Usyk vs. Huck: Otto Wallin vs. Timur Stark Added To The Card

Swedish heavyweight talent Otto ‘All in’ Wallin (18-0, 12 KOs) faces German Timur Stark (8-2-0, 7 KOs) in a ten round contest when the World Boxing Super Series premieres on September 9 at the Max-Schmeling-Halle in Berlin, Germany. Tickets can be bought on stubhub.de and eventim.de.

“It feels great to fight on such a big card as the World Boxing Super Series is,” said 26-year old Wallin.

“The fight for the Muhammad Ali Trophy attracts the eyes of the world so it's a great opportunity for me that I want to seize with both hands.”

Wallin, who is training out of New York under two-time world champion Joey Gamache, has respect for his four-year older opponent.

“My opponent Timur Stark is a decent fighter, lost only to top guys so now it's my turn to show that I'm a top guy. The crowd in Berlin can expect me to go ‘All in’ as usual,” said Wallin, who claimed the WBA Continental Heavyweight Title in April with an impressive TKO victory in round five over Italian Gianluca Mandras.

“I’m in great shape and as always I've been working very hard since my last fight. The difference this time is that I've been training in New York and I've been getting plenty of good sparring,” said Wallin. 

"It's the first time that I've been able to get such good sparring on a daily basis and I think it's going to make a huge difference for me.”

Timur Stark is also ready to play his cards right in Berlin: "I will prove to Wallin that I have the better hand in my hands on September 9. This fight will not go the distance.”

Also confirmed on the undercard of the World Boxing Super Series quarter-final bout between Aleksandr Usyk and Marco Huck:

Frederik Hede Jensen vs. Baska Tuvdenlhagva (four rounds featherweight).
