Wilder: Fury's Win Was 'OK' - Schwarz Was a Punching Bag

WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder was not overly impressed with Tyson Fury's performance on Saturday night.

Fury made his Las Vegas debut when he crushed undefeated Tom Schwarz in two rounds at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

It was Fury's first bout since his controversial December draw with Wilder, which took place at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

After toying with Schwarz in the first round, Fury let his hands go in the second - dropping and then battering Schwarz to force the stoppage victory.

Schwarz, who never faced anyone even close to Fury's level, was fighting for the first time in the United States.

Wilder was also in action a month ago, when he crushed mandatory challenger Dominic Breazeale with one punch in the first round.

Wilder will now head to a September rematch with Luis Ortiz, who was knocked out by the champion in the tenth round in March 2018.

Fury is scheduled to fight again in the fall, and then the target is a rematch with Wilder in the first quarter of 2020.

Wilder saw nothing on Saturday that worries him, as he mentally prepares to face Ortiz, and then face Fury.

“It was a cool performance. It wasn’t much of an opponent. I think (Schwarz) only threw four punches. He was a punching bag.” Deontay Wilder told The Athletic over the phone on Sunday.

“Fury did what he was supposed to do. They’re trying to promote him up, saying things, selling this story about him over and over again, talking about him as the lineal champion… It’s building him up. But the performance (on Saturday against Tom Schwarz) was just OK.”

[QUOTE=BeLikeWater;19843110]Neither did he with those pillow hands. But it wasn't a real knockout it was Schwarz way of ending the fight. If you wanna see a real knockout go see wilder vs braezeale.[/QUOTE] Fury dropped him like a turd. [IMG]https://thumbs.gfycat.com/SecondDefiantGangesdolphin-size_restricted.gif[/IMG]

Was a great fashionable win for Fury. I thought that he planned to outbox the guy the whole 12 rounds and did not expect him to knock the guy out.
