Britain's Tyson Fury, who opened to the left eyebrow in the third round, managed to defeat Swede Otto Wallin after a heavyweight fight at "Rocky" on Saturday in Las Vegas ( Nevada).
Fury, 31, a former WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight champion, won a unanimous decision by the judges (116-112 / 117-111 / 118-110) after 12 rounds in which he once again demonstrated its ability to reverse a bad situation.
He scored his 29th win, including 20 before the limit, for a draw, and inflicted Wallin's first setback in 22 bouts.
He who is nicknamed the "King of the Gypsies", who was hoping to finish faster in the ring against this opponent a priori widely within his reach, now waiting to find the American Deontay Wilder, WBC champion of the queen category.
Ten months ago the two boxers had drawn. Their appointment is already scheduled for February 22, 2020.
