His unique mix of boxing ability and undeniable showmanship means that any Tyson Fury fight is going to be worth watching. Tonight the Gypsy King looks to his extend his undefeated record against another blemish-free contender, the German Tom Schwarz. The showdown is all set for the MGM Grand in Las Vegas (the ideal setting!) and you can live stream Fury vs Schwarz as it happens – it’s even FREE to do so in some areas.
Fury vs Schwarz – when and where
What date is it? Tonight is fight night! Saturday, June 15 has arrived and the fighters are ready to rumble.
What time is it? The fight is expected to start no earlier than 8pm in Las Vegas. So that’s an early Sunday morning at around 4am BST in the UK and afternoon 1pm AEST in Australia.
Where is it? The boxing is taking place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
The 30-year-old Fury stands taller at 6ft 9in and has more wins at 27 with a draw in there, too. But even that was a controversial 12-round split draw against WBC World Champion Deontay Wilder.
Whereas Schwarz has the age advantage at 25 years-old but is shorter at 6ft 6in and also has less experience with 24 fights. He’s won them all, but the list of defeated opponents is a lot less impressive than Tyson’s. So will it be a foregone conclusion, or is this another Anthony Joshua-style upset in the making?
Fury has always wanted to fight in Las Vegas and this, as his debut, should make for a very excited and focused performance. Fury has said: “I really love my job at the minute, more than I have ever done before. I used to think boxing was a chore, a job to go to. I trained hard for a fight and then put a ton of weight back on. Now I enjoy what I do, keep fit even when I am not boxing. I almost live my life as a routine training camp now.”

The cost varies quite a lot over the world, with the UK hosting an expensive PPV that’s undercut massively in the US by ESPN+ and even more by German channel MDR that has the whole thing absolutely FREE!
