‘Trouble’ tried to close the distance but couldn’t really get hold of the Swede. In the sixth round, he rallied by throwing big right hands, however, Wallin’s slick defense saved him from the power coming off the latter’s hands.

Wallin landed a combination of jabs alongside power-packed punches. He even attacked Breazeale’s body with cracking jabs.

By the first half of the fight, Breazeale had little energy in his tank. He got tired as the fight moved ahead and barely landed some quality punches. The latter capitalized on the same and traced Breazeale’s movements to constantly attack him.

Breazeale, the underdog in this fight, shook Wallin a handful of times with his right hooks. But overall, the 30-year-old was the better man tonight, who dispatched Breazeale with ease.

Beating an opponent as experienced as Breazeale will only fill Wallin with immense confidence. His win will make him a viable name that the aforementioned ranked boxers would want to take on. Wallin can stylistically matchup with enormous big-wigs like Kubrat Pulev, Luis Ortiz, or Dillian Whyte.

If he bags a 12-round bout against any of these opponents, Wallin will look to storm into the top-10 rankings by beating them. It’ll be interesting to see how things play out for the Swede boxer.
