Tyson Fury and Otto Wallin locked horns for the very first time in 2019. In this fight, Fury, the aggressor, was surprised by Wallin’s brilliant punching speed. Wallin pressed Fury in the initial rounds of the fight. However, ‘The Gypsy King’ came back to win the fight with a unanimous decision.

That said, Wallin’s promoter, Dmitriy Salita, believes Whyte is the ticket for his fighter to secure a second fight with ‘The Gypsy King’.

In his recent interaction with Sky Sports, Salita said, “Out all the great fighters that Tyson Fury beat the one fighter that gave him most trouble, caused most controversy with the cut, who landed more punches than Wladimir Klitschko and Deontay Wilder in their first fights combined is Otto Wallin.”

“Otto had two impressive wins since that outing and a win over Whyte would make him the most eligible opponent for Fury and in my mind the second-best heavyweight in the world based on merit.” (h/t Boxing Scene)

Wallin will look to demolish ‘The Body Snatcher’ because there’s an even bigger prize aligned for him ahead.
