Britain’s own 🇬🇧Tyson “Gypsy King” Fury (28-0-1, 20KO) put on a very sharp performance in his 2 rounds of action, befuddling German challenger 🇩🇪Tom Schwarz (24-1-0, 16KO), rendering him helpless, securing the TKO stoppage in what was a successful debut on the ESPN platform.
What was witnessed tonight was a masterclass of a multitude of contrasting varying skills in his short work, showcasing what he is capable of doing, and rendering the over-matched Schwarz helpless in their 2 round scrap. While this of course was expected, the way that Fury showed out and conducted himself was very impressive, looking as sharp as he has looked thus far, on the perfect night where he debuted on a new platform, and in 🎰Las Vegas in front of an American audience where he is sure to gain brand new fans after his performance. His Apollo Creed (Rocky) walk-in was one that will be remembered for new watchers tuning in, and his personality will undoubtedly pull in a much larger contingent of fans to his already snowballing popularity. Fury switched from righty to southpaw, flicked the jab from either side, hooked off the jab, counterpunched, mixed it up to the body, showed excellent defensive maneuverability, good instincts, and showed some pop in his punches. Schwarz tried, but there was nothing he could do. Every once in a while, he would land a decent single punch, but couldn’t follow up with anything, and the moment that he tried to open up in the second round, Fury was able to duck & dodge every shot Schwarz threw while Tyson was on the ropes, in an excellent display of upper-body movement. In that same round, Fury caught Schwarz with a crafty 4 punch combo, and a slide-step as Schwarz went to the canvas. He got up, but didn’t have all of his faculties with him, so Fury stepped the pressure up, putting Schwarz on the ropes and had him completely shelled up behind his defense, to where Fury started loading up on his shots thrown in a variety of different combinations that forced Referee Kenny Bayless to stop the contest.
With Fury’s first exposure on 📺ESPN (ESPN+ tonight), he was successful in setting the table for future endeavors with increasing the interest of the public to him and Heavyweight boxing, and it should suit well for him going forward in potential fights that will come against elite competition at the weight class that is pending on certain factors, but we will revisit and dive into those details more in the future as those situations manifest.
