Warren: America is Now Probably More Aware of Fury Than Wilder

By Frank Warren

We could not be completely sure over what we were going to get from Tom Schwarz at the MGM Grand. He is young, hungry and was unbeaten in 24 fights.

Most importantly, he came to fight, which is why Tyson was able to put on a show.

I can’t think of many other heavyweights who could live with Tyson on this form. True, some might take him a few more rounds but, when Tyson is on song – both during and after the fight – nobody can question that he rules the heavy mob.

It is a little bit ironic that Tyson just being himself – a bit of showbiz swagger, while all the time honest over his shortcomings and the subject of mental health – he has achieved in one weekend in Vegas what a carefully orchestrated campaign set out to do for Anthony Joshua in New York recently.

The American public’s awareness of Tyson Fury is probably now even greater than that of Deontay Wilder. He is probably the first British heavyweight – with an English accent – to crack America.

However, his American appeal is still in its infancy and Tyson will be back to reinforce the message later this year, most likely in New York, before he sets about the business of signing up for the biggest fight there is to be made.

ESPN did a fantastic job of marketing Tyson to the masses and the interest in his story was remarkable. I am not sure if there has been a greater revival in sport, let alone boxing, than that of Tyson, who has raised himself from the pit of despair to where he is today.

Tyson is the name of the game right now.

The whole weekend has made me look forward to July 13 even more when our next generation of top heavyweights take to the ring at the o2 Arena on what should be an explosive fight night starring Daniel Dubois, Nathan Gorman and Joe Joyce.

We are not looking too far ahead to when these three will be sharing the world stage with Tyson.
