Tyson Fury: In 2020, We'll Hunt Down Deontay Wilder!

Ever the entertainer, The Gypsy King did not disappoint with his performance in the ring or outside it, channeling Apollo Creed by entering to the tune of James Brown's "Living in America" and decked head-to-toe in the Stars and Stripes.

As reported by ESPN, Tyson Fury was getting PAID for tonight's bout with Schwarz.

It was a brilliant display of head movement that makes Fury so incredibly hard to hit and can often see big punchers like Wilder really struggle in the early rounds.

A couple of taxing uppercuts though early on in round two from Fury followed by a bruising left hook put Schwarz down and he was unable to recover.

The 6ft 9in Brit showed his defensive guile by backing off and slipping a series of punches from Schwarz in the second round, before moving in for the finish. But when Schwarz missed his desperate punches, Fury busted him up again, trapped him in a corner and unloaded a volley of punches to his counterpart until referee Kenny Bayless had no choice but to intervene. I switched up southpaw, tonight I wasn't even orthodox, I let him have it from a southpaw position to put on a good show, you know'. I put on an extra 12 pounds.

Fury added: "Frank brought me back from the brink. Return of the Mack, the Mack is back, the lineal champion". "I'll have fought the best in the world and won against the best of the world".

The bout marked Fury's first appearance since fighting reigning WBC title holder Deontay Wilder to a draw this past December in Los Angeles.

The bout started in conservative fashion with both fighters feeling each other out a little in round one.

"What's next? [Co-promoter] Bob [Arum] will tell you that we have got either September 21 or October 5 and then next year we are going to hold down Deontay Wilder and make him give me that green belt", Fury said.

Fury outlanded Schwarz, 45 to 6, according to CompuBox and connected on 47 percent of his power shots.
