CALIFORNIA, USA — Before his much-anticipated title rematch with Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury will try and stave off the rust with a heavyweight prelude to his bout with the American in early 2020.

“I don’t know much about him. I know he’s from Sweden, I know he’s 28 years old, and he’s a 6’5” southpaw. 16 and a half to 17 stone, he’s got a good jab, was an International amateur boxer and turned pro in about 2013,” said Fury in BT Sport’s No Filter interviewer.

Currently on his training camp in Spain, the “Gypsy King” is not at all concerned with his next foe come September 14 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The British Fury, in 2015, won the unified WBA, IBF, WBO, IBO, The Ring magazine, and lineal heavyweight titles by defeating long-reigning world champion Wladimir Klitschko in Germany. 

The victory earned him Fighter of the Year and Upset of the Year awards by The Ring.

He will face seemingly unheralded Einar Otto Wallin which presents his undefeated record of 20-0-0 with 12 KOs.

The 28-year-old Swede is a 6’5” southpaw with a reach of 78 inches. His last opponent being Nick Kisner back in April this year. That’s about it for Fury’s next matchup. A fact which Fury admits all that he can really say about the heavyweight from Sweden who made his debut back in 2013. 

Some pundits put it that this fight is an easy way up the ladder for Fury who will be expecting a sort of an exorbitant warmup when he faces the unblemished Swede. 

And is an ugly affirmation of the limited options in the heavyweight division. Let’s just see if Wallin’s weight is worth more than what is advertised.
