Tyson Fury called out for rematch by Otto Wallin – who gave Brit scare with huge cut – as he prepares to fight Breazeale

TYSON FURY has been called out for a rematch by the man who caused him to have FORTY-SEVEN stitches on his forehead.

Otto Wallin is back in action on February 20 when he fights former heavyweight world title challenger Dominic Brezeale.

Otto Wallin took a bloodied Tyson Fury to points in 2019

And the Swede is hoping a star performance will put him back into world title contention himself – and a chance rematch against the Gypsy King.

In September 2019 Fury took on Wallin in what many presumed was a ‘warm-up’ for the Deontay Wilder rematch.

But Fury was taken all the way to points by the gritty 30-year-old and left with a horror gash above his eye from a head clash that required 47 stitches.

Now Wallin fancies round two against the reigning WBC king.

He told Sky Sports: “My dream is to fight and win the world title so for right now I just have to keep fighting and improving so when I get the shot I’ll be ready to grab it with both hands.

“The Tyson Fury rematch is not my top priority but I truly hope I get another shot at him.

“I just have to keep fighting and winning and show that I’m worthy of a rematch and when the time comes I’m ready to go in and beat him.”

In the opposite corner on February 20 will be Breazeale – a man who has only lost to Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder in his career.

Meanwhile talks are continuing to set up the undisputed super-fight between Fury and Joshua.

And Wallin is predicting his former opponent to triumph if the two Brits actually meet.

The 21-1 boxer added: “They are the two best heavyweights in the world right now and we need that fight.

“I’ve been watching AJ’s fight with Breazeale lately and AJ has got a great style and he’s got all the tools to beat Fury but I’m not sure how much AJ trusts himself.

“I think Fury has a strong mind and good confidence and sometimes that’s more important than anything. That’s why I believe Fury would win.”
