Otto Wallin Eyes Tyson Fury Rematch Amidst Fury-Chisora Trilogy rumors
The emerging Swedish heavyweight Otto Wallin hasn’t welcomed the rumors of the WBC heavyweight titlist Tyson Fury fighting his British compatriot Derek Chisora for the third time in his career.
The Swedish southpaw is currently riding a four fight-winning streak since losing to the Gypsy King back in 2019. Wallin (24-1, 14 KOs) was manhandled by the 6-foot-9 Brit on the night, winning the fight comfortably with all three judges scoring the bout in favor of the latter.
Fury last made an appearance against his fellow Englishman, Dillian Whyte in the jam-packed Wembley stadium back in April where he got the better of the 38-year-old inside the six rounds.
After the fight, Fury announced that he was hanging up the gloves as he had already cleaned up the division and the desire to be in between the ropes was no longer there. But later on, the Gypsy King did confirm that a mega million deal close to $500 million could lunge him to take his decision back.
A recent public lash-out between him and Chisora has opened the door for a trilogy fight between the two, with Fury already beaten ‘the body snatcher’ in the previous meetings held back in 2011 and 201r4 respectively.
But Wallin who has been rated highly among the boxing fraternity wasn’t impressed by Fury’s calls out to Chisora, perceiving that he deserves the shot at Fury more than anyone else as he has made significant gains since their first clash.
“I deserved it with my performance in the first fight,” said Wallin.
Wallin believes that he is a better fighter than when the two last met back in 2019 and has a better chance of walking out victorious than Chisora against the Gypsy King. Wallin has tagged the Fury-Chisora trilogy as a blatant mismatch as the latter has won only once in his last four fights.
“I’m a better fighter now than what I was then and it’s simply not a competitive fight [between Fury and Chisora,” added Wallin.
“Fury has already beaten Chisora twice and once stopped him. You can’t compare my fight with Fury with Chisora’s two fights.”
