Wallin criticizes Joshua's team for rematch clause: 'They are afraid of losing'

Number two in the IBF heavyweight rankings Otto Wallin complained that the team of the former unified champion Anthony Joshua forced him to agree to a rematch clause in the contract for their fight.

“My thoughts on the rematch clause? I think this is stupid. Joshua is no longer the champion, so they are only booking rematches because they are afraid of him losing. Unfortunately, if I had not agreed to the rematch, I would not have gotten this opportunity.

So I found myself in a predicament, but I want to fight, so I did everything to get this fight. Sometimes in boxing you have to agree to things you don't want to do. This is what happened in this situation. But I'm glad I got the fight. If I beat Joshua once, I’ll do it again,” Wallin said in an interview with the YouTube channel iFL TV.

Let us remind you that Joshua and Wallin will fight on December 23 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
