It took less than two rounds for ‘The Gypsy King’ to pull off a convincing win (28-0-1, 20 KOs) against his heavyweight rival, Tom Schwarz.
TKO win in the second round
Following his controversial draw versus Deontay Wilder last December, Tyson Fury made a return to the ring, decked out in stars and stripes reminiscent of Apollo Creed in ‘Rocky 2,’ to take on unbeaten heavyweight, Tom Schwarz at the MGM Grand, Las Vegas. ‘The Gypsy King’ put on a masterclass, switching from orthodox to southpaw, firing a range of combinations whilst slipping shots with ease. Fury tagged Schwarz in the second round, dropping him to one knee, then landed a flurry of punches which lead the referee to stop the bout at the end of the second round.
“Return of the Mack”
After his victory, Tyson Fury said, “I switched up to southpaw and caught him with a straight left and it was a good shot that would’ve put anyone away. I put on an extra 12 pounds and I really, really feel it. I haven’t had a full year out of the ring this time, I had a few months and I’m back. Return of the Mack, the Mack is back, the lineal champion.”
Is Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder rematch on the cards?
Tyson Fury is slated for a match this September/October, followed by a fight against Deontay Wilder next year, according to Fury’s co-promoter, Bob Arum. Fury said, “What’s next? Bob will tell you that we have got either Sept. 21 or Oct. 5 and then next year we are going to hold down Deontay Wilder and make him give me that green belt.”
