  • Fury vs Wallin goes Saturday, September 14th at 11 PM ET
  • Will Fury maintain his status as the lineal heavyweight champion?
  • Can Wallin shock the world and shake up the heavyweight class? 

Fury vs Wallin is the main event on what promises to be a quality night of boxing in Las Vegas.

The twelve round contest pits a man some regard as one of the best heavyweights of our generation, if not the best, against a surging prospect. Fury is the lineal heavyweight champion and proudly represents the century-plus lineage of the title.

This great night of fights is broadcast on ESPN+ and takes place at the sparkling T-Mobile Arena. The odds for Fury vs Wallin and the breakdown of what will happen inside the ring is below.

Fighter Odds
Tyson Fury -3000
Otto Wallin +1100

Odds taken 09/11/19.

Tyson Fury’s roller-coaster boxing saga has enamored even casual fans of the sport. A man who beat Klitschko at the height of his powers, fell into a drug-addled period of contemplating suicide every day, and then got himself back to a point where many regard him as the present-day best heavyweight on earth.

The remarkable comeback story of the lineal heavyweight champion adds another chapter when Wallin stands across from Fury on September 14th. I just don’t see him standing for the entire fight with Tyson.

Fury Reasserts That He’s The Gypsy King

Fury vs Wallin is similar in a lot of ways to the upcoming Ortiz vs Wilder rematch.  A story of both Wilder and Fury taking fights with differing foes as a means of adding more hype to Fury vs Wilder II. That rematch is tentatively slated for February, but boxing fans are chomping at the bit and want it now. Who can blame them after the fireworks that took place the first time.

That impending rematch adds an extra dimension of pressure here though. If Fury loses to Wallin, the Wilder fight fades away at least for the short term. Wallin has collected some WBA continental and EBU European Union and Swedish hardware but this is his first foray into a world title caliber fight. Fury’s in-ring accomplishments coupled with his inimitable charisma can create hype for any fight he’s in though.

A Fury-Wilder rematch is something that boxing fans are clamoring for. The initial fight provided a lot of pugilistic drama but many in the boxing community deemed the draw a controversial decision.

Fury vs Wallin reads like a warm-up fight to eventually lead to that big money tilt down the line. The man Tyson Fury was named after can provide some insights into why this formula doesn’t always pan out smoothly. Mike Tyson is one of the most well-regarded fighters of all time but had some significant losses against foes who were seen as warm-ups in the lead-ups (ex: Kevin McBride, Danny Williams, and Buster Douglas). While Fury is the big favorite, history indicates his likely triumph is far from assured.

Fury vs Wallin Tale of the Tape

28-0-1 Record 20-0
20 Knockouts 13
6’9 Height 6’5.5
85″ Reach 78″
Wladimir Klitschko, Dereck Chisora, Christian Hammer Significant Wins Adrian Granat, Oleksiy Mazikin, Raphael Zumbano
orthodox Stance southpaw

I can see Fury using his defensive savvy and elusiveness to frustrate Wallin a tremendous amount. This frustration will likely cause Wallin to get a bit desperate and Fury will exploit the openings those moments provide him. I can see Fury securing a TKO win inside of seven rounds.

Pick: Fury (-3000)
