Tyson Fury takes on Tom Schwarz in Las Vegas heavyweight bout

Tyson Fury vs Tom Schwarz Ricky Hatton in bold prediction

"Either September 21 or October 5, I think I'm back in NY and we're going to have another fight, then we're going to hunt down Deontay Wilder", Fury told BT Sport. Referee Kenny Bayless, however, was facing the fighters and did not see the towel, but he stepped in to stop the battering anyway, calling a halt to the action at 2 minutes, 54 seconds and sending the largely British crowd into a celebration.

"It'll be brilliant to fight in NY [before then]".

However, boxing fans were also shown a masterclass in how to avoid punches, with Fury dodging and weaving out of the way of seven strikes from Schwarz.

"I came here to have fun and put on a show and I hope everybody enjoyed it as much as I did", Fury said.

And after the bout, Fury showed off his decent singing voice in what's becoming a post-fight tradition, giving promoters and fans a glimpse of what he brings to the table inside and outside the ring. I put on an extra 12 pounds and I really, really feel it.

Fury had perhaps re-established himself as the world's leading heavyweight with December's thrilling draw against the American, when his performance deserved victory, and his reputation grew to such an extent he signed a lucrative contract to fight on ESPN out of the United States against an unremarkable opponent.

"Deontay Wilder is coming", Fury said.

"If Wilder and Fury fight each other next February or March, that is prime v prime and that, at the top of the heavyweight cannon, is one of the rarest things in boxing".

Not many observers expect Fury to need similar recuperative powers against Schwarz (24-0, 16 KOs), who has never fought anyone close to Fury's stature.

Fury has continued to work his way back from a 31-month layoff where he battled mental illness and weight gain. Unsurprisingly, Fury was in a party mood after the fight, and celebrated his win with a spot of karaoke, belting out Aerosmith's "I don't want to miss a thing".

Fury is unlikely to fight in Britain any time soon.

A deal for a pay-per-view rematch between Fury and Wilder has already been made for the first quarter of 2020, assuming Fury wins his fall fight and Wilder retains his title against Luis "King Kong" Ortiz this fall in a rematch of Wilder's dramatic 10th-round knockout of Ortiz in a candidate for 2018 fight of the year.

"There are two networks, and it's 50-50". "You've got my word it's going to happen. Right here [in Las Vegas]".

Fury's victory over the previously undefeated Schwarz comes two weeks after Anthony Joshua was beaten in NY by Andy Ruiz Jr.
