Dmitry Salita: Otto Wallin Has Tyson Fury’s WBC Heavyweight Title In His Sights
It can be seen that Otto Wallin (23-1) has been working tirelessly to get himself in shape for the WBC heavyweight title. In 2019, the Swede suffered the only defeat in his career against Tyson Fury.
After this disappointing defeat, Wallin has put together a winning run as he tries to push himself into the world title contention. The Swedish heavyweight is happy to face either Anthony Joshua or Oleksandr Usyk.
According to Swede’s promoter Dmitry Salita, Wallin is “more than ready” to set his standards against Tyson Fury. Since the Englishman is the only man to defeat Wallin, makes the battle even more interesting.
Fury’s future is up in the air in recent weeks, but it will become clearer by the end of May.
The WBC wants to know whether the two-time world champion has priorities for the future or whether he wants to put an end to his professional career.
The 33-year-old has previously said that he will retire from the sport after successfully defending his world titles against Dillian Whyte last month.
“If Fury decides to vacate the title, Wallin is ready to grab his opportunity,” Salita said.
The Swede has also previously said that he would like to fight Anthony Joshua in the near future. Wallin’s next bout will be against American Rydell Booker in Detroit later this month.
