Fury vs Wallin tale of the tape: How the fighters match-up ahead of heavyweight showdown in Las Vegas

TYSON FURY is back - and out to wow the American public once again.

The Gypsy King put on a Vegas show when destroying Tom Schwarz back in June, outclassing the previously unbeaten German infront of a packed crowd at the MGM.

And now the former heavyweight champion returns to the ring against Sweden's Otto Wallin as he looks to set up another showdown with Deontay Wilder.

Fury vs Wallin tale of the tape

THIS heavyweight clash will be held at the T-Mobile Arena as Fury continues his meteoric rise over the the pond.

The American public can't get enough of Tyson, who walked to the ring against Schwarz dressed like Uncle Sam in a homage to Apollo Creed from Rocky IV.

Fury, 31, has been criticised by Wilder for taking on this fight with the unheralded Wallin, who enters the bout with a perfect unbeaten record.

The Gypsy King has 28 wins from his 29 pro fights, the only blemish that incredible draw with the Bronze Bomber late last year.

Wallin - who has a perfect 20-0 record -  came Stateside for the first time in April to fight Nick Kisner, but the fight was deemed a no-contest after an ugly clash of heads.

Thirteen of those wins for Wallin have come by way of knockout, whilst Fury has dispatched 20 of his 29 opponents to the canvas.

The Brit towers above the 6ft5 Swede at 6f9, whilst commanding a reach advantage of 8cm.

That should allow Fury to get that gigantic jab working, whilst he is likely to be around two stone heavier than his opponent on the scales.

And in terms of world titles, there's no contest.

Fury has four to his name, whilst Wallin has only ever fought for continental honours.
