*NO CUTAWAYS AT SOURCE*
SOT, Journalist: "Did you feel like Tyson's bodywork was a difference, I mean it seemed like he was really going hard to the body, especially after the cut. It seemed like he got pissed off and I thought maybe slowed Otto's pace down a lot in the second half of the fight?"
SOT, Ben Davidson, Tyson Fury's boxing trainer: "Yeah I mean, I thought to be honest, I had a feeling in the back of my mind that the fight was going to have to go that way. I knew that Otto could box, I knew he had good pedigree and I knew that he could make himself awkward. But I also knew that he didn't have the engine of Tyson, the size of Tyson, the heart of Tyson, the desire of him, and I knew that we had to have it in case he needed it, because I had a feeling that we might need it. And it turned out that he did, but luckily he had it in the locker."

*UPSOUND* Ben Davidson, Tyson Fury's boxing trainer: "At least I'm better looking than you now, hey?"
SOT, Journalist: "Can you give me a sense of Tyson, what that cut ... Did you sense that it was bothering him and how much was it bothering him?"
SOT, Otto Wallin, Swedish boxer: "Yeah it was bothering him some because the blood was coming down and he was shaking his head to get the blood out and try to get it off, so I'm sure it was bothering him some."
SOT, Ben Davidson, Tyson Fury's boxing trainer: "I know boxing, I know boxing very well but I'm not a surgeon, I couldn't comment on that. So, we'll have to see, Tyson's on his way way to get it all sorted out now. So, we'll have to see what advice he's given there."
SOT, Journalist: "Can you summerise how you feel about the game afterwards, what do you take with you from this fight?"
SOT, Otto Wallin, Swedish boxer: "You know, I did everything I could, I left it all in the ring. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough, Tyson is a great champion and he deserved to win."
SOT, Journalist: "I think it was in the fifth round the Doctor looked at the cut and he [Tyson Fury] really came out with, it seemed like a sense of urgency. Did you notice that too? That he was really trying to step on the gas at that point?"
SOT, Otto Wallin, Swedish boxer: "Yeah, yeah, I felt that he was trying it. I just wanted to keep going and hit the cut more and try to break him down."
W/S End of press conference
SCRIPT
Boxing legend Tyson Fury went directly to receive medical attention for a massive cut above his right eye following his victory by unanimous decision against Swedish boxer Otto Wallin, missing the post-fight press conference in Las Vegas on Saturday night.
The British boxer, known as the Gypsy King, suffered a nasty cut just above his right eye in round three of the match, but powered through the 12 rounds to defeat the Swede by unanimous decision at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
"It was bothering him some because the blood was coming down and he was shaking his head to get the blood out and try to get it off," Wallin said in the post-fight presser. "I did everything I could, I left it all in the ring. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough, Tyson is a great champion and he deserved to win."
Ben Davidson, Fury's boxing trainer, said, "Tyson's on his way way to get it all sorted out now. So, we'll have to see what advice he's given there."
