Warren: Fury is Focused on Wallin, Not Looking Ahead To Wilder

By Frank Warren, courtesy of The Daily Star

Incredibly, another Tyson Fury fight week is nearly upon us.

This time it will be a dangerous, unbeaten Swede by the name of Otto Wallin facing Tyson a week today.

It seems like only yesterday Tyson was doing his best Apollo Creed impression on the way to the ring ahead of stopping Tom Schwarz.

It’s easy with Fury to look ahead to the potential big matches – particularly the Deontay Wilder rematch – but no one is overlooking Otto.

The 28-year-old is undefeated in 21 fights, knocking out 13 of his opponents.

That’s a healthy record by anyone’s standards and I’m sure Tyson’s trainer Ben Davison has been doing his homework – and Tyson and his team will walk into Las Vegas well prepared.

Rest assured, there will be no mistakes.

Elsewhere, Queensberry Promotions is proud to present a show full of the best prospects in British boxing.

London’s York Hall will be the place to be with Sunny Edwards fighting for the IBF International Flyweight title, Brad Foster taking on Lucien Reid, Zak Chelli against Kody Davies and Dec Spelman matching up with Shakan Pitters.

At Queensberry we take seriously our responsibility to develop and showcase the very best talent in British boxing, and it doesn’t get more exciting than next Saturday’s card on BT Sport.

Speaking of prospects, British heavyweight champion Daniel ‘Dynamite’ Dubois had a huge week in his own right.

Yesterday, on just his 22nd birthday, he received the London Boxer of the Year award from the London Ex-Boxers Association.

It’s a tremendous honour for such a young man and shows why we’re all excited for what he could achieve in the future.

It won’t be too long before he will be talked about in the same regard as the biggest names in the division.

Next up for Daniel will be Ghanaian Ebenezer Tetteh at the Royal Albert Hall on September 27 in a scrap for the Commonwealth title, as he continues his quest to win every belt on his way to the top.

[QUOTE=REDEEMER;20047031]Wallin has only 19 fights ? Why would he turn down an opportunity that gets him thrown into a title shot ? A loss is just a fight he wasn't supposed to win , looking at hi m it's plausible…

I hope Wallin wins. Having Fury, Wilder and Joshua is booooooooring. Good that Ruiz won, hopefuly he'll winn another time and will not agree for 3rd fight. Time for new vawe.

[QUOTE=JakeTheBoxer;20045196]I don`t understand how is Wallin managed. He fought bums and club fighters and now he fights Fury? His manager is dumb enough to believe he can win? Or is Wallin so bad that he will be thrown to Fury…

Wallin won't pose any threats to Fury

A person would have to be a damned fool to look past Otto Might lead to death
