Easy nights work for Fury
Easy nights work for Fury
24-0, 6'5, 24-year-old, top 10 ranked by a few alphabets?
At least Arum's not letting him fight geratric, part time, cruiserweights which is normally the case when Fury gets to pick opponents.
3-Time SADDO PREDICTION COMP CHAMPION.
I don't blame Fury, he's been offered a shit load of money so he moves to ESPN . If that means he doesn't fight Wilder or Joshua , it's not his fault. But this is how it's gonna be from now on. Guys paid a fortune and facing unknowns and the big fights are gonna be left to "marinate". it's a fucking joke all round and the only losers are the very people who are financing all of this.........The Punters!
Former Undisputed 4 belt Prediction champion. Still P4P and People’s Champion.
Had to look at a couple fights. His fight with Dashi(?) looked like he initially flopped..complete with hands thrown in the air after an inside butt and ends up fighting off some opposition corner people after eventual DQ was announced. For a big guy he moves a lot. Pretty much a bunch of flick jabs and right hands. Definitely doesn't look the sort to attack Fury who should take him to school.
Strange work from ESPN, offer fury a lot of quids and then take on a German fellow who is totally unknown in America. I find it a weird backwards step for fury. He was going to get paid well for the rematch with wilder but wotever... I have been following Tom Schwarz he's not terrible but just not that good and hasnt really taken on good competition, he's a big fellow though and not a fatty, seems to be a powerful fellow though but a bit slow and only throws the jab straight well everything seems a bit awkward :S... If fury beats him well which I think he will then I would say that's impressive from fury rather than Schwarz just being a donkey.... Wouldn't be surprised if schwarzs knocks him down either.
What an abortion of a fight.
"Eddie Hearn slams Tyson Fury’s choice of opponent"
As well he should. F*cking disgraceful is what it is. Two steps forward and five steps back. That's the story of heavyweight boxing these days.
Boxing’s heavyweight ‘Big 3’ continue to spin their wheels with news of ‘Fury vs Schwartz’
This author says it perfectly. In fact, there's one excerpt from the article I found downright funny, as it mirrors how I feel about the Fury-Schwarz fight.
"To be honest, Joshua vs. Miller and Wilder vs. Breazeale are perfectly acceptable fights when not viewed as alternatives to Joshua vs. Wilder. Miller’s on a tear and Breazeale has been the mandatory challenger for more than one year. Both are respected fighters, albeit ones on a tier below the elite. However, the real kick in the teeth came when Fury announced his next foe: Tom Schwarz.
BoxRec has Schwarz ranked No. 42 in the division. He’s fought just once outside of his native Germany and never against a respected opponent. Fury facing the likes of Sefer Seferi and Francisco Pianeta was acceptable considering he was coming off a gargantuan layoff, but this is inexcusably bad matchmaking.
I honestly can’t muster up the energy to spew invective. This isn’t even anger-inducing at this point, just profoundly dumb. The one silver lining is that each of the three still have years left in their respective careers. Perhaps they can sort this all out by 2021, assuming none of them get knocked out while their fights “marinate.”"
"Can't muster up the energy to spew invective."
I'm gonna have to remember that the next time someone twists my words in an argument to suit his needs.
So Fury avoids Wilder rematch to fight someone who has never faced even a fringe contender before?
Showbiz with blood
Scharwz by brutal KO
Tom Schwartz is pretty big and strongand fury does has a habit of getting hit every so often, obviously is going to be a pretty small chance as Schwartz is pretty slow but these things happen sometimes.
I don't think fury can handle the pressure of being favourite in a world title fight, that's twice now that's he's dodged a rematch for the world title.
Yes... Schwarz IS big and strong, and Fury DOES have a habit of getting hit every so often.
And I'm sure Fury will be reminding us of that every single day leading up to the fight.
Amazing though how we fight fans have this incredible ability to look for the silver lining.
The reality though, is that it's a huge step down for Fury, and looks even worse when you consider it wasn't long ago we were anticipating a rematch with Wilder.
It's like ok.... I was expecting an Xbox for Christmas but they say this jigsaw puzzle you gave me is really a lot of fun.

The only silver lining I can give this is, AJ and Wilder both have fights coming up anyways, at basically the same time as this one. Not saying for a second this makes Fury more likely to fight one of them afterwards, but it doesn’t hurt the chances either. How many opponents would have realistically satisfied anyone? I’d say Parker, Ortiz or Whyte, and we all knew they weren’t going to be fury’s first opponent under his new contract.
Counting the days . I can't see Schwarz attacking him. The more he does the more he'll be pulled out to sea. I can see Fury doing a boiled down late version Hopkins number on him. Take that for what it's worth.
