Tyson Fury insists says he does not have his mind on a world heavyweight title rematch with Deontay Wilder, and is fully focused on his next fight little-known Otto Wallin in Las Vegas.

The 31-year-old meets the relatively unknown Otto Wallin in a non-title bout on Saturday but with Fury already having claimed a deal has been agreed for a Wilder rematch most people are looking well beyond this weekend.

Fury, however, is concentrating on getting this one out of the way rather than speculating about another meeting with the WBC world champion after their controversial draw last December.


Wilder v Wallin: Big Fight Details

  • When: Saturday September 14 (Sunday UK time)
  • Where: T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas
  • Main event time: Around 0400 BST UK time
  • TV Channel & Cost: £19.95 on BT Sport Box Office (full details further down)
  • Records: Fury (28-0-1, 20 KOs), Wallin (20-0, 13 KOs)
  • Sky Bet Odds: Fury 1/25, Wallin 12/1

"I am not interested in Deontay Wilder or any of the rest of the heavyweight division. I am interested in Otto Wallin on Saturday night," said Fury, who turned up for his public workout on the casino floor of the MGM Grand dressed in a Mexican wrestler's mask and plans a Mexican-themed ring walk as the country celebrates its independence day anniversary this weekend.

"I have no interest in February at all. It is all about Saturday night, it is all about the Gypsy King. It is not about February, or Christmas or New Year or any other day - it is all about Saturday night in Las Vegas.

"I have no interest in future fights: one day day a time in my life, one fight at at time, one hour at a time."

While the world is awaiting the Wilder rematch after its unsatisfying finish last year, Fury, not lacking in self-confidence, is adamant he can take on all-comers in the division.

"I can defeat them all with one hand," he said. "I have lightning reflexes for a giant. I am a giant of a heavyweight, there has never been a heavyweight like me and there has never been a heavyweight who can move like that.

"I'm a freak of nature, I defy every law of gravity, it shouldn't be possible for a man of my height and weight to move like that.

"I can beat them all."

Wallin arrives in Las Vegas with an unbeaten record in 20 fights, which includes 13 knockouts, but the 28-year-old has not fought at anywhere near the highest level so remains something of an unknown stepping up into Fury's realm.

Fury claims he himself knows nothing about the Swede.

"I have no idea, we will find out on Saturday night. I don't really care, it is not about what your opponent can do, it is about what the Gypsy King can do," he said.

Wallin accepts he is making a step up in class but he is determined to seize his chance.

"He is the best and I want to fight the best so I'm going to take this opportunity with both hands. I am here to win."
