The Lineal Heavyweight championship was on the line in sin city and Tyson Fury was definitely the main attraction. From the moment he and his team arrived in Las Vegas he was in entertainment mode. Fury (27-0-1, 19 knockouts), signed a co-promotional deal with Top Rank and its broadcast partner ESPN, the deal is said to be in the $100 million range.

A deal of that magnitude was motivation enough for the Gypsy King to give Vegas more than their money's worth. Fury makes his Las Vegas debut in the only fashion he said he would, as the main attraction.

His opponent Tom Schwarz, now (24-1) seemed to be a little too game to become part of the antics and witty banter of the lineal champion. Schwarz appeared to be on a casual Las Vegas vacation. In the pre-fight press leading up to the fight, Schwarz was more like fan than a competitor who came to put in work and go to war. Fury's last fight against WBC champion Deontay Wilder was a testament of the inner fortitude of Tyson Fury, a viscous knock down in round twelve seemed to have sealed the fate of Fury. Nonetheless, in true Gypsy King fashion, he would get off the canvas and continue battle until the final bell.

As fans, we all knew that set the stage for the rematch. That fight had all the ingredients to become the new Heavyweight trilogy. Both Fury and Wilder are both entertaining showmen and fan favorites. Tom Schwarz, now (24-1) stated, “This is what I’ve been working for since I was a kid. A fight in Las Vegas against Tyson Fury is a dream come true. While I appreciate Tyson as a great fighter and a sportsman, I am young, ambitious and in the top of the world rankings. I‘ve won 24 fights, I’ve got nothing to lose, and my 25th victory will come against Fury.” Normally it's the veteran fighter that comes into a fight with this type of attitude, but it's quite obvious the young Heavyweight was overzealous and unprepared.

After giving Schwarz his very first loss as a pro, Fury threw Schwarz an olive branch by inviting the young German to come and train with him and fight on the undercard of Fury's next fight possibly against Jarrell Miller.
