Sweden’s top heavyweight boxer Otto Wallin isn’t shying away from the big names in the division.
The man who took Tyson Fury the distance and cut him open two times is back on track and it’s on a two-fight winning streak.
Wallin, 30, defeated Dominic Breazeale this February and now his eyes are on the bigger prize. According to Wallin’s promoter, he is 100% in for a showdown with the WBC interim heavyweight champion Dillian Whyte.
Whyte has just won his rematch with Alexander Povetkin. After the fight, Matchroom Boxing’s Eddie Hearn said that he’d like Whyte’s next match to be staged in the US.
“That could be an interesting encounter,” Wallin’s promoter Dmitriy Salita told Sky Sports.
“Otto is staying active and moving towards a world heavyweight title. If Dillian Whyte is in the way we will definitely explore that possibility.”
“Otto has proved his world-class abilities in his fight versus Fury, and in the near future can be ready for Joshua and Whyte,” Salita has previously said.
