Otto Wallin: Tyson Fury Will Be Too Much For Anthony Joshua
Former Tyson Fury opponent, Otto Wallin, believes “The Gypsy King” will best Anthony Joshua.
Joshua vs. Fury is considered by many to be the biggest fight that can be made in the world of boxing. The matchup would determine the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. Joshua holds the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO gold, while Fury is the WBC and The Ring Champion.
With the bout looking more likely, Wallin told Marc Gatford that he predicts a victory for Fury (via BonusCodeBets.co.uk).
“I think Fury can outbox him because he is bigger, awkward and has great boxing skills. The best way would be to box him coming forward and try to make Joshua go back but still use his height and reach. Joshua is always going to be dangerous because he’s a puncher.
“If he can get in on Fury and let off his good combinations that would be good, but I’m not sure because Fury’s a big guy, awkward, he can go southpaw, orthodox. I think Fury will eventually be too much but these are two best heavyweights in the world right now. I just feel like Fury is very confident, he’s got a good head, and he trusts himself a lot.”
Back in September 2019, Wallin proved to be a much tougher test for Fury than most anticipated. Fury was in danger of losing the fight from round three all the way until the end. That’s because Wallin’s punches caused two cuts over Fury’s right eye. Had the fight been stopped due to the severity of the cuts, Wallin would’ve been the winner. Fury survived and ended up scoring a unanimous decision victory.
