Saturday night Tyson Fury won by unanimous decision. But there is a new top heavy weight in the division Otto Wallin. The unknown heavyweight gave the unbeaten lineal champion a tough bloody 12 round fight. During the 3rd Wallin’s punch split open a deep cut above Tyson’s right eye. The cut was so deep it was reported that it needed 47 stitches. Fury was allowed to continue the fight though he was bleeding profusely. The following day we caught up with Otto.
Jenny Sushe: “A lot of people were wondering who is Otto Wallin. Some were also questioning the fight. But now you have established yourself as one of the Top Heavy Weights in the division. Overnight everyone knows who you are. How does that make you feel? What’s going through your head?”
Otto Wallin: “Feels good to get the recognition. I’ve been training a long time finally got a chance to show a good fight.”
JS: “You and Tyson were on an interview and he predicted a knock-out victory. Tyson won but how good does that feel to give him such a hard time in the ring and to prove yourself?”
Otto Wallin: “Tyson is not known as a puncher I didn’t feel like he was going to knock me out. Feels good, I wanted a victory. We worked for a victory, but I’ll come back stronger”
JS: “Have you called anyone back home in SundsVall?”
