Heavyweight lineal champion Tyson Fury, of England, faces Germany's Tom Schwarz in the main event of a Top Rank on ESPN+ card at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Saturday at 10 p.m. ET. The undercard will air at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes.
Fury (27-0-1, 19 KOs) got up twice from the canvas, once in the last round, to score a controversial split draw against WBC champ Deontay Wilder in December. A rematch is scheduled for later in the year.
Fury defeated Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 to win three of the four major titles, but relinquished the WBA and WBO belts amid treatment for depression. Fury was also stripped of the IBF title after he could not commit to facing IBF mandatory opponent Vyacheslav Glazkov next because Klitschko exercised his contractual right to an immediate rematch. The rematch with Klitschko never materialized.
Schwarz (24-0, 16 KOs) has won four of his last five fights by stoppage, including a second-round KO victory over Kristijan Krstacic in March.
This will be Schwarz's first fight in the United States. He has fought the enitirely of his career in Germany, except for two fights in the Czech Republic (2016 and 2017).
