Frank Warren spoke with Tyson after the defeat to make sure he was okay.

Warren is confident that Fury will be able to make the necessary changes to avenge the first defeat of his career.

"I think he can do it, and he believes it himself. At some point in the fight, at the end of the seventh round, he landed some good punches to the head and Usyk was a little bit shocked, but then he went back to the corner, recovered and in the next round he hit Tyson perfectly in the nose. It knocked him off his rhythm, and we know what happened in the ninth round," the promoter said.
