Anthony Joshua Vs Otto Wallin Odds
Anthony Joshua is back! AJ's latest opponent is a Swedish boxer who has only ever been beaten by one man - Tyson Fury. If it feels like AJ's team has set this up as a calling card for Tyson Fury, that's probably because it is! Joshua will look to beat the Swede in more convincing fashion than Fury did on his return to Boxing back in 2019. Fury won on points on that day but Wallin has put away the likes of Dominic Breazeale and Rydell Booker since that defeat.
This fight will take place on the same card as Deontay Wilder Vs Joseph Parker and it sits as one of the only fight cards that all major players in boxing will be interested in with top fighters from Europe, Oceania and America in the top two fights on the billing. AJ has already made it clear that a fight with Wilder is next on the cards and it's likely that the winner of that fight between the heavyweight rivals will get a title shot.
It's not just Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua on the card that will interest heavyweight boxing fans as Daniel Dubois takes on Jarrell Miller after a controversial defeat to Oleksandr Usyk in August. Usyk's mandatory challenger Filip Hrgovic and Frank Sanchez also feature on the card. It is also rumoured that Dmitry Bivol will defend his championship against Lyndon Arthur and if that happens, the card in Saudi Arabia may just be the biggest in recent memory.
Betting on the Winner of Anthony Joshua Vs Otto Wallin
When placing this boxing bet, it is important to acknowledge that Anthony Joshua is going to be the major favourite for this fight. However, Otto Wallin has never been knocked out and the Swede put up a good fight against Fury, this might just be a harder fight than what Anthony Joshua is expecting and we've seen Joshua drop his guard numerous times in fights where he is expected to win. Does this mean that we might see a shock victory for Wallin? Stranger things have happened, just ask Andy Ruiz Jr.
Unless you're backing a shock upset, the betting odds won't be great for betting on the winner market in this fight. So, we recommend taking a look at some of the more in-depth and specific markets closer to the fight.
'## Betting on the finish of Anthony Joshua Vs Otto Wallin
It really is a shame that we didn't see Otto Wallin Vs Dillian Whyte back in 2021 as it would give us a significantly bigger indication of where Wallin is at in comparison to the biggest names in Boxing. 12 of Wallin's 25 victories have come from decision wins and his only loss also came via Unanimous Decision. Wallin landed some solid shots on Fury but the quality of Fury from that fight in comparison to the third Deontay Wilder fight were night and day. The decision to fight Otto Wallin in Saudi Arabia while Wilder takes on Joseph Parker is a risky one as a potential super fight could be scuppered by either side losing in December. Joshua hasn't looked strong enough to knock out any of his opponents in recent fights and it has to be questioned if AJ would have looked as strong against Robert Helenius if the Finnish boxer had a full fight camp to prepare for Joshua.
If you think Joshua will likely steamroll over Otto Wallin, you will find the odds for Joshua to win by KO are higher than that of a decision victory as it seems like a victory in the same manner of Joshua's win against Jermaine Franklin is the most likely outcome.
Betting on rounds in Anthony Joshua Vs Otto Wallin
If you're backing a knockout victory when Joshua and Wallin clash, you'll get good odds. However, you'll find significantly larger odds for a round knockout. In Otto Wallin's whole career, only two fights have ended in the opening three rounds. Meanwhile, you have to go back to 2016 to see the last time Joshua finished a fighter in the opening six rounds. If you're backing a knockout, it's likely that the odds will favour a late knockout.
It does seem like the most likely decision is a unanimous decision in favour of Joshua but when fighting, things can sway in seconds, could we see a future fight between Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder, could it be on the undercard of Tyson Fury Vs Oleksandr Usyk in February? That would for certain mark that date in the calendar as one of the biggest days in the history of the sport.
