TYSON FURY’S trainer has revealed Tom Schwarz was chosen specifically to enhance their preparations for an eventual rematch with Deontay Wilder.

The 30-year-old heavyweight on Saturday fights for the first time in Las Vegas, where at the MGM Grand his opponent is Germany’s little-known Schwarz.

He remains on course to again fight WBC champion Wilder next year, when an immediate rematch had previously appeared inevitable, and to the extent that they are already focusing on the dangerous, undefeated American.
