Nobody can take anything for granted from the heavyweight division, not after what happened two weeks ago in Madison Square Garden. Against that backdrop, lineal champion Tyson Fury measures to the ring Saturday night at Las Vegas against Tom Schwarz, a German challenger who’s unheralded, but is also 24-0 with 16 knockouts. The most important Fury vs. Schwarz card from MGM Grand Garden Arena begins at 10 p.m. ET, with all the must-see event ticketed for roughly 11:30 p.m. ET. Fury watched Andy Ruiz Jr. stun unified champ Anthony Joshua with a seventh-round TKO on June 1, so that he will not take Schwarz lightly. Fury is 27-0-1 with 19 knockouts following his controversial draw last December versus WBC champ Deontay Wilder. Bookmakers peg Fury as a -3000 preferred (hazard $3,000 to win $100) at the most recent Fury vs. Schwarz odds, with Schwarz getting +1200 (risk $100 to win $1,200) as the underdog. The over-under is 9.5 rounds. Prior to making any Fury vs. Schwarz picks or boxing predictions, listen to what Peter Kahn has to say.
A battle game veteran with over 20 decades of experience as a manager, promoter and advisor, Kahn has his hands on the heartbeat of exactly what goes on inside and outside the ring. He can be heard weekly as co-host of“The Fight Men“ podcast around the SB Nation Radio Network.
Nobody understands the heavyweight division . Only last month, Kahn called Wilder knocking out Dominic Breazeale in the first round — a huge 22-1 long shot bet. „According to everything Wilder has expressed leading to the fight and his true steak and dislike with Breazeale, anticipate Wilder to appear and attempt to get rid of him early in order to make an impression,“ Kahn told readers. The end result: Wilder ended it at the 2:17 mark using a violent one-punch knockout. Made a killing.
Now, Kahn has scouted Fury vs. Schwarz from every angle and secured in his three best bets. He’s sharing them at SportsLine.
Kahn understands Fury, that boasts an 85-inch reach, has fought much harder opponents than Schwarz. Fury conquer the previous undisputed champion, Wladimir Klitschko, in 2015, and lots of observers say he out-boxed Wilder last December. In that split attraction, the Gypsy King defeated Wilder with his jab and long reach. And he showed tremendous grit by rising like a Phoenix from two knockdowns. With an 2020 rematch with Wilder looming, Fury intends to build his drawing ability.
