Tyson Fury was thirty one years old at the start of the fight.

He was able to overcome a sluggish beginning, a gruesome cut and a fearless challenger to win a unanimous decision by scores of 116-112, 117-111 and 118-110.

Fury boxed out of the orthodox stance to use his superior height, reach, and footwork to pile up points and dominate the second half of the fight.

This clash came exactly thirteen weeks after Tyson Fury scored a second round tko over German Tom Schwarz on the other side of the Las Vegas Strip at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Fury had defeated Schwarz by second round technical knockout.

This was Tyson Fury's Las Vegas debut as he started a thirty month, big money ESPN contract. Before the boxing match began, Wallin was ranked 46th in the world at heavyweight by BoxRec. Wallin weighed 236 pound compared to 254 pound for Fury.

Over 8,000 Fans In Attendance

A crisis emerged in the third round when Wallin, a Swedish boxer who entered as a more than 10-1 underdog, landed a left hand flush on Fury’s right eye that opened up a wide gash.

After the round the Nevada Athletic Commission confirmed the cut was the result of a punch, meaning Wallin would be declared the winner by technical knockout if the ringside doctor ruled it unsafe for Fury to continue. However, Tyson Fury survived a series of hairy moments over the next several rounds as Wallin targeted the wound. Fury took control of the action from the seventh round on and made it to the final bell in front of 8,249 spectators at T-Mobile Arena.[5] Fury required forty seven stitches after the fight.[11]
