    Default Tyson Fury vs Otto Wallin £19.95 on BT PPV

    Tyson Fury vs Otto Wallin: Brit reveals why he’s a ‘freak of nature’ and can ‘beat them all’

    Tyson Fury claims a mega fight against Deontay Wilder is not on his mind ahead of his return to the ring this weekend in Las Vegas and that he can "beat them all" because he is a "freak of nature".

    The 31-year-old takes on little-known Otto Wallin on Saturday but attention in the industry has already turned towards the rematch against WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder, with promoter Bob Arum adamant a deal has already been signed.

    The American suggested he could swerve the fight with Fury taking step-aside money, but the Brit quickly shot down the offer and remains focused on Wallin for now.

    "I am not interested in Deontay Wilder or any of the rest of the heavyweight division. I am interested in Otto Wallin on Saturday night," said Fury, who dazzled at an open workout at the MGM Grand. Fury donned a Mexican wrestling mask and plans to incorporate a Mexican theme into his ring walk due to his fight taking place on the weekend celebrating Mexican independent day.

    "I have no interest in February at all. It is all about Saturday night, it is all about the Gypsy King.

    "It is not about February, or Christmas or New Year or any other day - it is all about Saturday night in Las Vegas.

    "I have no interest in future fights: one day day a time in my life, one fight at at time, one hour at a time."

    Fury remains confident, despite being knocked down and almost out by the Bronze Bomber last year, insisting his skills are unique to the division.

    "I can defeat them all with one hand," he said.



    "I have lightning reflexes for a giant. I am a giant of a heavyweight, there has never been a heavyweight like me and there has never been a heavyweight who can move like that.

    "I'm a freak of nature, I defy every law of gravity, it shouldn't be possible for a man of my height and weight to move like that.

    "I can beat them all."​

    Jarrell Miller reportedly in advanced talks with Top Rank and could be a possible opponent for Tyson Fury
    Miller was due to challenge Anthony Joshua on June 1 at MSG, but failed multiple VADA tests in April for a variety of different banned substances.

    He was never officially banned from boxing, due to a loophole, as his licence with the New York State Athletic Commission had expired, meaning that they did not have the jurisdiction to punish him.

    Promoter Dmitry Salita is in Las Vegas with Otto Wallin as he prepares to face Fury this weekend, and is also working on a deal that could one day lead to Miller facing the Brit, Mike Coppinger reports.

    Fury does not need another gimme. It is not like there are no other heavyweights out there who would fight him. Charr,Bryan,Parker,Pulev,Rivas, Kownacki ...

    ‘Honorary Mexican’ Tyson Fury hilariously hits back at Andy Ruiz Jr after world champ said Gypsy King was ‘talking sh*t’

    Tyson Fury doesn’t get along with many heavyweights or peers for long and now Andy Ruiz Jr is in the crosshairs.

    The Mexican-American won the IBF, IBO, WBA (super) and WBO world heavyweight titles from Anthony Joshua at Madison Square Garden back in June.

    AJ will get his rematch with Ruiz Jr on December 7 in Saudi Arabia, but Tyson Fury is fighting this weekend in Las Vegas against Otto Wallin.

    Ahead of the bout, Fury has called himself an ‘honourary Mexican’ as the fight takes place on a Mexico’s independence weekend.



    Fury moved his bout up four weeks just so he could take this date vacated by Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez, but Ruiz Jr is not impressed.

    Ruiz said on Instagram “Tyson Fury is talking sh*t, he’s representing Mexico – he’s not even Mexican, what kind of sh*t is that?”

    In response, Fury has said: “I just wanna say Happy Birthday to Andy Ruiz. I hope he has a fantastic day. And don’t eat too much cake.”

    It’s amusing, sure. But, a fat joke is quite the line to take from the Gypsy King, especially considering he ballooned over 400 pounds around two years ago.

    Of course, he’s back in prime condition right now and he is expected to defeat Wallin on Saturday before moving on to Deontay Wilder in February.

    Says here they've only sold 1500. Seems 500 fans demanded their money back when it was revealed there would be no open bar at the T-Mobile after all.

    Oi vey can't see this doing well. The Captain America looking fella might as well be left off the posters as they've run promotion like the Fury wild and wacky comedy hour. Stranger things have happened so let's hope Wallin gives it a go for as long as possible. Navarrete making his third defense in four months too.

    “According to Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn”, I have no doubt Fury/Walleye will fail as it should but Hearn has a long history of lying about his rivals numbers. 1500 is next level failure. I mean, probably near that are comped and comped tickets are purchased tickets. The casinos purchase them to give away. I hope literally nobody bought this trash though

    Hearn or no Hearn..... the fight is and will be an abject failure, widely criticized by all of the boxing world, and generating zilch interest from fans.

    THAT....... I would guess... is the main point to be made.

    Unless of course an upset were to occur (same as with AJ-Ruiz) but that will gain interest AFTER the fight rather than before or during it.


    Honestly there's very few big time heavyweight fights which are interesting at present and all involve some mixture of: Wilder, Fury, AJ, Ruiz (gotta throw him in now too), and MAYBE 1 or 2 outsiders


    The division needs Yoka and Hrgovic to get their rounds in and step up to the title contender status, those guys look like they can have some good fights vs the other contenders at present, but none of the title holders just yet I think 5-8 fights (depending on how they go) at the contender level and they'll be ready. They need more rounds though and more experience/adversity during a fight.

    Eddie Hearn blasted by rival promoter over criticism of Tyson Fury vs Otto Wallin

    Frank Warren has fired back at promotional rival Eddie Hearn over his criticism of Tyson Fury vs Otto Wallin.

    Anthony Joshua’s promoter declared earlier this week that nobody is interested in Fury because he’s taking easy fights and even claimed there are low ticket sales for the event.

    In response, Warren told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast: “Well, you know, he’s always got something to say about somebody, hasn’t he? He doesn’t stop.

    “He’s got enough on his own plate at the moment, he’s trying to resurrect his man who got badly exposed and he’s off to Saudi to do it.

    “Always a pound note speaks for him and that’s where he’s going.

    “He’s gotta keep everything crossed, he’s probably looking like Ben Turpin at the moment because he needs his man to win.

    “If he gets beat again next time Joshua, then it’s all over.”



    Warren has previously stated that he is confident Andy Ruiz Jr will repeat his shock victory over AJ when they meet in their December 7 rematch.

    When asked if he stands by his comments, the promoter continued: “I do think that’s the case. He’s not taking the fight at five weeks’ notice.

    “I don’t think he’s gonna look much different physically, but mentally to have had that win and mentally to have done it after only having five weeks’ notice, he’s gonna be in a better place.

    “He’s taken AJ’s best shot, got off the floor, took the fight to him and obviously done him in every department.

    “Out-gamed him, outfought him and then eventually stopped him.

    “That is a big plus, you’re going into that fight knowing you have the armoury, the power, the handspeed to beat him.

    “Joshua’s up against it. And that’s why I don’t understand why they’re in Saudi.

    “If that’d been me I would have had the fight on in the UK so that everybody got behind Joshua, everything was in his favour, the crowd were behind him, the other guy was in hostile territory.

    “And outside the ring you’re doing all you can to get all the plusses for the fighter, but they’ve grabbed the money and gone to Saudi instead.”

    Giving Fury one gimme fight is one thing, but two gimme fights are ridiculous. I understand that he wanted to fight Wilder but Wilder was already fighting Ortiz. Fury should have fought someone with some sort of name recognition. Having two no names opponents in a row is disgraceful.

    Tyson Fury slims down for Otto Wallin fight and continues Mexican theme at Las Vegas weigh-in

    Tyson Fury stuck with the Mexican theme ahead of the country’s Independence Day weekend in Las Vegas after once again donning a lucha libre wrestling mask for the weigh-in at the MGM Grand ahead of Saturday’s heavyweight fight.

    Fury weighed in at 254.4 lbs (18st 1oz), the lightest he had been since he beat Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 (247lbs, just over 17-and-a-half stone).

    It was nine pounds lighter than when he fought Tom Schwarz on his first appearance in Las Vegas in June, and just under the 256.5lbs he was against Deontay Wilder last December. Swede Wallin tipped the scales at 236 (16st 8oz).

    The ‘Gypsy King’ has renamed himself himself ‘El Rey de los Gitanos’ for the MGM Grand clash, to celebrate the anniversary of Mexican Independence, and he once again wore a traditional Lucha Libre wrestling mask at the ceremonial weigh-in.

    Having stepped off the scales Fury then grabbed the microphone to say, in an faux American accent: “In less than 24 hours from now Otto Wallin will feel the fury.

    “Bob, get the steel cage out Bob (veteran American promoter Bob Arun) so this bum doesn’t run away.”



    Fury may well be the overwhelming favourite – he is 25 to one on to win – against a comparative minnow but the 31-year-old does not feel the expectation to put in a performance.

    “I don’t know much about Otto at all and sometimes that’s a good thing as when you know everything about an opponent it doesn’t turn me on like it should do,” said the 31-year-old.

    “I don’t feel any pressure because they are only men with gloves on. I don’t feel pressure from any fight.



    “It is going to be another Tyson Fury roadshow. It is going to be an entertaining fight, an exciting fight.

    “I feel good, I feel fit, I’ve trained really hard. I’m in great shape and the weight is perfect. I feel sharp and rejuvenated and ready for a good fight.”

    Wallin knows no one gives him a chance but is determined to not only make a point but embarrass Fury.

    “They (the crowd) can expect a good boxer. I am well-schooled, I had a good background and I think I have what it takes to cause an upset,” he said.

    Wow... it's on PPV, even.

    We boxing fans whine and complain a lot about shit fights like these... but apparently enough people pay for these shams that they just keep on doing it.

    Well..... at least Otto will now be able to boast that he once fought in a PPV fight.
