Tyson Fury's reputation in the United States will not be affected by his gruelling 12-round victory over relative unknown Otto Wallin, according to the boxer's promoter Frank Warren.
However, it remains to be seen whether the deep cut he received above his right eye, and a smaller one on the eyelid, will impact the scheduling of his highly-anticipated rematch with Deontay Wilder.
Fury battled through nine rounds with blood continually running into his eye to take a unanimous points decision before being transported straight to the University Medical Center of Southern Nevada.
The 31-year-old told the PA news agency on Sunday he had received 50 stitches and doctors had done a "fantastic job".
"I know boxing very well but I couldn't comment on that. We will have to see what advice he gets," he said.
"Obviously it affected him a lot, he couldn't see out of it but he had to make out he could see out of it.
"Boxing is full of obstacles, sometimes you have to overcome these obstacles and that is what Tyson did. That is what champions have to do."
Davison also brushed off criticism from Fury's father John, unable to travel to the USA because of previous convictions, who said his son looked "weak as a kitten" and the performance was "the worst I have seen from Tyson".
"John is Tyson's dad so you have to respect him but Tyson was fully prepared, you can't do nothing about a bad cut," he added.
"Just because someone's gone the distance you can't say someone is weak. If someone is weak they wouldn't have done 12 rounds like that.
"I didn't just keep saying it for the sake of it, he (Wallin) wasn't to be underestimated.
"That is why we worked in training for it to potentially be a dogfight because we knew we might have to go there – although not in that manner.
"Luckily we had prepared Tyson for that, because that's what he needed."
