Otto Wallin Braces for Epic Showdown with Anthony Joshua

Wallin Targets Career-Defining Victory on December 23rd

Swedish heavyweight boxer Otto Wallin is set to face one of the world’s top heavyweights, Anthony Joshua, on December 23rd. The much-anticipated bout is part of a super gala event in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, featuring a stellar lineup of the world’s top-ranked heavyweights. Wallin, expressing enthusiasm for the opportunity, said, “This is a very good chance for me, a match that I have been looking forward to for a long time and that I really like.”

Entering the ring with a professional record of 26 wins and one loss, Wallin views the fight against Joshua, who has 26 wins and three losses, as a pivotal moment in his career. Joshua, a 34-year-old Englishman, boasts a decorated career, including Olympic gold as an amateur and a world championship title as a professional. He recently secured a knockout victory against Finnish boxer Robert Helenius in August.

Wallin acknowledged Joshua’s status as a top heavyweight but noted a perceived dip in his confidence. He also mentioned the additional pressure Joshua faces as a former world champion aiming to reclaim the title. Wallin, coming off a recent victory against Gassiev and enjoying a high world ranking, feels confident and ready for the challenge. “After my recent tough victory over Gassiev, which was also confirmed by my now high world ranking, I am full of confidence and look forward to showing it in the ring against AJ. This is a match I deserve and am ready for,” concluded Wallin.
