Heavyweight contender Otto Wallin is only a few days away from his crossroads clash with Dominic Breazeale, which is part of a Showtime televised tripleheader from the Mohegan Sun in Connecticut.

Wallin is known to most boxing fans as the fighter who nearly derailed current WBC champion Tyson Fury in 2019.

During their fight, Fury sustained two severe cuts - which were created by legal punches.

There was legitimate concern that the fight would be stopped due to Fury's injuries - which would have made Wallin a TKO winner.

The officials allowed the contest to continue until the final bell and Fury came away with a twelve round unanimous decision win.

While Wallin's goal is to win a world title - he'd like to get another crack at Fury in the future.

"My dream is to fight and win the world title so for right now I just have to keep fighting and improving so when I get the shot I'll be ready to grab it with both hands," said Wallin to Sky Sports.

"The Tyson Fury rematch is not my top priority but I truly hope I get another shot at him. I just have to keep fighting and winning and show that I'm worthy of a rematch and when the time comes I'm ready to go in and beat him."

At the moment, Fury is engaged in serious negotiations to face WBO, IBF, WBA, IBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.

Based on the fights he's reviewed, Wallin is backing Fury to win that unification.

"I think AJ versus Fury is the fight to be made. I wanna see it and the world wants to see it," Wallin said. "They are the two best heavyweights in the world right now and we need that fight.

"I've been watching AJ's fight with Breazeale lately and AJ has got a great style and he's got all the tools to beat Fury but I'm not sure how much AJ trusts himself. I think Fury has a strong mind and good confidence and sometimes that's more important than anything. That's why I believe Fury would win."
