Sweden’s heavyweight Otto Wallin is just days away from his clash with Dominic Breazeale.
The pair is set to meet this Saturday night in the US. Wallin, 30, is on a mission to get back at Tyson Fury, the man he fought back in 2019.
The fight was dubbed as David vs. Goliath, but in reality, Wallin fought pretty well and took Fury to the 12th round mark. Something Deontay Wilder couldn’t do five months later.
While Wallin’s goal is to win a world title – he’d like to get another crack at Fury in the future.
“My dream is to fight and win the world title so for right now I just have to keep fighting and improving so when I get the shot I’ll be ready to grab it with both hands,” said Wallin to Sky Sports.
“The Tyson Fury rematch is not my top priority but I truly hope I get another shot at him. I just have to keep fighting and winning and show that I’m worthy of a rematch and when the time comes I’m ready to go in and beat him.”
At the moment, Fury is engaged in serious negotiations to face WBO, IBF, WBA, IBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.
“I think AJ versus Fury is the fight to be made. I wanna see it and the world wants to see it,” Wallin said. “They are the two best heavyweights in the world right now and we need that fight.
“I’ve been watching AJ’s fight with Breazeale lately and AJ has got a great style and he’s got all the tools to beat Fury but I’m not sure how much AJ trusts himself. I think Fury has a strong mind and good confidence and sometimes that’s more important than anything. That’s why I believe Fury would win.”
