Tyson Fury takes on Tom Schwarz in Las Vegas heavyweight bout

ESPN's Israel Gutierrez Tony Reali speak out against boxer Tyson Fury's homophobia

"I'm fighting for people who are suffering; to be a shining light in darkness".

The Gypsy King will now celebrate his victory, before beginning to look forward at his next bout in the latter part of 2019.

Earlier, UFC superstar Conor McGregor threw his weight behind the heavyweight star, wishing him well in his bout. Fury told Schwarz's father during a brief interaction.

Take that: Tyson Fury lands a blow on Tom Schwarz.

"Tonight 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.

"It suits me down to the ground". "He sells more tickets than Deontay Wilder and he's the one they seem to love".

Fury bobbed and weaved on the ropes while dodging Schwarz's relentless attack in a moment of brilliance.

British boxer Tyson Fury was slammed for homophobic comments (Pic: GETTY) "It makes me feel like I don't matter". "The key was to enjoy myself - I used the jab. We're headlining in Vegas, this is it.' I enjoyed every minute of it". Listen, I want you to come to England and train with me. 'I wanted to knock you out'. It doesn't get any bigger than this.

Tyson Fury's ruthless display to defeat Tom Schwarz suggests "we might just get a golden heavyweight period" in boxing, says BBC Radio 5 Live's Steve Bunce.

Schwarz, who was fighting in the United States for the first time and facing a top opponent also for the first time, was a heavy underdog looking to pull an enormous upset that would have been even bigger than the one Andy Ruiz Jr. pulled on June 1 in NY when he scored four knockdowns and shockingly stopped Anthony Joshua in the seventh round to take his three heavyweight world title belts in a shocker.

Fury and Wilder couldn't agree to an immediate rematch after Fury signed with co-promoter Top Rank and muddied the political situation with Wilder, who moved on to stop Dominic Breazealein the first round last month.

When Schwarz appeared, Fury embraced him and said: "God bless you".

He said Fury "might start believing and dreaming about those hundreds of millions of pounds, about the legacy he is going to leave behind, and about the wins he can have".

Fury switched to southpaw in Round 2 and really began to sit down on his punches.
