    Otto wallin v Dominick breazeale
    With everyone waiting for dillian whytes rematch with Alexander povetkin and the long awaited mega showdown with Anthony Joshua and Tyson fury we see this weekend, two of the contenders who have shared the ring with the two best heavyweights in the world. Otto wallin came to the public's attention when fighting Tyson fury in September 2019 where he badly cut the gypsy king and made it a very tough night for the man who is regarded as the best in the world. Facing otto is Dominick breazeale who comes in boasting 18 ko wins out of his 20 wins and his only losses came against deontay wilder and Anthony Joshua. He came up short against AJ in the 7th after showing heart and a good chin. Against wilder he got hit with one of the best right hands you could see this decade and was knocked out. Otto wallin from Sweden has only lost the once (against fury) but hasnt really beaten anyone of any real note, Saturday night will be his best win to date if he pulls it off. Dominick is the bigger man and hits harder but footwork and handspeed is with the southpaw wallin. Could be a case of boxer v puncher and my pick is otto wallin to win on points maybe having a shaky moment or two

    I used to write articles for a magazine and wrote a few the other night in like ten mins so a bit shabby just want some feedback on here of what you think of my small previews for fights. This is the smallest one I did

    I'm looking forward to this. There are a lot of good Tier 2 and Tier 3 matches to make at HW, and this is one of them.

    Wallin on Points or late stoppage. Breazeale is a late starter the later the fight goes on the higher his chances are. He's a plodder with little defense who just goes forward trying to land a big shot. He's got decent power and if he lands on Wallin flush theirs a chance he puts him out or drops him. Wallins also a front foot fighter but he uses angles and his defense while not perfect is definitely a lot more present than Dominics. I expect the fight to be pretty decent. I don't see Wallin getting the KO early he has power but not one-shot knockout power IMO. I see him winning the early rounds and going to the body. In the later rounds, it's possible he stops Breazeale if he works him right. Breazeale has a shot but I see Wallin winning.
    Id put the odds at 60/40 or 65/35 for Wallin.
    This is a good crossroads fight for each of them and winner should start fighting people in top 15 range and the loser will likely become a gatekeeper.

    Brezeale is too tough and Wallin too light a hitter to take out Breazeale, unless Brezeale walks into something stupid late fight.

    Wallin to edge the first half, Brezeale some success mid fight late but Wallin wins a fairly clear decision.

    If Wallin dispatches him then all eyes on Wallin for the future.

    Agreed I think a points win by Wallin is the most likely outcome but a stoppage is possible It will be telling if Breazels chin is the same as it was before the Wilder and Joshua fights Breazeale even in his wins in between the wilder and Joshua fight took a lot of damage. Still, a points win is more likely than a stoppage at this point.

    Wallin on points, Breazeale has a terrible defense and Wallin has a solid skillset that will be enough to beat Breazeale,
    after this fight I would love to see Wallin vs Hrgovic.

    In the heavyweight division if you want to look good, call Arreola, Breazeale, and Price .

    The content of your preview was spot on. For that I give you kudos! Writing structure hits me at least with a wall of text. Especially on forums like this one, I’ve found people tend to space out when they see a wall of text.

    A little separation, like this one from the sentence above, can go a long way.

    Thanks for feedback mate. Yes I definitely agree on here but it's more about my article as I used to write for a paper and that was about 15 years ago so just starting to do it again and just whipped up this one and one about the Kelly fight

    I think Wallin get too much credit for his effort against an unmotivated Fury that took Wallin too lightly. Wallin is a decent boxer but nothing special (typical Euro fight with good technique but lacks power), Breazeale is not the greatest either but tough and hits pretty hard with good pressure. Breazeale should win, possibly by a late stoppage.
