Tyson Fury may be saddled with a huge bill for a plastic surgeon thanks to the two cuts sustained to his right eye during his heavyweight victory over Otto Wallin.
The British fighter was cut twice by the Swede, with cutsman Jorge Capetillo stemming the bleeding during the bout before 47 stitches were applied afterwards.
However, cutsman Mick Williamson, who worked with the likes of Tony Bellew and Ricky Hatton, suggested Fury may have to take a leaf out of the Hitman’s book and employ a plastic surgeon during future fights.
Williamson told SunSport: “Forty seven stitches sounds terrible but it’s really ‘the more the merrier’ in that situation.
“They are not going to hurt you and the more you put in the tighter the wound is bound and quicker it will heal.
“That many stitches means he has probably had micro-plastic surgery, stitches inside the cut and then on the skin on the outside, and that is the best way.
“Ricky Hatton used to cut very badly but later on in his career, when he had made a few quid, he used to pay a top plastic surgeon around £3,000 per fight, just to be there on call.
“It might sound like a lot but when you are fighting for that mega-dough, it is really worth it. That sort of money is nothing compared to what these guys are earning.”
Fury gave Capetillo a cash bonus for his help in getting him through the remaining nine minutes of the fight despite the large gash.
