Las Vegas Destruction! Tyson Fury Utter Destroys Tom Schwarz in Two
By Robert Brizel, Head Real Combat Media Boxing Correspondent
Las Vegas, NV (June 16th, 2019)–Undefeated 6’9” linear World Heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is the complete package. At the MGM Grand’s Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, in the main event on Saturday evening, June 14, 2019, during round one, Fury threw 45 jabs, mostly to the body of 24-0 Tom Schwarz. Fury turned southpaw in round two, landing power hook shots through the limited guard of the smaller Schwarz, bloodying his nose and dropping him to the canvas. The end came in a corner, with Schwarz pathetically trying unsuccessfully to cover up while Fury administered to him a resounding devastating rapid blow torture to finish his padded record opponent off.
Headlining a nine-bout ESPN Top Rank card, it did not last long. Fury, 28-0-1 with 20 knockouts, Wilmslow, Cheshire, United Kingdom, at a trim 263 pounds, towered over the 6’5” 245 ½ pound Schwarz, now 24-1 with 16 knockouts, Magdeburg, Sachsen-Anhalt, Germany. The fact that fury could display good head and foot movement, and regard a 24-0 opponent pretty much as a joke with his hands down for the most part as the bout neared its inevitable conclusion in the second round, highlighted the critical difference in today’s boxing world between a super fighter and a fighter.
Fury is a class above the rest of the pack. Today it is the Tyson Fury, Deontay Wilder, Andy Ruiz Jr. show, with Anthony Joshua and Luis Ortiz on the fringe. All other names are practically bupkis, meaning nothing at all for the most part. Efe Ajagba, Tony Yoka, Joe Joyce, Daniel Dubois, Jarrell Miller and Adam Kownacki, like Schwarz, are among the numerous unbeaten wannabes out there, still be to promoted, and undoubtedly overhyped. Fury took Schwarz’ unbeaten padded record and torn it apart to smithereens. Fury was not impressed, and neither were we. No belt was at stake in this bout, and no belt was necessary. This means it is either Fury-Wilder II, Fury-Joshua, Fury-Ruiz, Fury-Ortiz, Fury versus the winner of Dillian Whyte versus Oscar Rivas, or Fury versus Mike Hunter or anybody else in the future, or have a good life. Fury will fight anyone anywhere anyplace anytime, and Schwarz, at 24-0, was just a rotten excuse to sell tickets. Fight fans want to see the big Kahuna again. Fury versus Andy Ruiz Jr. would wow them, if Ruiz gets by Joshua in the rematch. Now that Joshua’s chin has been exposed, Fury, as well as everybody else, wants him.
Result: Tyson Fury TKO 2 Tom Schwarz, Heavyweights (2:56)
Fury bloodied 24-0 Schwarz’ nose, and knocked down Schwarz in the second round.

Jesse Hart Win 10 Sullivan Barrera, Light Heavyweights
It seems neither Hart, nor ex-super middleweight champion Gilberto Ramirez, whom he lsot to twice, can make weight at 168 pounds. Hart’s true calling is at super middleweight, and this is going to leave the cluttered 175 pound light heavyweight division more cluttered.
