Tyson Fury v Otto Wallin

Tyson Fury’s comeback was one of boxing’s big stories of 2018 as he emerged from exile to almost become world heavyweight champion for the second time in his career. His first couple of outings, against Sefer Seferi and Francesco Pianeta, were hardly bouts that made the world sit up and take notice, but the world certainly paid attention when he challenged unbeaten WBC champion Deontay Wilder in December of that year.

The 31-year-old dominated much of the contest and although he was floored twice by the heavy-hitting ‘Bronze Bomber’, many felt he had done more than enough to become heavyweight champion once again and put the first blemish on Wilder’s record. However, two of the judges saw things differently, resulting in a split decision draw, and that forced the WBC to order an immediate rematch which Fury would surprisingly turn down.

Fury made the shocking decision to turn the bout down though, and any hopes of a lucrative big-money bout for his next outing were dashed when it was announced that he would be taking on little-known Tom Schwarz. The decision to take on Schwarz was largely mocked and the critics were given even more ammunition when Fury took out his opponent in less than two rounds, with his ‘Living In America’ Rocky IV-inspired entrance grabbing more attention than the fight itself. And while he is facing a ‘step-up’ in quality for his next outing, this next bout is hardly capturing the imagination.

Providing the opposition for Fury’s next outing in Las Vegas is unbeaten Swedish heavyweight Otto Wallin, who now fights out of New York. The 28-year-old has compiled a 20-0 record, with one No Contest, since turning professional just over six years ago, and 13 of those 20 victories have seen the southpaw take out his opponent inside the distance. One of those wins, in April 2018, earned him the EBU and Swedish heavyweight titles, but make no bones about it, Wallin has never stepped into the ring with anyone of the calibre of Fury, and he knows it.

“This is the moment I have been dreaming of since I started boxing when I was 15,” Wallin told reporters. “I have been preparing for this. Now it's just I am fighting the best I have ever faced. I am fighting probably the best heavyweight out there, at least the best boxer. He is a big guy, uses his size well. He is very skilled and can do a lot of things in there. He is tricky and has beaten good fighters but there are some things that people haven't done to him. I am really confident in myself and my work ethic. I have worked for a long time and dreamed of this moment. Now it is finally here and I have to try and grab it with both hands.”

While this may be Wallin’s big moment, for Fury this just another step in his preparations for Wilder.

“I am pleased to be back in Las Vegas,” Fury said. “I loved my time there in my last fight and am going to put on a show again. Otto Wallin is a world-ranked fighter and is tall, something we want with the Deontay Wilder rematch around the corner. He is also a southpaw, which will bring its own obstacles, but I will be fully focused to get this job done because the rematch needs to happen.”

Fury may be talking a lot about Wilder, and some of the other top heavyweights, in the run up to this fight, but I do not buy into any suggestion that he could be overlooking Wallin and focusing too much on those mega-money bouts? We have already seen one huge shock in the division this year with Andy Ruiz Jr knocking out Anthony Joshua back in June, and Fury will be determined to ensure he is not the latest victim of a heavyweight upset. He will have shown respect to Wallin in his preparation for the bout and I fully expect him to dispatch of the Swede in pretty clinical fashion. Wallin may last longer the Schwarz, but I am confident that he will not make it beyond six rounds in Las Vegas.
