Following Tyson Fury’s impressive second round knockout of Tom Schwarz in defense of his lineal heavyweight title Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, Fury and his promoter, Bob Arum of Top Rank, spoke about their future plans and how the “Gypsy King” fared in his Las Vegas debut.

“I felt like this was my coming out party,” explained Fury (28-0-1, 20 KOs). “You saw me fight in December of last year [against Deontay Wilder], I had to lose 147 pounds for that fight, so I wasn’t at my strongest. Maybe I shouldn’t have taken that fight as soon as I did but I did anyway. This time I had enough training time, I was strong, I was fit, I was ready to put on a show.” Continue reading “Tyson Fury: This was my coming out party”

But quickly sensing Schwarz didn’t pose the same risk as the Bronze Bomber, Fury starting using both hands as leads, switching stances, and mugging to Schwarz and the crowd.
