Otto Wallin has had plenty to say ahead of facing Anthony Joshua this weekend, and has now sent the Brit a warning in the final days before the first bell.
He has beaten the likes of former cruiserweight champion Murat Gassiev and Dominic Breazeale since then and now fancies his chances against Joshua, who is still rebuilding after back to back losses to Oleksandr Usyk.
Speaking to talkSPORT Boxing, Wallin claimed that he will have answers no matter what Joshua brings.
“I think that he’s going to get more and more uncomfortable. If he comes out and tries to box, it’s gunna be hard for him. Even if he comes out being aggressive he’s going to get hit and start to doubt himself.”
Wallin then warned ‘AJ’ that he was a better boxer, and if he opts for a war ‘he’s not ready.’
“If he comes out to box I’m the better boxer and he’s going to get hit. I know he doesn’t like getting hit. He cares a lot about what people think of him and what he looks like when he fights.
“If he comes out being aggressive he might hit me but I will hit him too and it’ll be a war and I don’t think he’s ready for that. He’s too fragile for that. So I think it will be really interesting a great fight. I have nothing to lose.”
A win for Wallin puts him at the top table in the heavyweight division. Should Joshua come out victorious, a bout with Deontay Wilder is reportedly right around the corner.
