Joshua vs Wallin Betting Preview
This fight line is accurately placed, perhaps there's even some value on Joshua at -350. We know AJ's strengths — he's long, strong, and crisp — but he sometimes has off nights. At his weakest points, Joshua can look uninterested or sloppy in the ring. Wallin has a chance if that version of the Englishman materializes on Dec. 23.
Even so, I don't think Wallin has enough talent to polish Joshua off. The Swede is pesky, especially in his southpaw stance, but doesn't necessarily have "knock-your-block-off" power.
Anthony Joshua vs Otto Wallin Pick
Wallin's last five fights have gone the distance. On top of that, he's never been knocked out before.
Joshua certainly could be the first to put him out, but it's far more likely we see this brawl go the distance. Give me AJ by decision.
