British heavyweight star Tyson Fury faces Sweden’s Otto Wallin in a Top Rank main event at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday.
The fight marks Fury’s second-straight appearance in Vegas after he beat Tom Schwarz in a second-round TKO in June. Fury (28-0-1, 20 KOs) fought Deontay Wilder in a controversial split draw in December 2018, and the two are reportedly scheduled for a February 2020 rematch if the British star beats Wallin this weekend.
Wallin (20-0, 13 KOs) returns to the United States for a second time after facing Nick Kisner in Atlantic City in April. The bout was forced to stop and ended in no contest after an accidental head bump resulted in a cut over Kisner’s right eye. Wallin has an impressive record but has never faced anyone near Fury’s level. An upset by Wallin would be a huge boost to his career and disastrous for Fury
Tyson Fury is set to take on Tom Schwarz on Saturday night, 15th June 2019 at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas for the Lineal Heavyweight title fight. It will be the first fight for Fury since that amazing draw against Deontay Wilder last year and this fight against Schwarz will serve as build up to another fight against Wilder later in the year. However, Fury need to see off this little known Schwarz if he were to keep the momentum and you can watch the fight live here on this page.
For the dreams to come to fruition, Fury will have to take care of Wallin, his second-straight underwhelming opponent since facing Wilder. Earlier in the year, the 31-year-old made quick work of the dreadfully overmatched Tom Schwarz with a second-round TKO, though he did pack in plenty of entertainment in a short period of time.
Tyson Fury has a plan, and it will inevitably involve getting punched in the face.The former world heavyweight champion is facing a tune-up opponent in Otto Wallin (20-0, 13 KOs) on Saturday night in Las Vegas. While he maintains he’s not looking past the undefeated Wallin, Fury (28-0-1, 20 KOs) has already mapped out his dream fight schedule for 2020.
It’s the kind of ambition everyone likes to see out of the top fighters, especially in an era where so many dream matchups exist only in the imaginations of fight fans.
