, Tyson Fury’s old rival Otto Wallin ‘in talks to fight Anthony Joshua’ as Battle of Britain hopes collapse

ANTHONY JOSHUA is reportedly in talks to face Tyson Fury’s former opponent Otto Wallin.

The Brit, 32, suffered a second defeat in a row and third of his professional career back in August when Oleksandr Usyk defeated him in their rematch in Saudi Arabia.

Joshua is expected to return to the ring in December

Wallin’s only defeat in 25 professional bouts came against Fury

Joshua’s loss left him without any world heavyweight title belts as Usyk retained his IBF, WBA and WBO straps, while Fury holds the WBC.

Yet despite his poor bargaining position, AJ was surprisingly offered the chance to fight Fury in an all-British clash on December 3.

Joshua agreed to a 60/40 split in favour of The Gypsy King, but negotiations then broke down after Fury set a deadline for the fight to be signed.

When it wasn’t, he declared he was moving on to other opponents.

Fury now appears set to take on Derek Chisora in a trilogy bout in Cardiff on December 3.

Meanwhile, Wallin, who lost to Fury by unanimous decision in September 2019, has claimed his team have been contacted by Joshua’s representatives ahead of a potential clash.

Speaking to iDBoxing, the Swedish heavyweight, 31, said: “They’ve been in touch, Dmitry [Salita] and Eddie Hearn have talked about it.

“I don’t know what the latest is now, but I know they’ve spoken before about it and I think Dmitry was told that they were going to wait for the Fury and Joshua negotiations.

“I haven’t got any update lately, but I would love that fight, that would be really good for me I think and I know Joshua pretty well, he knows me and that would be a good fight.”

Joshua’s expected return date is December 17 as he searches for a first win in two years.

He has lost three of his last five fights – with wins against Andy Ruiz Jr and Kubrat Pulev coming among defeats to Ruiz and Usyk twice.

Wallin has a record of 24 wins and one defeat – with that blemish coming against Fury.

  • Techniques for punching
  • Guarding techniques
  • Footwork
  • Stance
  • Movement of the body
  • Defense
  • Combination
  • Rotation

Punching Techniques

There are seven types: Left Hook (right hook), Right Hook (uppercut), Cross (cross), Straight, Overhand, Underhand. Each punch is unique. Some punches are more powerful than others. For example, an uppercut requires great force. On the other hand, a straight punch requires less power but it is faster than other punches.

There are also many combinations. These are combinations made up of several punches that can be used together to achieve one goal. An entire combination could have several parts. For example, a left hook followed by a right cross will cause damage to the opponent’s jaw.

Guard Techniques

To defend himself from being attacked, a boxer uses his entire body. He does this by using his legs, arms, elbows, hands, knees and feet.


Boxers should use their legs to defend against kicks. He raises his leg when he is hit with a kick and then moves away from the opponent. If the attacker is coming from the front, he will bend at the knees to avoid getting kicked on either side. However, if the attack comes from behind, he stands up straight and blocks the kick with his foot.


Because elbow strikes inflict a lot of pain, they are very effective. You can either deliver an elbow strike directly, or indirectly. Directly refers to hitting your opponent with the forearm, while indirect means you hit him using another part of your arms.

Boxers use their hands to block incoming blows. To do so, they raise their fists above their head and move them towards the direction of the attack. The attacker’s fist is then in their face.


When receiving a blow to the stomach, abdomen or chest, a boxer should bend his knees to absorb the impact. Knee strikes can be used to defend yourself.


If he is being attacked, a boxer must take a step back and counter-attack. This allows him to put distance between himself, his opponent, and the ring. In addition, when delivering a counter-attack, a boxer should keep his balance.


To box effectively, a boxer must establish a stance. The way he defends himself will be determined by his stance. It dictates how he places his body and faces his opponent. There are many stances available to boxers. These are some of our most favorite:

  • Low stance
  • High stance
  • Southpaw stance
  • Western stance

Body Movement

The timing of each punch determines the effectiveness of a combination. A good combination starts with a strong punch and ends with a weak one.


Sparring is an exercise session to improve boxing skills. Sparring is a training session that helps a boxer train his mind and body. In conclusion, the purpose of sparring is to learn how to fight and not get hurt.
