CLAD in stars and stripes, Tyson Fury did his best Apollo Creed impression when making his ring walk in Las Vegas on Saturday (June 15) and then demolished an overmatched Tom Schwarz in two rounds.

Though he had boxed in America before, the Schwarz fight represented Fury’s Las Vegas debut and, thanks to his attire and performance, he went down a storm.

Now, backed by ESPN and Top Rank, there’s every chance America will want to keep Fury out there and next time he could oppose Bulgaria’s Kubrat Pulev or American Jarrell Miller, the two front-runners. Whomever the foe, one thing we know for sure is this: it’s going to be on US soil.
