    Otto Wallin makes Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury prediction following Middle East talks

    Tyson Fury‘s former opponent Otto Wallin believes the Gypsy King has to be favourite in a potential mega-fight with Anthony Joshua. Wallin gave Fury a competitive fight when they clashed back in September but ultimately lost on points.

    Wallin opened up a severe 47-stitch gash above Fury’s right eye during the bout and continued to press the action throughout.

    But Fury managed to hang on and do enough to claim victory.

    Fury has gone on to win the WBC world title from Deontay Wilder, while Joshua also became a two-time champion with his victory over Andy Ruiz Jr.

    The pair are now reportedly in talks for a huge December fight in the Middle East.

    But Wallin makes it advantage Fury, noting his boxing skills may be too much for Joshua.

    “I gotta say right now, I think Fury is the best,” the Swede told Seconds Out.

    “Joshua, if they fight, I think it’s gonna be a great fight you know. Joshua (is) a dangerous guy, big puncher.

    “So anything can happen. I think Fury has a lot of tools, he’s a good boxer and his boxing skills can make it hard for Joshua.”

    Wallin previously stated that he also believes Wilder would seriously struggle in a third fight with Fury.

    “I think it’s going to be very difficult for Wilder,” he said.

    “He’s 34 years old. And I think he lacks some fundamentals.

    “And that’s not easy to pick up at that age. Fury is going to be a big favourite to me.

    “I think that he’s discovering some new sides of himself now with his new trainer.

    “That seemed to be a good move for him, especially against Wilder.

    “I think that Fury is going to be a big favourite to win that fight.”
