It will be some occasion, certainly a more competitive one than this bout, which saw Fury extend his unbeaten record to 29 fights by dismissing the previously undefeated German challenger Schwarz and earn around £10 million in the process.

A cocky Tyson Fury was spotted sprawled across a couch backstage barely an hour before taking the ring against heavyweight underdog Tom Schwarz.

The 6-foot-5 Schwarz is highly ranked by the WBO, but he had never fought outside his native Germany or the Czech Republic before Fury's camp picked him for this showcase bout.

Gutierrez took aim at Fury on Friday on a show called Around the Horn, a day before the fight for which ESPN is paying Fury handsomely.

And that's not all - after the fight, he gave the crowd a rendition of Aerosmith's "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing". "I put on about 10 or 11 extra pounds from my fight with Wilder and I felt good in there, very strong".

The former world champion, who entered the fight as a heavy favourite, controlled the bout with his jab in the first round before ending it with a devastating combination in the second. "I used the jab, I was slipping and sliding".

Fury was able to make it look easy tonight against Schwarz, scoring a second round TKO victory (watch that here).

Storm chance tonight, mainly dry for Father's Day
As a cold front drops southward through the region during the late morning / afternoon period, a few showers will be possible. Saturday: Partly cloudy with a better chance of showers and thunderstorms developing, highs topping out in the middle 80s.

"There is no heavyweight in the world that can beat him, now that he is in shape", Arum said.

A flurry of punches followed as Schwarz covered up in the corner and refused to throw back, forcing referee Kenny Bayless to stop the fight with six seconds left in the round. "We will have another fight (on October 5), then we will fight Wilder".

"I already beat him once so I'll beat him again", said Fury.

Fury's victory over the previously undefeated Schwarz comes two weeks after Anthony Joshua was beaten in NY by Andy Ruiz Jr.

Fury was stripped of the belts and was out of the ring for 31 months dealing with drug and alcohol issues, massive weight gain and mental health problems that had him on the verge of suicide.

"People don't talk to me about boxing anymore", Fury said. Teddy Atlas says Fury is "technically the best heavyweight" in the division right now.
