Fury braced for 'different challenge'

14th September 2019, 13:47 by Bobbie Jackson

Tyson Fury believes Otto Wallin will offer up a "different challenge" when they square off in Las Vegas on Sunday.

The Brit remains focussed on returning to world title level and is expected to go up against Deontay Wilder for a second time early in the new year.

However, he must avoid a major shock on Sunday when he faces Sweden's Wallin, who is unbeaten in 20 fights.

Fury feels Wallin will offer something completely different to his previous fights but isn't concerned about coming through unscathed.

"It's a different challenge, different opponent, different style and styles do make fights," Fury said.

"This guy's 6'6'', left-handed southpaw. It's probably going to be a different challenge. Every fight is different, not one fight, all fights, is the same.

"So, we approach every fight (with a) different game plan, but when we're in there for the first minute or so, I'll know exactly what to do with Otto Wallin."
