“I came here to put on a show for Las Vegas and I hope everyone enjoyed it as much as i did,” Fury said. “I want to thank everyone for putting on a great show. ESPN was promoting the show every day for four weeks. There was a 2.5-hour documentary on ESPN last night. {Top Rank is} the greatest promotional company in the world.”

With this win, he retained his lineal heavyweight championship. He won this in 2015 after defeating Wladimir Klitschko in Germany.

Fury is now 28-0-1 in his boxing career. The one draw came against Deontay Wilder on Dec. 1, 2018 at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California for the WBC Heavyweight championship.

There will be a rematch, according to Wilder, in the future, as he said it’ll be his next fight after another fight with Luis Ortiz. Wilder has a 41-0-1 record in his career.

This was just Fury’s third fight in the United States. Besides the fight in Los Angeles and the fight in Saturday in Nevada, the 30-year-old Wythenshawe, Manchester, England native also had a fight against Steve Cunningham at The Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York.

The 25-year-old Halle, Germany native suffered his first loss of his career. He fell to 24-1 with the loss.

This was Schwarz’s first fight in the United States after having the majority of his fights in Germany or two in the Czech Republic.
