Former heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (27-0-1) returns to the ring this evening for a showdown with fellow undefeated boxer Tom Schwarz (24-0).
’The Gypsy King’ was last seen in action against current title holder Deontay Wilder this past December, with the fight ending in a controversial draw.
The thrilling contest and controversial decision have many fans clamoring for a rematch between Wilder and Fury.
For that to happen, Tyson Fury must first get past the currently undefeated German Champion Tom Schwarz this evening.
Sixteen of Schwarz’s twenty-four victories have come by way of knockout.
Tyson Fury will be getting paid handsomely for tonight’s main event. According to ESPN’s Dan Rafael, “The Gypsy King” will take home a $1 million fight purse, but is guaranteed to bank $12.5 million overall through his deal with Top Rank Boxing and ESPN.
Meanwhile, Schwarz is reportedly guaranteed $250,000 for his efforts this evening. Las Vegas oddsmakers currently have the German pegged as a +1000 underdog.
Tyson Fury made it look easy tonight in Sin City. The ‘Gypsy King’ battered Schwarz with punches on route to the second round TKO finish.
