Lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (28-0-1, 20 KOs) returns to the ring tonight (Saturday, September 14th) at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Brit will take on unbeaten Swede Otto Wallin (20-0-1 NC, 13 KOs). It is expected that Fury will rematch WBC champion Deontay Wilder (41-0-1, 40 KOs) in early 2020, but Fury has to first beat Wallin and Wilder has to take care of his rematch with Luis Ortiz.
Is Wallin any better than Tom Schwarz? In theory yes, and he has higher upside, but he’s still not been tested by any top-15 heavyweights. This looks like a mismatch on paper and probably will be in practice.
There is a title fight in the co-main event, with Emanuel Navarrete (28-1, 24 KOs) defending his WBO junior featherweight title against Juan Miguel Elorde (28-1, 15 KOs) of The Philippines.
ESPN+ will broadcast the entire card at 7:30 PM ET/4:30 PM PT, with the main card at 11 PM ET/8 PM PT. Those in the United Kingdom can watch Fury vs. Wallin on BT Sport Box Office PPV at 2 AM local time.
Bloody Elbow will have live coverage and results updates for the main event.
