Fury vs Schwarz: BT Sport’s Big Fight Preview
After one of the biggest upsets in the history of the heavyweight division, big-time boxing returns to BT Sport Box Office when Fury takes on the unheralded, but unbeaten, Schwarz in Las Vegas.
Unified champion Joshua relinquished the WBA, IBF and WBO versions of the heavyweight title when he was sensationally stopped by Ruiz in Madison Square Garden on 1 June.
The result reverberated through the boxing world and blew the heavyweight division wide open.
Joshua immediately triggered the rematch clause and the fight is mooted to take place in November or December, meaning a potential mega-fight with WBC king Wilder or lineal champion Fury won’t take place this year.
Wilder, meanwhile, recently knocked out Dominic Breazeale in devastating fashion and is scheduled to rematch Cuban Luis Ortiz later in the latter half of 2019.
Fury, restored to the top of Ring Magazine’s heavyweight rankings after Joshua’s defeat, is looking to avoid a similar fate to Joshua in his first fight after signing a co-promotional agreement with Top Rank.
Standing in his way is 24-year-old Schwarz – ranked number two in the world with the WBO and unbeaten in 24 bouts.
The 6ft 5ins German hasn’t operated on the world stage before, but he boasts an perfect resume with notable wins over Senad Gashi and Samir Nebo.
