Paris Fury has revealed she was ‘left shaking’ after seeing husband Tyson’s severe cut above his eye.

The Gypsy King’s blockbuster heavyweight unification bout with Oleksandr Usyk has been postponed after he suffered the cut in sparring.

The wound, which has been labelled by his promotion team as a ‘freak cut’, required stitches, forced the postponement of the undisputed heavyweight contest.

Breaking her silence for the first time on Instagram, Paris said: ‘My full body was shaking with nerves when he showed me this cut because I wasn’t there with him.

‘He sounded so p***ed off and disappointed, but this is boxing (a dangerous sport) and these things can happen.’

Discussing the cut, a dejected Fury said: ‘I am absolutely devastated after preparing for this fight so long and being in such superb condition.

‘I feel bad for everyone involved in this huge event and I will work diligently towards the rescheduled date once the eye has healed. 

‘I can only apologise to everyone affected including my own team, Team Usyk, the undercard fighters, partners, and fans as well as our hosts and my friends in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.’ 

Usyk’s team have already moved to goad Fury after the news, with his promoter Alexander Krassyuk writing him a message with a subtle dig.

‘Wish you the soonest recovery,’ he said in response to Fury’s post. ‘God sent you a sign. Think of retirement brother.’

Meanwhile, Usyk’s manager Egis Klimas went on a brutal X-rated rant and said Fury would ‘do anything not to face’ the IBF, WBA and WBO champion.

He is quoted by Ring Magazine as saying: ‘Fury is a f****** coward who will do anything not to face Usyk, and he asked his b**** to hit him with a frying pan in his brow. You can quote me word for word for that.’

The Telegraph report that an accidental clash was behind the cut to Fury, causing him to need 15 stitches to patch it up.

Fury’s promoter Frank Warren later appeared on talkSPORT to reveal that the clash came during a sparring session with a Croatian fighter – who Sky Sports claim is southpaw Agron Smakici – and stressed he still believes the bout will happen.

‘It’s the biggest blow to Tyson,’ he said. ‘He’s worked very hard and has been training very hard for this fight and has unfortunately sustained this terrible cut today.

‘It’s off, it’s postponed and in due course I’m sure we’ll announce a new date for the fight. It happened this morning in sparring with a Croatian heavyweight who caught his eye with his elbow.

‘Of course I do [think the fight will still go ahead]. It’s what everybody signed up for. It’s a huge fight – the biggest fight this century, there’s no doubt about that.

‘It’s unfortunate where we are but we will make sure that it will occur because it’s the fight that everybody wants to see.’

The fight would have seen the first undisputed champion crowned since Lennox Lewis in 1999.
