Fury sending hero cut man who saved career vs Wallin money to avoid poverty

TYSON FURY sent money to the hero cutman who saved his career during the Otto Wallin fight during the Coronavirus pandemic.

Jorge Capetillo was thrust into the spotlight when Fury suffered a horrendous cut above his right eye back in September 2019.

From the third round onwards on the way to a unanimous points win, Fury’s eye gushed blood with the ringside doctor even consulted as to whether it was safe for the Gypsy King to carry on.

But thanks to Capetillo’s work on the horror gash, Fury battled through to secure a hard-fought win – and then had to have 47 stitches.

The coronavirus lockdown saw Capetillo’s Las Vegas gym close and the Mexican admitted to having “empty pockets”.

But Fury stepped in to help the man who set him on the path to WBC glory by battering Deontay Wilder to win the belt.

He is a great man, so humble. He had the time to ask how I was doing with my family during this crisis

Speaking to Sky Sports, Capetillo, who describes the cut as “the worst I’ve ever seen”, said: “He is still very grateful.

“When he knew we were locked down because of Covid-19 and my gym was closed, he texted me and said: ‘Is there anything I can do to help?’

“He is still taking care of me. He sent me money.

“I was supposed to be with Jessie Vargas in New York on March 14 (2020) but the fight was cancelled and I came home with empty pockets.

“I was scared, I didn’t know what to do.

“He knew Jessie’s fight was cancelled. He asked about my family and what he could do.

“He said: ‘I’ll sort out some money for your family so you can be good’. Such generosity for me and my family.

“He is a great man, so humble. He had the time to ask how I was doing with my family during this crisis.”

Capetillo went on to describe how once he “controlled the bleeding” against Wallin he told Fury that “everything will be good”.

And so it proved as the Wythenshawe-born fighter won comfortably on points, 116–112, 117–111, and 118–110.

Fury then went on to destroy Wilder in February that year to win the one heavyweight belt he never had before.

Her further cemented his dominance over the Bronze Bomber with a win in their trilogy fight.

Currently, Fury is in talks to sign an epic contract to fight Anthony Joshua – although the bout is yet to be confirmed.
