Tyson Fury dominates Tom Schwarz to seal second round victory in Las Vegas
Tyson Fury sealed a comfortable second round victory over Tom Schwarz on his Las Vegas debut.
Fury, fighting for the first time since his thrilling draw with WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder last December, extended his professional record to 28-1-0 with a comprehensive victory over Germany’s Schwarz.
Fury dominated from the opening bell, immediately finding a home for his jab as Schwarz struggled to keep pace with his slick opponent.
After superbly slipping and sliding away from the German’s second round attack, a ruthless Fury went in for the kill, connecting with a flurry of stinging shots that sent Schwarz to the canvas face first.
The previously unbeaten 25-year-old rose to his feet, bloodied and bruised, with Fury immediately picking up from where he left off.
With the Briton landing more shots and with Schwarz throwing nothing back, the towel was thrown in.
Fury entered the contest as an overwhelming favourite, fighting against an opponent competing outside of his home country for just the third time in his 24-fight career.
The undefeated heavyweight revealed in his post-fight interview he will return to the ring in September or October – before a hugely anticipated rematch with Wilder in 2020
Last month, Wilder announced plans to take on Luis Ortiz for the second time in his career, vowing to settle what he described as a ‘controversial’ fight against the Cuban who gave him serious problems when they met in New York in 2018.
And Wilder has also promised a second fight with Fury, insisting contracts have been signed and delivered at the end of May. – skynews.com
