Otto Wallin has fought both men.
The Swede was out-gunned by Anthony Joshua in Saudi Arabia and was pulled out of the fight against the Brit at the end of the 5th round.
In 2019 he faced ‘The Gypsy King’ and left the WBC champion badly cut before dropping a points decision.

And he admitted that his fight with Joshua was tougher than his bout with Fury.
“He hit me with some good body shots. I’m always ready for that, of course, but I think they had a good game-plan, said Wallin when speaking to Boxing News.
I haven’t watched the fight, but he felt like a very good fighter. Obviously it was a much tougher fight than what I had with Fury. He did really well. Maybe he’s found his home with Ben Davison.”
On a potential Fury vs Joshua he gave his assessment.
“Well, I would say that this fight with Joshua was a lot tougher than the fight I had with Fury. It’s hard to say. I think that Fury’s a very good fighter. Can probably pick it up from what he was doing in his last fight. It’s a decent fight. We’ll see what happens with Joshua now.
He might be on to something really good with Ben Davison, and Ben obviously knows Tyson. I don’t know. There’s a lot of variables. I always said that Fury would win that fight, but now just being in with Joshua, I feel a little bit different. It’s hard to go against Tyson I think. But, I don’t know, it’s changed my mind a bit after this fight.”
