BT Sport will broadcast live boxing this evening as Tyson Fury defends his heavyweight championship against Otto Wallin.
The match takes place at Las Vegas, and will be shown exclusively live on BT Sport Box Office.
Fury delivered a second round knockout in his last outing at Vegas’ iconic MGM Grand hotel as he crushed previously undefeated challenger Tom Schwarz with ease.
And with one eye on a long-awaited rematch against reigning WBC king Deontay Wilder in 2020, the 31-year-old will be keen to ensure his undefeated record stays intact as he takes on unbeaten Swede Otto Wallin at the T-Mobile Arena.
Wallin, a 28-year-old from Sundsvall, Sweden, has 20 wins, 13 by knockout, in his 21 professional bouts. His father died of a sudden heart attack shortly before the announcement of tonight’s fight.
Wallin said his father, an amateur boxer and part-time trainer, motivated him to get into boxing, and hopes to use his father’s death as extra motivation to upset the odds and defeat Fury.
The event, which starts at 2am UK time, includes five under card matches: Emanuel Navarrete v Juan Manuel Elorde; Jose Pedraza v Jose Zepeda; Isaac Lowe v Ruben Garcia Hernandez; Felix Valera v Vyacheslav Shrabranskyy; and Carlos Cuadras v Jose Maria Cardenas.
BT Sport Box Office is available on BT TV, Sky, Virgin TV, online and via the BT Sport App. Tyson Fury v Otto Wallin costs £19.95 and can be ordered here.
