Fury vs. Schwarz Recap – ‘Gypsy King’ Wins Via 2nd Round TKO

Reading Time: 2 minutes

On Saturday, Lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury knocked out German challenger Tom Schwarz in two rounds at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV. Fury (who was born in Manchester, England) improved to 28-0-1 with 20 knockouts with the victory.

Fury vs. Schwarz – Fight Recap

Donning ‘Apollo Creed’-style trunks, Tyson Fury began the fight instantly throwing the jab and moving, forcing the shorter Schwarz to follow him around. Schwarz connected on a few glancing shots, but it was Fury who easily outlanded and outboxed the 25-year-old in the first round. Despite weighing in seven pounds heavier than his last fight, Fury looked very light on his feet and fast with his hands from the first second of the fight.

The second round saw Fury come out in the southpaw stance. From the opposite side, it appeared that it was even easier for Fury to avoid Schwarz’s attacks. Around a minute into the round, Fury, backed up into a corner, would land a huge left hand that definitely got Schwarz’s attention. Fury would follow it up by avoiding the German’s flurry of punches and spinning him around to return to the center of the ring. From then on Fury took complete control of the fight, busting up Schwarz’s face and eventually knocking him down with a brutal combination with less than forty seconds left in the round. Schwarz was able to continue but Fury would immediately jump on him with more brutal power shots, forcing referee Kenny Bayless to stop the fight.

I knew that Fury could stop Schwarz, but I did not expect him to get the job done so soon. From what it looked like, Schwarz was getting a bit frustrated that he could not hit Fury and left himself open to being countered numerous times. Once he felt Fury’s power in the second round, he became even more reluctant to throw and it looked like he would rather go out trying to win than trying to survive and go the distance. Excellent performance from the lineal champion. Respect to Schwarz for fighting hard.

Fury stated after the fight that he is most likely going to fight again in September or October before looking to fight WBC champion Deontay Wilder again in 2020. The two fought to a controversial draw back in December of 2018.

Other Notable Fight Results

  • Jesse Hart UD10 Sullivan Barrera
  • Yuniel Dorticos KO10 Andrew Tabiti
  • Mairis Briedis TKO3 Krzysztof Glowacki
  • Mikaela Mayer UD10x2 Lizbeth Crespo
  • Ilunga Makabu TKO5 Dmitry Kudryashov (on Sunday)

The Wilder-Fury rematch is one of the biggest fights in boxing and it looks like it will happen in 2020 should Wilder and Fury remain unbeaten until then. With Wilder set to fight top contender Luis Ortiz again, the pressure is on Tyson Fury to get in the ring with a top heavyweight opponent later this year. Could he face someone like Dillian Whyte or Kubrat Pulev? I hope so.

Who should Tyson Fury fight next to prepare him for a Deontay Wilder? Could Fury knock out Wilder in the rematch? Comment below with your opinion.

IPL: Mumbai Indians Lose Season Opener

Mumbai Indians lost an Indian Premier League (IPL) opener for the 8th successive year following a 5-wicket loss to Chennai Super Kings.

However, ex Mumbai Indians player Ambati Rayudu and South African superstars Faf du Plessis and Lungi Ngidi ensured that it didn’t...

When Did Formula One Begin?

If you ask virtually anyone the world over a simple question – “What is Formula One” they will probably get the answer correct.  It’s a car race!  Even though that might be a very simple reply (a better answer would be it’s the highest class of international single-seater auto-racing!) there is another question that will probably stump them.  That question is “When did Formula One begin?”.

The Cleveland Browns Are Looking Up

The Cleveland Browns have a team that had a ton of questions this year. They came into the game against the Bengals unsure of how they were going to get their offense going. While the Bengals aren't at all a good defense, it's still hard to play those divisional games and win. The AFC North is known for brutally cold weather that makes it nearly impossible to stay sharp, yet they were sharp offensively....

The Case For Rocky Marciano

You wouldn't think, not even for a second, that you would have to defend a world champion boxer who retired with an unblemished record of 49-0 (43 KO's), but if it's Rocky Marciano we're talking about then yep, he needs to be defended. It's ridiculous, but true. Marciano seems to have as many naysayers as he does fans. "He was too small", "He never fought anybody in their prime", "He'd get killed today"; etc....
