OTTO WALLIN wants to fight Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury and Joseph Parker to cement his place within the heavyweight division’s elite.
Wallin pushed Fury all the way in 2019, causing a 47-stitch gash but eventually losing on points.
He also twice boxed Joshua in the amateurs and spent some time sparring him in 2015.
It leaves the Swede confident he can compete amongst the best in the world, including ex-WBO champion Parker, 30.
Wallin’s promoter Dmitriy Salita told Sky Sports: “Otto fought in the UK this year. His goal is to get a rematch with Tyson Fury and to fight Anthony Joshua.
“Tyson is fighting obviously against (Derek) Chisora in December, but Joshua seems to be in flux. Otto wants to keep busy with significant fights.
“Joseph Parker is a good opponent for Otto to fight – and one that we will pursue with interest.”
Joshua, 33, is coming off consecutive losses to southpaw star Oleksandr Usyk, 35, sparking a break to mentally recover.
But lefty Wallin, 31, is included in a list of names being considered for AJ’s return next year.
Salita said: “I know that Otto’s name is in the mix with some others and it’s something that we’re very interested in and we’ve expressed interest to Eddie (Hearn).
“From what I know and from what I understand, Otto is in play for a possible fight with Anthony Joshua.”

Wallin’s only career defeat was against Fury, a fight he feels confident in taking again.
Salita said: “Otto feels very confident about his chances to win, while it’s possible that Joshua may feel a little intimidated coming off a loss against a southpaw in Usyk.
“He did a great job, but he lost. There have been some good discussions, we love the fight and we’re ready for it, any time, any day of the week.”
