TYSON FURY insists he is happy with how his fight against Otto Wallin went – and even happier with the job doctors did stitching up his eye.

The Mancunian won a unanimous points decision in Las Vegas having been caught in the third round with a punch from the Swede which opened up a large gash on his right eyebrow and a smaller one on the eyelid.

Fury battled through nine rounds with blood continually running into his eye before being taken straight to the University Medical Center of Southern Nevada immediately after the fight to see a plastic surgeon.
