Lineal heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury takes on Otto Wallin on September 14, 2019, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The 31-year old Fury will be making the 5th defense of the lineal title and will be fighting for the second time since signing a promotional deal with Top Rank Boxing last February. In his debut for the company, the former unified world heavyweight champion scored a second-round knockout of then-unbeaten Tom Schwarz in his Las Vegas debut.

The 6-9 Fury has a massive reach of 85 inches and he fights out of the orthodox style. He has a record of 28-0-1 with 20 knockouts. He is best known for ending the Wladimir Klitschko reign in boxing, defeating the long-time champion decisively in 2015, and is one of the most charismatic yet enigmatic fighters of this era. Prior to beating Schwarz, Fury got up from a 12th round knockdown to force a draw with WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder in a fight many thought Fury won on points. A rematch between the two has been brewed but after the Briton signed with Top Rank, the parties could not reach an agreement for an immediate bout.

Sweden’s Wallin hopes to ruin the plans for a rematch between Fury and WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder. The 28-year old grew up in the small town of Sundsvall and has big dreams. He plans on making the best of this huge opportunity to score an upset over the Englishman who is a huge boxing betting favorite in this matchup.

Wallin is no small guy. He stands 6-5 ½ and has a reach of 78 inches. He fights as a southpaw so that should make him tricky for his opponent. He made his United States debut last April in Atlantic City. The bout against Nick Kisner ended in a no-contest after the latter suffered a nasty cut after an accidental clash of heads. Wallin has a record of 20-0 with 13 knockouts but only three out of his last nine bouts have ended via stoppage.

“Boxing" Who Wins?

I like Tyson Fury a lot and I really admire him for taking the Wilder fight. And after coming back from the grave in the final round, I have found myself really appreciating Fury more than before. However, in as much as I like Tyson Fury, this is cherry-picking on his part because while Otto Wallin looks like a decent foe on paper, he is leaps and bounds behind Fury in experience and ability.

Wallin is unbeaten but don’t let that deceive you. When you take a look at his resume, he has never fought anyone near the level of Fury’s opponents. Remember that he failed to knock out and then lost some rounds against Adrian Ganat, who lost to Dimitrenko via first-round knockout. With all due respect to him, I’m not sure if Wallin is better than what I think he is. But this is heavyweight boxing where one punch changes history so who knows? But if you ask me, I’ll tell you honestly that this isn’t the fight for Wallin to score an upset.

Let’s be honest. Tyson Fury is milking the time and waiting for a rematch with Deontay Wilder to marinate. Fury picked Wallin because he knows that the Swede won’t be much of a trouble for him while waiting for the big fight to finally materialize. This is like the Tom Schwarz fight really and I don’t blame Fury for picking Wallin as his next opponent

Tyson Fury is perhaps the best heavyweight there is today, at least to me he is the most skilled. I don’t think Otto Wallin is in his level and just like Tom Schwarz, I don’t think Wallin has a shot at a win here. Fury is just too big, too good, too slick and too smart for him. I’m not necessarily saying he will do no better than Schwarz but for sure, this is going to be a walk in the park for the People’s champion. Prediction: Tyson Fury
