Tyson Fury put on a show in Vegas on Saturday night and sent a message to the rest of the heavyweights. Fury faced Tom Schwarz, an undefeated German heavyweight. Schwarz was a heavy underdog but he probably thinking that maybe lightening would strike like it did Anthony Ruiz upset of Anthony Joshua. The different between the two is Ruiz had faced top competition whereas Schwarz had not faced any topflight competition and stayed in his native Germany to fight plus two fights in the Czech Republic.
Fury threw jabs after the jabs at Schwarz as the German pursued Fury but not with effectiveness. Fury jabs were accurate, and he had no problem hitting his target with his jab. As the round progressed, the right hand followed the jab and he looked relaxed.
In the second round, Fury came out in a southpaw stance and Schwarz looked totally confused as he chased Fury, but he looked more like he was chasing a ghost. Fury unleashed the right jab with occasional right hook and straight left. Schwarz thought he had Fury trapped in the corner, but Fury managed to deflect or dodge every punch. Six punches came in Fury’s direction but Fury using his upper body, dodge every punch. A jab followed by a straight punch sent Schwarz down for a five count, but it was only a matter of time as Schwarz’s nose looked a bloody mess. Fury trapped Schwarz in the corner as time was running out of the round and landed multiple punches. Schwarz merely covered up and the referee stopped the fight.
This was a mismatch from the opening bell and Schwarz looked the part of an opponent, but Fury foot movement looked divine as he merely danced around the ring with no worry. He had no worry of being knocked out since he was barely touched. Against Schwarz, Fury had an easy time and certainly, he found out quickly that he had nothing to fear.Continue reading Tyson Fury Demolishes Tom Schwarz in Two Rounds
