Otto Wallin

Fury to fight Wallin in Las Vega

Top Rank vice president Carl Moretti revealed earlier this month that an agreement had been reached for the former world heavyweight champion to step into the ring with the 28-year-old Wallin.

It was confirmed on Tuesday that unbeaten Swede Wallin (20-0) will get a chance to claim the Briton's lineal title in Nevada next month.

Fury brutally knocked Tom Schwarz out at the same venue in June and will be a strong favourite to add another victory to his record, which shows 28 wins and a draw.
