Blood was flowing down Tyson Fury's right cheek, and Otto Wallin was in his face. His scheduled rematch with Deontay Wilder suddenly in jeopardy, Fury needed to dig deep in a fight that wasn't supposed to be this hard. Fury did just that Saturday night, overcoming a bloody cut over his right eye to pound out a unanimous decision over his Swedish opponent and set up a lucrative heavyweight rematch with Deontay Wilder.Fury remained unbeaten in 29 fights and retained his claim to the lineal heavyweight title against a fighter who was little-known but gave the big Englishman all he could handle.When the fight resumed, Fury fought at a quicker pace, seemingly realizing he might be running out of time.That was particularly true in the later rounds, as Fury (29-0-1) tried to land uppercuts and Wallin kept punching at Fury's bloody right eye.Had the fight been stopped early because of the cut Wallin would have won.Wallin had his moments in the fight, but never seemed to really hurt Fury.
