Tyson Fury's next rumoured opponent Tom Schwarz won a crazy fight v Senad Gashi in 2018


For everyone waiting for the blockbuster rematch of Tyson Fury versus Deontay Wilder will have to wait a bit longer, as the Gypsy King is now tipped for another return to the ring come June 15.

According to ESPN Deportes, The Englishman will be traveling to Las Vegas for the fight after signing a co-promotional deal in the States with ESPN.

Fury opted out of a Wilder rematch in favor of German star Tom Schwarz, whose name came to prominence last year after a bizarre fight he was involved in last year.

Schwarz, at 24-years-old, has carved out a fairly decent career for himself thus far. 

The 6'6 German started his career early and earned a debut win in the sport the day after his 19th birthday.

With WBO and WBC youth titles and a German Championship to his name, Schwarz is building quite the CV that also boasts an undefeated professional record of 24-0 (16 KOs).

Schwarz has not moved around too much in his career, having only fought one time outside of Germany, defeating Ivica Bacurin by unanimous decision in Prague back in March 2017.

A move to Las Vegas in the United States could prove a huge shock for the German and may prove a factor in the result of the match against the vastly more experienced Tyson Fury.


Schwarz has yet to face an opponent of Fury's level yet and will be heavily seen as the underdog going into the fight.

If media exposure helps for anything, Schwarz could gain some confidence with the recognition he may receive upon arriving in the States.

In a fight dating back to last year, Schwarz faced off against an impressive Senad Gashi, who gave Schwarz problems throughout the fight.

Despite dominating most of the battle, Gashi headbutted Schwarz three times before ultimately getting disqualified and still attempting to fight his opponent.

It then sparked a big brawl inside the ring - watch below:

Schwarz at 6'6 and 200lbs is best known for his movement around the ring and having a tough chin to absorb some punches before punishing his opponents later on in the match.

If Schwarz is to have any chance against Tyson Fury he better hope to show up to Las Vegas in the form of his life and perform at a level higher than he ever has before.

Meanwhile Gashi is set to face Dereck Chisora on April 20 having impressed in defeat against Carlos Takam just before Christmas.
