Otto Wallin Confident, Plans To Check The Chin of Tyson Fury

Heavyweight contender Otto Wallin will be looking to chin check Tyson Fury when the two undefeated boxers collide on September 14th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

According to Fury, this bout is the final step before he takes on WBC world champion Deontay Wilder in a rematch in February of 2020.

Back in June, Andy Ruiz pulled off a major upset that rocked the entire heavyweight division when he dropped Anthony Joshua four times for a seventh round stoppage, and captured the IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO world titles.

Now Wallin wants to become the next fighter to pull off a major upset in his weight class.

He wants to test Fury's chin, because he believes the vicious knockdowns he suffered against Wilder in December 2018, may have taken something out of him.

"Anybody can get knocked out in the heavyweight division, that's why it's so exciting," Wallin told Sky Sports.

"Fury showed a good chin and a lot of heart in that fight, but maybe those shots have taken something out of him too."

When Wallin was contracted about facing Fury, he never believed the Gypsy King's team would select him. One of the other fighters who was being considered for the date was unbeaten Junior Fa.

"I didn't take it too seriously," said Wallin, when asked about initial talk of the Fury fight. "I thought that they were just reaching out to different guys to see who's available, but things got more serious every day and that was very exciting.

"To have this fight is a dream coming true. Now it's time to show I belong here. He can do whatever he wants in terms of taking me seriously or not. I'll be focusing on what I need to do to be 100% ready for fight night, and I will be."

Ruiz is a real fighter. Wallin is a cherry picked bum! Boxing fans know the difference.
