It took 47 stitches to shut the opening on Fury’s eye after the Otto Wallin fight. And the boxing pundits can not help but speculate whether that will affect the outcome of the fight.

Wilder is known for his freakish power. He knocked out Fury multiple times in the first right too. What if Wilder’s punch glazes Fury’s eye resulting in a similar injury to the one in Otto Wallin fight? There is a threat that the ringside doctor might stop the fight.
