    As dissapppinting as this is for Fury, this is definetly the fight that’ll prove whether Wallin is contender material or not.

    Oh wow! Credit to him for stepping up! There's been a lot of talk about beeing ready for titles and AJ, Fury, etc. But I believed it was only hype, judging from the BJ Flores kind of opposition. That hes been (supposed to) fighting.

    Wallin is getting trashed on the general, by people never seen him fight. I'd hold Wallin over the likes of Martin, Schwartz and others, but he's not American and have a pretty tactical approach to his fights, so no KO artist. Which probably is why he has no real chance again Tyson. He can't knock him out, he's smaller, and even though he's a smart technical boxer that is what makes Fury the best HW in the world (when fit). But I think it will be a fun fight, since neither really hit that hard and they both like to box (not meaning slugging).

    Fury by TKO in the second half of the fight. But ballsy move from Wallins side, I hope and think he'll surprise a lot of people.

    I’d also favour him over Schwarz, and if Fury from the Seferi fight shows up, he may well find himself behind on the cards about half way through.

    Even if Wallin makes it hard for Fury to box from the range and forces him to slug it out, It’ll be a moral victory.

    Man, I'm obviously biased towards Wallin. To beat Fury is no small task and the world doesn't expect that from the young Swede but I really hope that my man goes out there and implements a solid game plan to prove that he belongs at this level.

    On a side note, a lot of people complain about the way match ups are done in boxing but look at Wallin. He's basically getting the opportunity of a life time without taking any serious risk before this fight. In all honesty, as a fan I'm nothing short of extremely happy for the guy.

    Great fight from Wallin, do think he would have been ko'd if it wasn't for the cut

    My man fought his heart out. I was ringside and the crowd was going crazy in the 12th. It looked like it was going to be over around the 10th or 11th but he fought through it and came out blasting in the 12th. That impressed the hell out of me.
