Tyson Fury (27-0-1) will have one eye on a huge rematch with Deontay Wilder, especially now that Anthony Joshua has to wait in the wings for his rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr. For Fury, this fight with Schwarz is all about retaining his confidence and zest for the sport with a clean and comfortable performance.
Fury has never had huge knock out power in his hands, but he is perhaps the most technically gifted boxer in the division today. Having said that regarding Fury’s power, it is very likely that he will eventually wear down Schwarz on Saturday night and stop him in the latter rounds.
For his part, the 25-year-old Tom Schwarz (24-0-0) is unbeaten in 24 professional fights to date, stopping sixteen of his opponents by way of knock out, so he needs to be taken seriously, particularly when you consider how tough German boxers tend to be.
Last time out in March, the 6ft 5in Schwarz floored Kristijan Krstacic to win the WBO Inter-Continental Heavyweight title. The reality is however, Tom Schwarz has never entered the ring with a fighter of the calibre of Tyson Fury, who has been fighting the very best in the world throughout his career and despite a controversial end, looked as good as ever against Deontay Wilder in December.
