TYSON FURY could fight Otto Wallin again if the Swedish boxer defeats Dillian Whyte at the end of the month.

The WBC champion fought Wallin in Las Vegas back in 2019, winning on points.

But the Swedish fighter inflicted a nasty cut on Fury, just above the right eye

But Wallin proved to be one of Fury‘s toughest opponents, inflicting a serious cut on the Brit above his right eye.

And now, the 30-year-old could force a rematch should he beat Whyte in the WBC interim title clash.

 Promoter Dmitriy Salita believes Wallin gave Fury his biggest test of his professional boxing career so far.

He told Sky Sports: “Out all the great fighters that Tyson Fury beat the one fighter that gave him most trouble, caused most controversy with the cut, who landed more punches than Wladimir Klitschko and Deontay Wilder in their first fights combined is Otto Wallin.

“Otto had two impressive wins since that outing and a win over Whyte would make him the most eligible opponent for Fury and in my mind the second-best heavyweight in the world based on merit.”

Salita believes the Swede is ‘getting better’, but acknowledges Whyte – who is standing in Wallin’s way of a title shot – is no easy task.

He continued: “Otto is still getting better.

“The fight with Whyte is a big test and a massive opportunity to get the rematch with the WBC heavyweight champion.”

Whyte reclaimed the WBC interim belt with a knockout win over Alexander Povetkin earlier this year.

And says he wants to fight Fury next, but is willing to take on ‘dangerous operator’ Wallin first.

Whyte said: “Wallin is a dangerous operator – he pushed Fury all the way.

“I am looking to fight Fury next if everything goes according to plan.

Whyte needs to get past Wallin first to start thinking about fighting Fury

“I’m always up against it, I’m always in hard fights. I’m used to it.

“I could pull out of the Wallin fight just to fight Fury but that isn’t my mindset. I can’t wait around for what Fury is doing.

“My mindset is that I’ve got nothing to lose. I’m not scared to take risks. They see danger in fighting me.”

Fury, unlike Wallin and Whyte, isn’t thinking about his next fight or who it will be against.

The 33-year-old insists he doesn’t ‘need to fight anymore’.

Fury told The Telegraph: “I don’t know what’s going to happen.

“I’ve got one fight left on my contract with Top Rank and ESPN and we’ll see what that is.

“But I’m not thinking about boxing right now. I don’t know how many fights I’ve got left, I don’t know if I need to fight anymore. I don’t know what the future holds.

“I am motivated to get up in the morning, do a little bit of training and enjoy my day. I don’t have any goals in boxing; I have done everything and won everything, the only one to do it in my era.

Fury insists he doesn’t have to fight anymore

“I will always have been the WBC, WBA, WBO, IBF, Ring magazine champion, that will not evaporate in history, but once it is done, it is done – and you cannot get it back.

“Once you are done, it doesn’t matter how many belts you have, who you beat, what your record is.

“You are just another bare bum in the shower and I have always had that opinion.”

Dad John, on the other hand, thinks his son should fight WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight Oleksandr Usyk ONLY.

He told talkSPORT: “He’s gotta go look for Usyk or nothing, in my idea.

“It’s Usyk next, or nothing.

“I wouldn’t bother with the rest of them, they’re not in Tyson’s class.

“Would Dillian Whyte deal with Deontay Wilder?

“No. So why would they wanna put him in with my son and get him knocked out?

“Tyson can’t get up for them kind of fights. For me, I’ve told him, Usyk or don’t bother.”
