Tyson Fury vs. Otto Wallin Live Results
Tyson Fury is inching closer to an anticipated WBC heavyweight title rematch with Deontay Wilder, but before he can get there, he must ensure he isn’t upset by Otto Wallin.
Fury vs. Wallin headlines a Top Rank Boxing card at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Fury was once the unified heavyweight champion of the world, but drug problems and a depression battle forced a two-and-a-half-year layoff from in-ring competition. Fury returned in 2018, defeating Sefer Seferi and Francesco Pianeta before battling Wilder to a controversial split draw in their December 2018 title fight, one that plenty felt Fury should have deserved the nod in.
Fury signed a co-promotional deal with Top Rank earlier this year, and he competed in June, where he scored a second-round finish of Tom Schwarz.
Sweden’s Wallin, who is competing in the U.S. for just the second time, is unbeaten in 21 pro bouts. His last bout took place in April againist Nick Kisner, a bout that went to a No Contest after an accidental headbutt caused a cut on Kisner.
Should Fury defeat Wallin and Wilder defeat Luis Ortiz in November, Wilder-Fury II is guaranteed.
The co-feature bout will be Emanuel Navarrete, just one month after defending the WBO super bantamweight title, making another defense of the strap, taking on Juan Miguel Elorde.
