    I'll be rooting for Wallin, but the deck is stacked against him in this one.

    Whyte will have the judges and ref on his side, and he may even be allowed to use PEDs by the dodgy UK boxing authorities.

    I am backing Whyte in this one.

    Whyte’s major weakness these days is his cheen, but then Wallin doesn’t punch holes in your child’s paper-mache homework.

    If it goes the full 12 then more than likely Whyte gets the decision.

    So you have to fancy Whyte, as he has a fighters heart and is as game as they come.

    I can see why Wallin is being backed here though.

    I think Wallin will likely go for Whyte. He's been knocked down by Joshua, Povetkin and RIVAS.

    If Rivas can do it, Wallin can. I wouldn't put it past anyone to knock out Whyte.

    But I think Wallin will get knocked down at some point, and Whyte will get a decision. I suspect a similar fight to Whyte vs Parker.

    OTTO via KO is 4/1

    OTTO was landing at will on Fury, bust his face up, took him to war.

    Whyteleafe has no defence and a glass jaw.

    I'm in.

    2 more weeks for another good fight. Don't know why Dillian is risking this before the big shot he's been waiting for all along.

    The one-way rematch clause is bad for boxing.
    IF Wallin can beat Whyte he clearly deserves to be put forward to a Fury rematch, or some other fight that will progress him.
    More for the sake of the division.
    We have too many inactive HWs, and rematch clauses just slow down the division further.

    It's ridiculous there's a rematch clause for a mandatory spot isn't it? Champions are the only people that should be allowed that privilege.

    I'm not sure even champions should be allowed it.

    The worst case was Whyte-Povetkin 1, which was promoted as a "final eliminator".
    The whole point of an eliminator is that the loser is eliminated.

    Agreed. But I think champs should be allowed it if they want. Lesser fighters can get lucky or just have a 1 in a life time night.

    A rematch can prove it wasn't a fluke.

    What are you all doing? Whyte has already beaten better people than Wallin and has way more experience, people always seem to pick against Whyte whenever he fights, because he look sloppy and uncoordinated, he can box and he can fight on the inside and he gets the job done most of the time and also beats people way more 'coordinated' people than himself

    He did lose to an ancient Povetkin though.
    And he barely scraped past Parker, assisted by his headbutts.
    And he was lucky to get the decision against Chisora in their 1st fight.
    The Rivas fight was close and he was floored in it.

    We don't actually know how good Wallin is. He hasn't beaten anyone but he only lost to Fury, who is better than Whyte, of course.

    If you don't think the Parker fight was close, I don't know what to say. That fight was very close.

    The Rivas and Parker fights weren't close and he was beating Povetkin up, there is no shame in losing to a sheer moment of brilliance, that could've happened to anyone with someone like Povetkin who is a master of setting up knockout punches

    After I saw Furys attitude, I want Whyte to beat Wallin and became mandatory so that Fury have nowhere to go. Either retire or fight Whyte.
