Tyson Fury’s dream of going to Las Vegas for a fight finally became a reality and one to remember.
It was all about the British boxer who put on a show before, during, and after the match in the Nevada city.
The British heavyweight star knocked out his opponent, Tom Schwarz, with 6 seconds to go in the second round on Saturday.
It had always been a wish for Fury to go to Las Vegas. He had earlier promised himself when he was younger that he would not visit the city popularly known as the boxing capital of the world for any other purpose except for a fight of his own.
Fury (28-0-1, 20 KOs) made short work of his formerly unbeaten German challenger, battering him with a poke before thumping him down to a knee in the second round just after Schwarz (24-1) handled a strong punch.
Fury squeezed ahead after the knockdown and constrained Schwarz’s corner to quit before the bell.
Battling out of the blue since he drastically ascended from a staggering twelfth round knockdown to protect a draw with Deontay Wilder, Fury affirmed his reality class capacity following his rebound a year ago from a 2 1/2-year ring nonappearance.
“I came here to live it up and put on a show for Las Vegas,” Fury said.
Even though Fury previously had some great matches in New York and Los Angeles, the Manchester local needed something uncommon in Las Vegas, which he once pledged never to visit until he got a match there.
The display by the world’s lineal heavyweight champion against an overmatched opponent was as expected by many, yet Fury’s dirty tricks during the session at the MGM Grand Garden may demonstrate to be considerably progressively important.
After Schwarz walked in, Fury showed up in red-white-and-blue apparatus, including a top cap, as he ventured through a circle of showgirls.
With a broad smile, he took the ring to James Brown’s “Living in America,” the whole passageway in tribute to Apollo Creed’s celebrated entrance at the MGM Grand in “Rocky IV.”
In contrast to Creed, Fury fought and won.
Also, after the bout, Fury displayed singing moments showing off his singing voice in what’s turning into a post-match convention. Fury also sang Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing.” for his wife.

In the wake of commanding the first round with his poke, Fury changed to a southpaw position late in the second round, and Schwarz got him with a shot. Fury got distraught, battering Schwarz with a blend and dropping him to a knee with a gigantic right hand to the head. Schwarz got up with a severely bloodied face, and Fury started peppering his turtling rival with top dogs.
The WBO very positions the 6-foot-5 Schwarz; however, he had never battled outside his country, or the Czech Republic before Fury’s camp invited him for this grandstand bout.
Schwarz knew that only two weeks prior, Anthony Joshua was defeated by Andy Ruiz Jr. at Madison Square Garden in what appears as one of the most exceptional bombshells in on-going boxing history.
Schwarz never seemed to get an opportunity of pulling a comparative bombshell — not with the 6-foot-9 Fury overshadowing him and battling in the current structure.
Fury said he intends to battle again in September or October “and one year from now, we’re going to hold down Deontay Wilder and make him give me that green belt.”
