Fury came out victorious on all three judges scorecards: 116-112, 117-111 and 118-110. For majority of the bout, he however had to deal with a cut above right eye received in the third round.

Ultimately, Tyson Fury, 31, remained undefeated and updated his record to 29-0-1, 20 KO. Mid June he stopped Tom Schwarz in the second round to take WBO Intercontinental heavyweight title.

Otto Wallin, 28, suffered the first defeat in his professional boxing career and dropped to 20-1, 1 NC, 13 KO.

In his next outing British heavyweight is expected to take on Deontay Wilder (41-0-1, 40 KO) for the second time. The rematch is reportedly set for February 23 (AEST). The pair first met last December at Staples Center in Los Angeles, where after twelve rounds the contest ended in a split draw.

“Deontay Wilder, I want you next bum,” Fury said post fight. “All preparation is good. This is me fourth fight back and got me in good preparation for the big boy, the ole ‘Bronze Bomber,’ the big dosser.”

Prior to that Wilder is expected to face Luis Ortiz in defense of his WBC Heavyweight title. In his previous bout in May he stopped Dominic Breazeale in the first round, which followed a split draw with Fury.
