Tyson Fury shows acccuacy and power in stopping Tom Schwarz
Court Jester Tyson Fury (28-0-1, 20 KOs) missed his prediction by one round. The lineal heavyweight champion stopped overmatched German heavyweight Tom Schwarz (24-1, 16 KOs) in round two at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV, Saturday night.
Fury, as is his style, moved and punched in the opening round. His jab was immediately on point. Schwarz took them well, but offered little resistance. He fired a heavy right hand that missed the elusive Fury.
The six-foot-nine, 263 pound Fury, switched to southpaw in round two and landed some jolting left hands.
Schwarz was eating shots and his nose was bleeding. Fury opened up and dropped him with a variety of blows. Schwarz got up, his eyes blinking. He was in big trouble. Fury forced him into the ropes and unloaded until referee Kenny Bayless waved the fight off.
“Thank you, America, and God Bless you all,” said Fury. “The key tonight was to enjoy myself. I was slipping and sliding. Bring them all on.”
Fury mentioned after the fight that he intends to return to the ring either September 21 or October 5.
