Wilder on Fury win: It was OK, but Schwarz was a punching bag

WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (41-0-1) wasn’t highly impressed with Tyson Fury (28-0-1) performance against Germany’s Tom Schwarz (24-1).


Fury made a quick work of Schwarz in his Las Vegas debut this past Saturday and TKO’d him in the second round of their fight. It was Fury’s first clash since his controversial draw against Wilder last December in Los Angeles.

“The Gypsy King” was toying around with the 25-years-old Schwarz who looked like an amateur. That being said, “The Bronze Bomber” isn’t worried at all with the potential rematch he is about to have with the Brit.

“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 was just OK.”
