Boxing Match Preview: Tyson Fury vs. Tom Schwarz on June 15, 2019
Tyson Fury (27-0-1) and Tom Schwarz (24-0) are set to collide in a heavyweight fight at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Fury is the lineal heavyweight champion and his stock remains as high as ever following a controversial December draw with WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder, with many believing “The Gypsy King” should have won.
He will now look to build his profile in the United States further with a win over an undefeated prospect in Schwarz. Below is a breakdown of this intriguing Tyson Fury vs. Tom Schwarz fight by Nitrogen Sports Blog.
Fury the massive favorite
This Tyson Fury vs Tom Schwarz showdown could look as lopsided on the ring as it is on paper. It’s not a surprise that Fury is the huge favorite for this matchup. He carries odds of -3226 to win the fight.
After all, many consider him to be the best pure boxer in the heavyweight division. He has also fought top competition in the likes of former heavyweight kingpin Wladimir Klitschko and the aforementioned Wilder.
While Schwarz is undefeated, he has never faced someone at the level of Fury, who is expected by many to breeze through this fight.
Interestingly, The Briton, who usually outboxes his opponents, also has a higher knockout rate with 70 percent compared to the German’s 66 percent.
Lastly, Schwarz is not the first undefeated fighter Fury has faced. The former champion has faced a total of five unbeaten fighters in his career and has avoided defeat in all of them, the most recent being Wilder.
Schwarz looking to pull off an Andy Ruiz Jr.
Of course, Schwarz is the relatively unknown underdog. He has nothing significant to lose in this fight and everything to gain.
While he has a lower knockout rate than Fury, he has won via knockout in five of his last six fights, with none of those bouts going past the sixth round.
The 24-year-old German usually tends to go for an overhand right knockout shot, but it will not be easy against someone of Fury’s calibre, who also have the height and reach advantages.
Regardless, he has nothing to lose as mentioned, and he can take inspiration from Andy Ruiz Jr.’s recent shock win over Anthony Joshua. The Mexican-American is now a global star and a win for Schwarz would definitely do the same.
Tyson Fury vs. Tom Schwarz Conclusion
While many regard this as a sort of tuneup fight for Fury, it’s certainly a much tougher one than his previous ones against Sefer Seferi or Francesco Pianeta last year.
However, it’s hard to see “The Gyspy King” losing, and after Joshua’s shock defeat, he will doubly make sure not to underestimate his opponent.
Anything can happen, but are we really going to see another Cinderella win in the heavyweight ranks over just a short span?
It’s not Mike Tyson vs. Evander Holyfield, but Tyson Fury vs. Tom Schwarz carries intrigue of its own. That’s despite the perceived one-sidedness of this match.
