Parker's Trainer: Otto Wallin is a Safe Fight For Tyson Fury

Kevin Barry is a very interested observer of the Tyson Fury-Otto Wallin heavyweight showdown.  They will collide on September 14th at the T-Mobile Arena on the Las Vegas strip.

Guido Vianello will fight for the first time under Barry's watch on the under card. Both Vianello and Barry's other charge, Joseph Parker, trained alongside Fury for part of his previous training camp for Tom Schwarz.

As was the case in the fight against Schwarz, Barry doesn't expect Fury to have any problems with Wallin.

"I think that once again it is a very safe fight for Tyson. The only real challenge is that the guy is a southpaw but I don't think it will matter.  Otto Wallin finds himself in a position where if Tyson Fury wasn't lining up a rematch with Deontay Wilder in the early months of next year he wouldn't be in this position fighting in a big fight like this. Wallin has never experienced anything like a Tyson Fury. Like he is going from level 1 to level 10 in one fight. It is a massive step up and a fight that I honestly don't see Tyson having any trouble whatsoever," Barry explained.

The veteran trainer believes the most important aspect of this fight for Fury is that it gets him back in the gym and training.

Fury stated several times after his draw against Wilder that he wasn't at 100% when they squared off last December. Barry believes that another training camp will have him in optimum condition for their rematch which is tentatively penciled in for February 22nd, 2020.

"It keeps him busy. It keeps him in the gym for another training camp and we all know that one of the very biggest fights in heavyweight boxing is Fury versus Deontay Wilder and they both are fighting southpaws in their next fight.  Makes it very interesting," Barry told BoxingScene.com.
