Watch Fury vs Schwarz – Live Stream, Date, Time, TV, Online Free. Tyson Fury makes his in-ring return on Saturday in Las Vegas. The lineal heavyweight champion takes on 25-year-old undefeated German Tom Schwarz. Here is how you can watch the event.
At 30 years old, Fury has established himself as a superstar in the sweet science. At a towering 6’9″ with an 85″ reach, amazing mobility, instincts, and a redemptive story that has seen him battle back from drug addiction and mental health issues, Fury is a walking, talking pugilistic enigma whose imperfections and qualities make him as polarizing as any fighter in the sport.
In December, Fury battled undefeated WBC Heavyweight Champion Deontay Wilder to a controversial draw. In the fight, Fury was dropped twice (once in the ninth and again in the 12th) but he got up like the WWE’s Undertaker in the final frame after eating a hellacious shot from one of the most devastating punchers in heavyweight history.
I felt Fury had outboxed Wilder and earned a decision victory, but it wasn’t the case. Wilder escaped with a draw, but Fury’s comeback was legitimized and he had reestablished himself as one of the best heavyweights in the world.
Schwarz is a huge +1310 underdog according to MyBookie. However, after Andy Ruiz shocked Anthony Joshua in New York at Madison Square Garden two weeks ago, the boxing world is still on high alert–especially in the heavyweight division where all it takes is one punch.
This one isn’t stacked with compelling fights. However, the Sullivan Barrera-Jesse Hart fight could be a war. It is positioned as the co-feature. A fight on the undercard of some interest is the Andy Vences vs. Albert Bell scrap. Both men are undefeated and have hopes of earning a title shot with a victory.
Vences comes into the fight at 22-0 with 12 KO. Bell is 15-0 with 5 KOs. The junior lightweight contender fight isn’t getting a ton of attention, but we could see the winner taking on the likes of Jamal Herring for the WBO championship. Mikaela Mayer will also face Lizbeth Crespo in a women’s junior lightweight match.
What Else Will Be On?
It’s a good weekend for ESPN and Fury. There is no UFC card scheduled this week. Bellator 222 takes place the day before in New York at MSG, and this is by far the biggest boxing card of the weekend. DAZN has a World Boxing Super Series Cruiserweight semifinal bout on Saturday between Mairis Breidis Krysztof Glowacki, but it begins at 2pm ET and will be long finished by the time the ESPN card begins. ESPN+ has two other smaller cards on Saturday, including one that culminates with IBF Featherweight Champion Josh Warrington defending his title against Kid Galahad in Leeds, England.
That one will also be earlier in the day. Any way you slice it, ESPN+ should hold sway over the combat sports weekend. It also catches a break from the NBA. If the Toronto Raptors fail to close out the Golden State Warriors in Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Thursday, instead of seeing a winner-take-all Game 7 on Saturday, the game is scheduled for Sunday evening.
