Otto Wallin has called on Tyson Fury to fight him again.
The former WBC world heavyweight title challenger lost on points to ‘The Gypsy King’ in 2019.
Wallin forced a cut on Fury at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
And despite being on the wrong end of a unanimous decision by margins of 118-110, 117-111 and 116-112 against Fury, he has put his name in the hat to fight him again.
When speaking to Lordping, Wallin said:
“I deserved it with my performance in the first fight.”
Fury was last seen between the ropes at Wembley Stadium in April when he stopped Dillian Whyte, the number one-ranked contender, inside six rounds.
In the aftermath, the 33-year-old claimed he was retiring from the sport and insisted that a pot of $500million and a fight with Oleksandr Usyk, the WBA Super, IBF, WBO and IBO champion, would be the only thing to tempt him to lace up the gloves again – unless a fight against Anthony Joshua at Wembley materialises.
However, a fight with Derek Chisora – who Fury had a public fallout with recently – has been mooted of late, with discussions having taken place and Fury having told ‘Del Boy’ to get his team to call him to iron out the deal for the pair to fight for a third time, with Fury having beaten Chisora in 2011 and 2014 respectively.
But Wallin believes it should be him in the opposite corner to Fury when the former unified champion decides to make a return.
“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.”
“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.
The Swede dismissed the idea of a Fury-Chisora fight as a mismatch:
“I’m a better fighter now than what I was then and 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 Chisora’s two fights.”
