  • Otto Wallin believes he should be next in line to face Tyson Fury if he returns

  • However, he left the Gypsy King with a gaping wound just below his right eye
  • Fury needed 47 stitches after the fight – which took place before is Wilder bout

Otto Wallin says he should be the one to fight Tyson Fury after the Gypsy King revealed his plans to return to the ring to face former world title-challenger Dereck Chisora.

Wallin faced Fury back in 2019. He lost the fight via an unanimous points decision but he came close to causing an upset after leaving the Gypsy King with a gaping wound just below his right eye. 

The Swedish heavyweight was expected to be nothing more than a loosener for Fury in preparation for his rematch with Deontay Wilder but he left the Gypsy King needing 47 stitches.

As a result, Wallin believes he should be the one to face Fury and insists he is a ‘better fighter’ now than he was in 2019. He also hinted that a fight between Fury and Chisora would be boring as he said it would not be ‘competitive’. 

Speaking to Lord Ping, Wallin said: ‘I deserved it with my performance in the first fight. I landed more punches on Fury than anybody has in his whole career. 

‘I cut him badly in two places and the fight could have easily been stopped. In fact, if I had those cuts the fight would for sure have been stopped.

‘When I fought Fury I had never been on that level before and I had only fought one round in 18 months prior to that fight. 

‘Now I’ve gained experience in fighting Fury and winning four other fights after that one took place.’

He went on to slam a potential bout between Fury and Chisora – claiming it would not be a competitive fight given their history. 

‘I’m a better fighter now than what I was in 2019,’ he said. ‘It’s simply not a competitive fight [between Fury and Chisora].

‘Fury has already beaten Chisora twice and once stopped him. You can’t compare my fight with Fury with Chisoras two fights.’ 

Wallin’s comments come after Fury took to social media to call out Chisora – claiming his former opponent had been sent a contract for a prospective third fight.  

‘This one goes out to Derek the  s**thouse Chisora, you’re running from the trilogy. You call yourself war but you should yourself chicken, because you’re running from a trilogy for a career-highest payday. Get the f***ing contract signed and stop being a s**thouse.’ Fury said.

The Gypsy King has twice fought Chisora as a professional, winning the first bout via a lopsided judges’ decision in 2011.

He then went on to face the Del Boy again in 2014 – forcing him to retire on his stool after the tenth round. 

Though the rivals had reconciled following their second meeting, tensions began rising once more earlier this year after it emerged that Fury was planning on coming out of retirement to make a return to the ring.

In an interview with iFL TV last month, Chisora said: ‘Listen Frank Warren and the Gypsy King’s posse, just tell me when and where or what time and I am there. I just want to fight, if you are a fighter you should fight everybody out there. It is just business it would be a great fight with Tyson.’
