Tyson Fury overcomes cut to decision Otto Wallin.

How many of you all actually thought we’d get a competitive fight when Otto Wallin was announced as Tyson Fury’s next opponent months ago? Not many thought that including myself.

But boy were we wrong!

The unbeaten and unknown southpaw from Sweden Otto Wallin was determined to show the world that he was nothing like Tom Schwarz who was obliterated in two rounds by Fury on June 15.

Wallin standing at 6’5 came out looking to set the tone once the bell rang. It was clear this was going to be anything but an easy night for the former unified champion.

In round one, Wallin came out utilizing his jab to set up his overhand left as well as hard effective body shots. Fury, sporting a 85 inch reach would be outworked in the first few rounds, as he was forced to make adjustments earlier than he probably expected.

Then came round three! That’s where the real drama would begin as a Wallin left hand would open up a nasty cut over the right eye of Fury. However, the champion would show real grit and composure while fighting through real adversity.

The momentum would swing as the fight headed into the second half as Fury started to show class. Fighting with a sense of urgency, Fury would start to unload monstrous right and left hands to the head of Wallin, then came the body shots.

Fury would continue to be offensive minded as he elected to fight in close quarters risking an already nasty cut to be opened more.


This wouldn’t be boxing if we didn’t have drama! As the twelfth and final round began, Wallin would land a huge overhand left that for a moment would have everyone watching on the edge of their seats.

However, the exhausted Wallin couldn’t get that second wind to really capitalize on what he had just done.

At the end of the night we would be treated to a good tough and rugged fight with Fury being declared the winner by way of unanimous decision.

The scores read 116-112, 117-111 and 118-110.

Next up is the highly anticipated rematch with Deontay Wilder assuming of course the WBC champion is successful in his rematch with the dangerous Luis Ortiz.

In addition, pay close attention to the cut he sustained. It may end up taking more time to fully heal which would definitely postpone the rematch.
