Lineal champion Tyson Fury (27-0-1) is back in action following his incredible performance against Deontay Wilder (40-0-1) in December, and now heads to the boxing capital of the world for a showdown with Tom Schwarz (24-0) on June 15 at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, live on ESPN in America and BT Sport in the UK.
Fury had previously spoke about his desire to bring an army of fans over to Las Vegas with him for his next fight, and he’s excited to now be making it a reality.
Fury said: “I’m really looking forward to it as it will be my first time in Las Vegas. When you start boxing as a little kid you dream of going to America and cracking it. In my last fight I did that with Wilder, and now I’m going back and will be seen by a lot of people around the world.
“I’m very fit and ready, so I can’t wait. Tom Schwarz is a young, fresh and ambitious fighter, but I’m going to put on a good show as usual. I’m overwhelmed by the support and it’s going to be a great night.”
