Tyson Fury faces little threat in Otto Wallin clash

Press Release

The article that you're about to read is an official announcement issued to Ring News 24 to publish as a press release.

KO Boxing Forum

Following on from the highly disputed draw with reigning WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder at the back end of last year, Tyson Fury’s run of opponents since have been somewhat of an anti-climax.

Fans were promised a rematch as soon as possible in light of that dramatic heavyweight title showdown in California last December but both men have gone in separate directions frustratingly.

The second meeting has been reportedly scheduled for early next year and their rematch would undoubtedly become one of the biggest and most attractive match-ups of 2020 if so. But fight fans are constantly having to wait for the big bouts to happen while the top names rack up routine victories over lesser-known foes in the meantime.

Manchester-native Fury bounced back from a disappointing draw with Wilder earlier this year when he outboxed and ultimately outclassed an overmatched German opponent Tom Schwarz in June. Fans got excited that the rematch would take place at the end of this year after that one-sided stay-busy ring outing, but unfortunately not.

Next up for the Briton is another seemingly easy clash against Sweden’s Otto Wallin, who arrives in Las Vegas for this meeting as a huge underdog.

It’s the former unified world heavyweight champion and current lineal titleholder that will enter as the massive 1/40 favourite in the Tyson Fury v Otto Wallin odds to prevail as widely expected.

After Fury’s new deal over on American soil, it became clear that the man who previously dethroned Wladimir Klitschko in Germany would not be facing Wilder as soon as possible, as initially outlined.

Instead, the popular heavyweight giant has been busy earning some solid paydays fighting lesser threats Stateside and continuing to build his reputation further before eventually stepping back into the ring with Wilder.

The American was able to twice knock the Briton down during the course of their thrilling bout and the 12th and final round produced one of the most memorable moments in the sport for many years.

That’s why fans and anyone involved in boxing were very eager to see the repeat clash happen immediately after. But, as is always the case and particularly in the current climate, money talks.

Both men will definitely collide once again next year; there’s simply too much money involved for all parties associated with it not to. So, in the meantime, Fury is set to collide with Wallin on September 14th at the T-Mobile Arena in Sin City.

To cause further frustration for UK fans hoping to see Fury in action for as long as this fight lasts, they will have to fork out even more money as the bout is set to be broadcast on BT Sport Box Office.

While there’s no way a meeting with Wallin should warrant a PPV card, Fury himself is perhaps the biggest name in the top division of the sport and that’s how those involved will justify it.

Fans will have to wait a little longer for Fury to step into the ring with Wilder once again next year (hopefully), but the big Briton will likely provide some more glimpses of his ring abilities this weekend on his latest American showcase outing.
