fight and his team stated 47 stitches were needed in order to treat both the cuts.
However, after receiving treatment at the hospital, his weekend only got better while he was still in Sin City, as he won £5,000 at the casino.
Fury said, via BBC Sport: "I went to the hospital, had a few stitches, went home and had an early night.

"Then I've got up, gone to the casino, won five grand, had a few beers and now I'm going to have a few more beers."
Beat Wallin, win £5,000 at a casino, and then celebrate with a few beers. Not a bad weekend at all for Fury!
Fury secured a unanimous 116-112 117-111 118-110 points win over Wallin at the weekend, which means he stays undefeated at 29-0-1, with the draw on his record coming from his first fight with Wilder.
However, the scheduled second meeting with The Bronze Bomber next year could now be up in the air due to the Gypsy King's injury.
Fury's injury has caused promoter Frank Warren to say a proposed rematch with Wilder on February 22 could be delayed if the cuts don't heal appropriately.
The British boxer though is confident that he will be ready to go to war again with the WBC World Heavyweight Champion.
He 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."News Now - Sport News
