Heavyweight contender Otto Wallin will box for the first time since his December defeat to Anthony Joshua when he takes on Richard Lartey in Atlantic City.

Wallin-Larety will take place on Friday, July 26 at the Tropicana Hotel and Casino and is an eight-round top of the bill attraction as part of a Boxing Insider Promotions show.

New York-based Swede Wallin is 26-2 (14 KOs) and a 33-year-old southpaw who lost a bloody fight over 12 rounds to Tyson Fury in Las Vegas back in 2019.

He defeated Murat Gassiev in Turkey last year, before running into a destructive Joshua in Saudi Arabia on the Day of reckoning show.

Ghana’s Lartey is 16-6 (13 KOs), with losses to Daniel Dubois, Nathan Gorman and Fabio Wardley and Sergey Kuzmin on his slate.

Also on the bill are middleweight Marco Romero, heavyweight Bruce Seldon and lightweight Jason Castanon (all 1-0), 4-0 junior middleweight Jacob Riley Solis and 9-0 junior middleweight Justin Figueroa.
