Tyson Fury vs. Otto Wallin fight results: ‘Gypsy King’ survives massive cut to earn decision win

If there was ever a fight where the final scorecards didn’t tell the complete story, Tyson Fury defending his lineal heavyweight championship on Saturday over Otto Wallin was it.

Fury (29-0-1, 20 KOs) overcame a pair of nasty cuts above his right eye and survived being rocked in a shaky final round to outpoint Wallin (20-1, 13 KOs) via unanimous decision at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Although the judges’ scores of 116-112, 117-111 and 118-110 turned out to be wide in Fury’s favor because of his dominant power punching in the second half, the ringside doctor closely monitored a right eye that was initially cut in Round 3 and appeared just a hard punch or two away from forcing the fight to be stopped throughout.

“I am a Gypsy warrior and this is Mexican Independence Day. Come on Mexico!” said Fury, who entered the ring wearing a sombrero while dressed in colors of the Mexican flag. “It was a good performance and I got a good 12 rounds in. Otto Wallin was a tough Swede. Blood, guts, heart and all was shown tonight.”

The urgency of the cut quickly turned Fury from his default slick boxing style into that of an aggressive puncher who repeatedly stung the 28-year-old Wallin down with body shots and looping hooks. Fury also showed a ton of grit and used his size well in close to lean on Wallin and wear him down.

“I didn’t get the scorecards but I did everything I could,” Wallin said. “I tried my best and Tyson was a great champion.”
