Tyson Fury vs Otto Wallin confirmed for September 14 in Las Vegas


Tyson Fury will face unbeaten Swedish heavyweight Otto Wallin at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on September 14.


The Gypsy King has agreed terms with the 28-year-old, who was in the mix to face Anthony Joshua as a late replacement for Jarrell Miller on June 1.


Wallin, who has a perfect 20-0 record with 13 KOs, had a strong amateur career in Sweden and made his US debut against Nick Kisner in April.


The fight ended as a no contest after an accidental head clash in the first round damaged Kisner, but Wallin has landed a shot at Fury.


After demolishing German prospect Tom Schwarz in June, Fury has opted for a similar type of opponent who is far from a household name in the second fight of his $100m ESPN deal.


Wallin, a 6ft 5inch southpaw with a 78 inch reach, will be facing by far the biggest clash of his career, which has featured wins against largely unknown fighters in Scandinavia.
