This Saturday evening, another one of the UKs finest Heavyweights in undefeated, ‘Lineal champion’ Tyson Fury, headlines in Sin city itself – Las Vegas, Nevada. Opposing him, is Germany’s Tom Schwarz, who himself is also undefeated, and for the first time, fighting outside of Europe.

With the recent huge upset with unified champion, Anthony Joshua, being dethroned by Andy Ruiz Jr in New York, there’s no likelihood Fury will be overlooking Schwarz, which highlights the threat even an unknown heavyweight contender can be. Having signed a lucrative, multi-fight deal with US cable network, ESPN, Fury will realise the importance of putting in a strong performance in here.

Like Ruiz, the 25-year-old German, is a relative unknown outside of boxing circles. His record suggests he’s a big puncher, with 16 wins coming by stoppage in 24 unbeaten pro fights. But with no recognised big name on his record, we don’t know how good Schwarz will perform at this level? He also stands slightly shorter to Fury at 6’6” so he’ll hold a similar size to the former unified champion, which could also be beneficial.

The Verdict

As clearly unorthodox and awkward that Fury is, he’s not a big concussive puncher. The likelihood is, it’s going the full 12 round duration with the more experienced Fury dominating and gradually wearing down his opponent with counters. But as we saw recently, anything can happen in heavyweight boxing.

Fury has been hurt and dropped on several occasions – and coincidentally enough, on his last 2 visits to the USA (Steve Cunningham and Deontay Wilder).

If there’s a chance Fury takes this challenge likely, he could suffer the same fate as Joshua and have his unbeaten record ripped away. Schwarz could no doubt be inspired by the recent events created by Ruiz and be determined to make the most of this big opportunity on this big world stage.
