Tyson Fury maybe forced to fight Otto Wallin

WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury could soon be facing the harsh reality of being FORCED to fight the nightmarish Otto Wallin in a rematch, should the big 6’6″ Swede defeat interim WBC champion Dillian Whyte on October 30th.

The World Boxing Council has made it clear; Fury will need to face the winner of the Whyte vs. Wallin fight unless he faces IBF/WBA/WBO champion Oleksandr Usyk for the undisputed heavyweight championship.

That’s NOT going to happen because Anthony Joshua has already triggered his rematch clause for a second fight with Usyk (19-0, 13 KOs).

Unless Fury vacates his WBC or chooses to petition the sanctioning body to be elevated to Franchise champion, he will have to face the Whyte-Wallin winner in his next fight.

We already saw what Wallin did to Fury in their fight in 2019, giving him the most brutal match of his career. Wallin sliced Fury to ribbons, opening a cut over his right eye that would later require 47 stitches to close.

Many boxing fans believe that fight should have been stopped and Wallin given the victory, but the ringside doctor allowed it to go the complete 12 rounds with Fury bleeding like a sieve.

All the feints that Fury used so effectively in his three fights with Deontay Wilder were futile against the southpaw Wallin, who landed effectively to his midsection and head.

When that fight happened, Fury looked younger, lighter at 254 lbs than the flabby, older-looking 277 lbs that he weighed for his trilogy match against Wilder on October 9th.

That version of Fury didn’t move nearly as well as he had in his fight with Wallin in September 2019, and I don’t know that we’ll ever see Tyson in that kind of shape again.

If Fury does get back down to that weight, it’s debatable whether his mobility will be the same as when he fought Wallin two years ago.

When a person sits on their backside for two solid years, as Fury has done for the most part since the pandemic started, it changes you for the worse.

“Out all the great fighters that Tyson Fury beat, the one fighter that gave him the 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,” said promoter Dmitriy Salita to Sky Sports.

“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.”


“Otto is still getting better,” said Salita. The fight with Whyte is a big test and a massive opportunity to get the rematch with the WBC heavyweight champion.”

You got to believe that Fury will be rooting like mad for Dillian Whyte to defeat Wallin on October 30th at the O2 Arena in London, England. I wouldn’t be surprised if Fury is in the audience on the night with his pom-poms, rooting for Dillian every step of the way.

Fury matched up a lot better with Whyte than he does the 6’6″ southpaw Wallin. For Fury, Whyte is similar to Dereck Chisora, and he handled that guy twice in the past, beating him with ease.

  1. The WBC belt must be defended every year at least. Every exemption including the waivering of the twelve month limit for title defense for fury. So fury isn’t fighting anyone for.at least a year. He is afraid of being outed for the fraud that he is. New found power my ass.

  2. The non stoppage of the Otto Vallin fight is just one example of how fury was protected, developed and phoney baloney champion just like Anthony Joshua.

  3. Anthony Dunn is a Deontay Wilder fanboys who is delusional and deluded and in denial.about being deluded.

  4. All of you Eastern block refugees are absolutely correct. Deontay Wilder is the best heavyweight champion that ever lived without question. You gotta cheat him to beat him. BOMB squad!!!!!

  5. It’s true that Otto Vallin dotted his eye and cross his t, fury’s eye that is. However,in all fairness, fury underestimated Otto Vallin and had padding in his gloves. Thanks to paid off referee’s, the Shrek look a like ogre was allowed to continue with out stopping the fight.

  6. Whyte pulls out of the Wallin fight with a bogus shoulder injury, ensuring that he meets Fury. A wise business move by Whyte, who would have had a terrible time defeating the far smarter, quicker Wallin.

    • What you call a smart move is the type of thing you encouraged fury to do. All of those excuses,,,, excuse after another excuse clogging up the division for years and pulling out of fights. That goes to show you that one of these guy’s are championship material. The young punks call it being a businessman, we used to call it yellow belly.

  7. The guy who wrote this article seems a little biased, more than likely a disgruntled Wilder fan… BUM SQUAD

    • Anthony Dunn,
      Definitely glad to hear you agree with me that fury should be stripped of the WBC belt fined and imprisoned.

  8. What a load of garbage. Of course Wallin is a good fighter. Fury though beat him handily. Fury did take a few good shots including the one that opened the cut. The doctor probably would have called the fight if it wasn’t so one sided. Wallin was completely done for the last several rounds of that fight. I think Wallin does deserve a rematch at some point even if it’s their next fight he did much better than Wilder ever did (minus the few drops Wilder was able to accomplishment.

    • Next time our fury team will come more prepared with spiked water holding neck wrenching tripping rabbit punching and eggweight loaded gloves.

  9. I can’t see Wallin leap froging all the contenders. He may well be the guy that can give Fury the most trouble, but there is no money in that fight. It is hard to imagine him stopping Whyte . It is equally hard to imagine Wallin getting a decision over Whyte unless he wins every round. It is a very good fight though. A fight of the year for the heavy weight division type of fight. But not this year as nothing will top Fury vs Wilder 3.

  10. Fury was a bit complacent and caught between styles (show boating or direct) and got hit. He then easily outpointed Wallin despite being blind in one eye. The rematch, with his new power punching and the mental clarity from working with Sugar Hill would make him a clear favourite. He also wouldn’t get complacent against Wallin again. He was lucky for the match not to be called off though.

    • Newfound power punching is fighting with metal loaded gloves padding repositioning advantage floppy gloves flopping around all over the place camera’s rolling bribed judges and referee’s spiked water holding neck wrenching tripping rabbit punching and eggweight loaded gloves. Mental clarity is Las Vegas style drugs. The fella was stonesd out of his mind.

  11. Congratulations all that is nonsense
    Wallin will have to rematch Whyte if he wins
    Only Whyte can be installed as mandatory should he win
