Tyson Fury suffered a horrendous cut in his victory over Otto Wallin in Las Vegas

He told VegasInsider: 'Tyson has had a mesh web inserted into his soft tissue where the cut is in order to strengthen it.

'Whenever you put a web on something it's only going to give it that additional support. But when I first met with Tyson, we went over the cuts and I saw immediately that the surgeon that did the work did a tremendous job.

'Technology is reaching a point where it's getting better and better.

'The advantages is you protect it while also having the natural healing. I would think that the tissue is going to grow into the webbing, so now you now have an extra layer which will all mesh into one.'

Deontay Wilder has spoken about wanting to reopen the cut this Saturday in the rematch with Fury. 

The 'Gypsy King' battled through and avoided the doctors calling the fight off 

But Duran went on to say that there have been no problems with it in the lead up to this weekend's huge showdown.

'The cut hasn't affected Tyson's sparring at all. The first time I started to put Vaseline on him, he said nobody had put it on like that before as his brother used to do it – so that was an honour to me.

'But you want to protect all the area, not just the cut. You just want to protect his whole face at all times.'
