On Saturday, March 28th at Park MGM in Las Vegas, Showtime will broadcast heavyweights Otto Wallin (pictured) and Lucas Browne battling in a ten-round attraction The 29 year-old Wallin (20-1, 13 KOs) will return to the city where he gave a very tough battle to former world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury in September. Wallin opened up a gruesome cut over Fury’s right eye with a legal punch that nearly halted the fight. While Wallin dropped the decision to Fury, he proved his mettle. Representing his native Sundsvall, Sweden, Wallin trains in New York with former champion Joey Gamache. Wallin’s last fight in Las Vegas was his second in the U.S., after his debut on Showtime in April ended in a no contest because of a cut suffered by his opponent in the first round.
Fighting out of New South Wales, Australia, Browne (29-2, 25 KOs) most recently scored a knockout victory over John Hopoate in November, his second win of 2019. [Browne has had issues with banned performance enhancing substances in the past]. He’s won four of his last five bouts, with his only career losses coming to Dillian Whyte and David Allen in the U.K. Browne won his first 25 pro fights, including a stoppage of Ruslan Chagaev in 2016 to capture a WBA regular title. He will be making his U.S. debut.
