Fury vs Schwarz: BT Sport's Big Fight Preview
After one of the biggest upsets in the history of the heavyweight division, big-time boxing returns to BT Sport Box Office when Fury takes on the unheralded, but unbeaten, Schwarz in Las Vegas.
Unified champion Joshua relinquished the WBA, IBF and WBO versions of the heavyweight title when he was sensationally stopped by Ruiz in Madison Square Garden on 1 June.
The result reverberated through the boxing world and blew the heavyweight division wide open.
Joshua immediately triggered the rematch clause and the fight is mooted to take place in November or December, meaning a potential mega-fight with WBC king Wilder or lineal champion Fury won’t take place this year.
Wilder, meanwhile, recently knocked out Dominic Breazeale in devastating fashion and is scheduled to rematch Cuban Luis Ortiz later in the latter half of 2019.
Fury, restored to the top of Ring Magazine’s heavyweight rankings after Joshua’s defeat, is looking to avoid a similar fate to Joshua in his first fight after signing a co-promotional agreement with Top Rank.
Standing in his way is 24-year-old Schwarz – ranked number two in the world with the WBO and unbeaten in 24 bouts.
The 6ft 5ins German hasn’t operated on the world stage before, but he boasts an perfect resume with notable wins over Senad Gashi and Samir Nebo.
He is also the current WBO Intercontinental Heavyweight champion, a title he has held since April 2017 when he knocked out Adnan Redzovic in the second round. In his most recent bout, he stopped Croatian Kristijan Krstacic in March in his hometown of Magdeburg, Germany.
Schwarz will be buoyed by Ruiz’s odds-defying display in New York and Fury will be wary of being on the receiving end of another historic upset.
Fury completed a remarkable return to boxing after a 30-month spell away from the sport against Wilder in Los Angeles in his last bout in December.
In one of the most thrilling heavyweight contests of all time, he exhibited his famed slick skills and ring generalship that saw him outpoint Wladimir Klitschko in 2015.
But in the 12th round of a captivating contest, Wilder unleashed a brutal combination that floored the challenger.
Remarkably, the self-styled Gypsy King who was motionless on the canvas, returned to his feet and took the fight to Wilder in a round that will be forever etched in heavyweight folklore.
The fight was declared a draw after the judges scored it 115-111 for Wilder, 114-112 for Fury and 113-113.
Fury was aggrieved with the decision but his performance elevated him back to the summit of the heavyweight ranks in one of sport’s greatest ever comeback stories.
Speaking at the press conference to announce the Schwarz fight, Fury said: “This is Las Vegas and it’s show time. I’m looking to put on an explosive performance in America.
“I’m really looking forward to going to Las Vegas. Lot of iconic fights have been there. I remember waking up to watch Ricky Hatton v Floyd Mayweather many years ago.
“I made a promise to myself when I was young that I wouldn’t go there until I fought there. Now here at 30 I’m going to get my chance.
“I’m not underestimating him. He is coming for a war. I don’t need to talk up Tom Schwarz. He’s unbeaten.”
Schwarz said: “This is what I've been working for since I was a kid. A fight in Las Vegas against Tyson Fury is a dream come true.
“While I appreciate Tyson as a great fighter and a sportsman, I am young, ambitious and in the top of the world rankings.
“I‘ve won 24 fights, I’ve got nothing to lose, and my 25th victory will come against Fury.”
In a month when the heavyweight division has been turned upside down, Fury returns to action against another opponent with the opportunity to change his life.
Can the unthinkable happen once again or will Fury lay down a huge marker on American shores?
