Tyson Fury will face unbeaten Swedish heavyweight Otto Wallin at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on September 14.

The Gypsy King has agreed terms with the 28-year-old, who was in the mix to face Anthony Joshua as a late replacement for Jarrell Miller on June 1.

Wallin, who has a perfect 20-0 record with 13 KOs, had a strong amateur career in Sweden and made his US debut against Nick Kisner in April.

After demolishing German prospect Tom Schwarz in June, Fury has opted for a similar type of opponent who is far from a household name in the second fight of his $100m ESPN deal.

The Manchester-born star set to be heavy favourite to come through his latest test unscathed to set up his rematch with Deontay Wilder in early 2020.

Speaking to talkSPORT last month, the Gypsy King claimed he already had contracts signed for his rematch with Wilder.

He was expected to return to the ring in October although it now seems the fight may fall slightly earlier in September.

"I've got an October date which has not been announced yet officially," Fury said.

"Then I've got the Wilder rematch, and that's it really, just enjoying life day by day.

"I've signed a contract, so it's confirmed as far as I know. If I've signed a contract, I've signed a contract, and that's it.

"One hundred per cent, he's signed a contract and I've signed a contract."
