OTTO WALLIN versus Anthony Joshua is the “perfect fight” for both stars, says the Swede’s promoter.

Wallin, 32, left Tyson Fury needing 47 stitches in their 2019 bloodbath in a bout that raised his profile despite suffering defeat via points.

Eddie Hearn is currently searching for Anthony Joshua’s next opponent

Otto Wallin’s promoter is adamant his man is the ideal opponent for AJ

Since then the heavyweight has racked up four-straight victories in between a cancelled bout with Dillian Whyte.

Rydell Booker was his last victim in May as he recorded a unanimous decision victory.

Wallin would love a rematch with Fury, who is now the WBC champion, but the Gypsy King is instead closing in on a unification bout with Oleksandr Usyk.

That has led to claims that talks are underway with Eddie Hearn over a potential showdown with fellow Brit boxer AJ.

Joshua, 33, is expected to return in March after suffering back-to-back setbacks against Usyk and Hearn is in the process of matching him with an opponent.

Now Wallin’s promoter, Dmitry Salita, has explained why he feels a showdown between his man, who has been defeated once in 26 bouts, and the former two-time world champ would be ideal for all concerned.

Speaking to VegasInsider, he said: “Both Otto and Joshua want to fight Tyson Fury.

“Otto gave Tyson the hardest fight of his career landing more punches against him than Klitchko and Wilder 1 put together.


“Joshua wants to warrant a fight with Tyson after losing to Usyk.

“I believe that Otto vs Joshua is the perfect fight for both.

“Eddie is attaching Joshua to lots of big names, we’ll see how serious Joshua is based on the opponent he selects next.”

Salita insists that AJ is still a “special fighter” but is adamant it would be his man with his arm raised in victory after a potential clash.

He added: “It’s (AJ vs Otto) a very interesting fight.

“Joshua is obviously one of the elite guys in the division. Does he still have what is necessary to compete at an elite level?

“Otto wants to be heavyweight champ and showed he is world class in his fight vs Tyson and subsequent quality wins after that.

“I pick my guy Otto to win by UD. Otto is smart, focused, has a very good chin and is still very fresh. He did not have too many fights where he took punishment.

“His only loss is a controversial one to one of the greatest heavyweights of our generation.

“Joshua was a unified heavyweight champ, Olympic Gold Medalist. He is definitely a special fighter.

“Based on the last several performances it looks like he may be losing a step in some things.

“I did see some technical improvement with Garcia which was made in a short amount of time. We will see if he is still legitimate based on the level and performance on his next opponent.”
