    Perhaps on paper the unknown and untested Otto Wallin looked like a second consecutive soft touch for lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, but it turned out nothing could have been further from the truth.

    Fury had to overcome a tremendously spirited effort from Wallin and two horrendous cuts over his right eye in a memorable rumble before 8,249 in the main event of the Top Rank Boxing on ESPN+ card on Saturday night at T-Mobile Arena.


    Fury won 118-110, 117-111 and 116-112, but it was a dogfight all the way with palpable drama because it seemed as though the fight could have been stopped at any time due to the severity of the cuts. ESPN also scored the fight 116-112 for Fury.
