Otto Wallin continues to bring the verbal fire and has now taken aim at the newest member of Anthony Joshua’s team saying ‘he was fired by Tyson Fury.’
Wallin is stepping up for a big challenge on Saturday night in Saudi Arabia. He faces Joshua on the Day of Reckoning card having built up some good momentum in recent fights.
Since testing Fury and inflicting a cut to his eye that required 47 stitches back in 2019, he has come back from the loss with a run of wins over the likes of Murat Gassiev and Dominick Breazeale.
In the opposite corner, he faces a man on his own mini-run in Joshua who has knocked out Robert Helenius and taken a points win over Jermaine Franklin already this year.
For this third fight in 12 months, though, Joshua will be working with new coach Ben Davison, who was the man in the corner for Fury when he faced Wallin.
Speaking to Boxing Social, Wallin was asked what Davison can bring to Joshua’s game.
“I don’t know Ben Davison that well. He was in the Fury corner for our fight but other than that I haven’t followed him that much.”
He then drilled down into Davison’s record.
“It’s good to remember that after the fight he was fired by Fury, so that’s all I take from it. Before that, Fury got a draw with [Deontay] Wilder, then got a new trainer and knocked Wilder out so he got better when he sacked Davison.”
