Tyson Fury has announced he will have one more fight before trying to set up a rematch with Deontay Wilder following his ruthless win over Tom Schwarz in Las Vegas.
Fury, the self-anointed lineal heavyweight champion, maintained his unbeaten record taking just two rounds to stop the German at the MGM Grand.
It was Fury’s first ring action since his draw with Wilder in Los Angeles last December. The 30-year-old has been building towards a rematch with Wilder ever since that night in California, and it remains the firm objective.
“Either September 21 or October 5, I think I’m back in New York and we’re going to have another fight, then we’re going to hunt down Deontay Wilder,” Fury told BT Sport.
Fury’s victory against Schwarz improved his record to 28-0-1, and it was a night on which he set out to entertain, firstly when recreating Apollo Creed’s ‘Living in America’ entrance from the Rocky film franchise.
“I showed a little bit of speed, boxing skill, my ability to slip and slide out of the way of punches and also the ability to finish, which is important,” Fury said.
