Tyson Fury returns to action this weekend and he’s back in America when taking on little-known opponent Otto Wallin at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. This will be the third fight in-a-row where Fury has boxed stateside as his reputation there grows. Here are our top Tyson Fury v Otto Wallin betting tips & predictions.
A Closer Look
It’s expected he will bag another win, and many believe the Englishman will do it without encountering too much resistance along the way. However, it’s worth remembering this is heavyweight boxing and anything can happen. When the first bell sounds, Fury must be at the top of his game to ensure he gets the job done. He must win and he must put on a show.
Not a lot is known about Otto Wallin by casual boxing fans and sports bettors. However, his CV is impressive enough and he arrives with a record showing 20 wins from as many starts. Thirteen of those victories were claimed by knockout. A 62% KO average means the Swedish southpaw will have Team Fury’s full attention. Wallin was last seen beating Adrian Granat on points to win the European title but he’ll face a much tougher test here. The betting says Wallin has little chance of winning, offering 10/1 (William Hill).
A Knockout Fight?
Since drawing with WBC champion Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury – now 28-0-1 – has returned to knock out Tom Schwarz inside two rounds at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. He dropped his opponent once in round two before the fight was waved off by referee Kenny Bayless for the beaten man’s own safety. There’s no surprise to see Fury as hot favourite for more of the same and he’s no better than 1/25 with Ladbrokes to beat Otto Wallin.
