Fury (27-0-1, 19 KOs) will defend his lineal heavyweight title against undefeated German challenger Tom Schwarz (24-0, 16 KOs) Saturday at MGM Grand Garden Arena, live on ESPN+ (10 p.m. ET).
He commented on his challenger's good lucks and engaged in a pose-off with his adversary before the formal press conference got underway.
This is what the main event participants and Top Rank chairman Bob Arum had to say.
