Wallin set for tune-up Friday in NH

WBO ##3, WBC #9 heavyweight contender Otto Wallin (24-1, 14 KOs) will return to action for his first fight of 2023, as he takes on Helaman Olguin (9-4-1, 4 KOs) in an eight-round fight this Friday from Castleton Banquet & Conference Center in Windham, New Hampshire. Wallin, who is promoted by Salita Promotions, will look to stay sharp as he seeks a marquee matchup this year.

“I feel great heading into this fight,” said Wallin. “My training has been going great and I’ve done a lot of good sparring leading up to this fight. I’m excited to be fighting in New Hampshire and can’t wait to step into the ring. I can’t overlook Olguin, who is a good fighter, but I don’t think he’s on my level. I know that I can compete and win against any heavyweight in the world, and I’ll make sure that I show why on Friday night.”

  • Hopefully Otto can get a decent fight sometime this year. It’s been 2 years now since Breazeale. Maybe Parker (although that fight would be awful to watch imo), Makhmudov, McKean – any of them.

    • He is being avoided. Fury sure wants no part of him, to give him another shot – or Usyk either I think. Fury would rather fight Chisora again.

      • Clarification since i can’t edit: I didn’t mean Usyk would avoid him. Usyk doesn’t avoid anyone. I meant Fury. Fury doesn’t even want to hear his name.

  • He is the contender Usyk, Fury, Whyte, Joshua, Parker, Wilder, Dubois and Joyce will do everything to avoid.
    For Scandinavian fans it’s frustrating. But it’s good to hear he is back in the ring this friday.

  • All the top level fighters are avoiding him. He deserves a high level opponent.

  • He nearly stopped Tyson Fury on a cut caused by a punch. Would love to see a rematch!

    • Fury would much rather fight Chisora again – and same goes for Usyk. Fury-Chisora 4.

  • Wallin and Parker should fight each other. Both seem to have lost their zest in the ring and turned very ordinary.

  • This is a crime ,this man gave Tyson one of the toughest fight of his career and he languishes because nobody has the balls to risk it with this man….they should have offered him the Joyce or Parker ,he should get rid of Salita Promotions.
