ACCORDING to reports from Germany, Tyson Fury’s ESPN debut will take place in Las Vegas on June 15 and the opponent will be the undefeated but unproven Tom Schwarz.
The Fury vs. Schwarz fight will officially be confirmed on Saturday night, during the Kubrat Pulev vs. Bogdan Dinu event in California, reports boxen1.com.
As a warm-up fight, Schwarz would have made sense coming after Sefer Seferi and Francesco Pianeta. (In that context, it would have been acceptable, logical, given Fury’s two-and-a-half-year layoff.) But coming as it does after Fury’s brilliant draw with Deontay Wilder in December, it’s hard to imagine too many fans will be pleased with the choice of opponent.
