United States, Las Vegas
September 12, 2019 at 01:40 GMT +00:00 · Published

Tyson Fury vowed not to underestimate underdog Otto Wallin at a pre-fight press conference in Las Vegas on Wednesday.

Fury (28-0-1, 20 KOs) said he would give his Swedish opponent the "ultimate respect" on Saturday night, filling the Sin City fight night held annually on Mexican Independence Day weekend.

"The tallness and the southpaw and he's a defensive fighter. That always is a challenge, but I never met a challenger that I could not defeat, I never met a mountain I could not climb, I never met a man I could not beat. So he's going to be no exception.."

"Hopefully we go for a beer afterwards."

Wallin (20-0, 13 KOs) promised to deliver an upset, despite lacking the bookies' confidence.

Tyson Fury and Otto Wallin spoke to the press ahead of their September 14 fight in MGM grand, Las Vegas on Wednesday.

SOT, Tyson Fury, British Boxer: "I am as strong as I have ever been. I feel very, very fit, very accurate. I've been working on different things on the gym. Obviously the tallness and the southpaw and he's a defensive fighter. That always is a challenge, but I never met a challenger that I could not defeat, I never met a mountain I could not climb, I never met a man I could not beat. So he's going to be no exception. And if all things go to plan, we will have a good fight, entertain the Las Vegas fans and hopefully go for a beer afterwards, who knows."

W/S Journalists

SOT, Tyson Fury, British Boxer: "I don't underestimate anybody, I give everybody the ultimate respect, even if I'm fighting a guy who's had 20 fights and lost 20. I will train for him like he's had 20 knockouts in a row, because I never fail to prepare. I trained hard for this fight as hard as I trained for Wilder, as hard as I train for anybody."

W/S Journalists

SOT, Tyson Fury, British Boxer: "I don't know much about Otto, at all to be fair, and that's sometimes a good thing, because when you know everything about an opponent, it doesn't really turn me on little bit more than it should do. But when the unknown, it's more exciting isn't it?"

SOT, Otto Wallin, Swedish boxer: "You can expect a good boxer, I'm well-schooled, I've got a good background. I've got good offence, good defence, and yes, I think I got what it takes to cause an upset."
