Tyson Fury v Otto Wallin Boxing Winner Odds & Predictions

Fury can finish off underdog Wallin within six rounds

Boxing Preview – Sunday, September 15th from 4:00 am

Tyson Fury will be taking the next step towards a rematch with Deontay Wilder when he steps out in Las Vegas on the weekend. He will be taking on Swedish underdog Otto Wallin and this means that it is a situation where Fury can’t afford to lose. If so, that shot at Wilder again will fade into the distance.

Will Fury make light work of Wallin?

No, this most certainly is not the big headlining fight that you associate with Tyson Fury having. But it is another step closer to getting that rematch with Deontay Wilder. According to Tyson that has already been booked for next February, but that seems premature given that Wilder is still to fight Luis Ortiz and some point this year.

Also if Fury were to lose this, it’s hard to see a fight against Wilder happening. Anyway, since that epic draw with Wilder last December, Tyson has fought once. That was against Germany’s Tom Schwartz in June. Fury stopped his opponent in the second round. The Briton is a lot leaner and fitter than he was when he faced Wilder.

That bout with Schwartz was his first and only meaningful fight since returning from a three-year hiatus after beating Wladimir Kitslichok in 2015. Fury holds an unbeaten career record of 20-0-1 the draw being the one against Wilder. This does look to be another lop-sided fight which Fury is as short as 1/3 to stop by knockout* (betting odds taken from bet365 on September 11th, 2019 at 7:15 pm).

Can Wallin do a Ruiz?

Sweden Otto Wallin will be facing the biggest fight of his career. Well, back as an amateur he did fight Anthony Joshua twice and lost both times on point. But it has been twenty wins and a draw from Wallin in his professional career. He was last in action back in April against Nick Kinser which ended in a no-contest because of a clash of heads cut Kisner open in the first round and the fight was called off.

He was then supposed to meet BJ Flores in July but his opponent pulled out because of medical issues. So that’s very little prep from the Swede whose last meaningful fight was going the distance against fellow countryman Adrian Granat almost 18 months ago. He just hasn’t faced anyone of Fury’s quality in his professional career. The Swede can look to Andy Ruiz and the Mexican defying all the odds to beat the world champion Anthony Joshua as an inspiration. But a win for Wallin would be an even bigger shock that Ruiz’s was.

Prediction

Fury is looking in great shape, seems to be focused on this fight and not Wilder and just all-round seems to be in a really good place. That should bode well for him coming out and landing a few blows. Fury in Rounds 1-6 is a fit at 11/10 odds* (betting odds taken from bet365 on September 11th, 2019 at 7:15 pm)
