USA: Fury and Schwarz face off ahead of Las Vegas bout

June 13, 2019 at 00:25 (GMT) · Published

Donning a suit bearing images of boxing legends, undefeated linear heavyweight champion Tyson Fury appeared alongside his upcoming opponent Tom Schwarz at a presser at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Wednesday.

The British boxer described the upcoming fight with Schwarz as “the biggest fight of my life,” and explained that after having won the Championship title in 2015, everything else he views as “a bonus”

Both fighters exchanged funny poses as they stood on stage. Fury leaned in to kiss Schwarz during their face-off.

"He's a good-looking guy, I was just going to kiss him there," joked Fury during an interview with media after the event. "He reminds me of a young Tyson Fury."

The British boxer reflected on his fight with Wilder last December. "I believe the fight with Wilder only helped with my profile in the U.S." he said.

The fight will take place Saturday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
