    What happened to the old Otto Wallin thread? Yesterday Wallin moved to 15-0 (11 KO) by stopping Irineu Beato Costa Junior in the 3rd round. Most of the post-fight buzz was about swedish ice-hockey legend Peter Forsberg attending the event after being invited by Wallin.

    Couldn't find it either! In an interview with Forsberg he stated what everyone could see; that Wallin made a good match but that the skill difference was to big to make the fight competitive. Good and convincing win anyhow!

    I'd have to agree. IMO, Costa's chin is gone. Doesn't take away from Wallin's performance though

    Wallin and Granat are going to make things ineresting. Granat is the bigger puncher, whereas Wallin is acutally a pretty good boxer from his southpaw stance. They are both BIG boys.

    Rumour has it Sauerland is targeting an event in Otto Wallin's hometown of Sundsvall. I'm sure an showdown between the hometown boy and Granat would sell out any arena in Sundsvall.

    Anyone follow Wallin on instagram? Looks like Fabio Maldonado, former UFC-fighter, with a boxing record of 24-0 (23 KO) wants to fight the swede.

    Put quite the beating on him from what I hear.... Send him to the canvas 5x before the ref finally called it off. Win doesn't mean a whole lot but solid performance from the lad. Those 100+ rounds he sparred with Joshua for the Martin fight have served him well.

    LOL Wallin runs right through him. Maldonados recorded is a padded as it gets. Costa Jr. would be 24-0 with just as many KO's if he went through Maldonados resume. Maldonado isn't even a natural HW, calling a CW is a stretch as well. He could easily campaign at LHW if he shredded some of that excess flab. Decent MMA fighter but a journeyman boxer with a padded record who isn't even top 200 at HW.

    I absolutely agree. From what I remember of Maldonado's MMA-career, he's got a hell of a chin at least.

    At MW-LHW his chin is rock solid.... But he can't stand up to HW shots. Look at what Miocic did to him.

    They have a couple of ice-hockey arenas up there. They also have a big indoor arena for football. Don't know how many people could fit in it though..
