On this day in history, Tyson Fury had to dig deep in order to conserve his undefeated record and win the Mayan Belt II of the World Boxing Council.
Tyson suffered two severe cuts, defeating durable basher, Swede Otto Wallin by UD, at the T-Mobile Arena of The Vegas, Nevada.
Flaymboyant, gaudy and Independent minded Fury went up to the ring clad in Mexican kit with a folk dance group and a Mexican singer, belting it out, to celebrate the Mexican National festivity.
Wallin was a more than worthy opponent who came determined to give Fury a run for his money, and earned a deserved slice of it. During the first rounds, southpaw Otto caused a right eye injury, landing a powerful left hand which opened Fury’s eyebrow and eyelid.
Fury fought covered in blood all fight. His corner had to work hard all fight long in order to control the damage and avoid the fight to be stopped.
He used his extended reach and boxing IQ to keep Wallin at arm`s reach reach. Fury had his best moments in the tenth round, but Wallin again shook Fury in the final round. The final scores were 116-112, 117-111 and 118-110.
