Tyson Fury to fight unbeaten Tom Schwarz in Las Vegas

Tyson Fury will return to the ring in June

Fury will face Tom Schwarz in Las Vegas in June, while Wilder will put his strap on the line against Dominic Breazeale in May.

Fury is fresh off the back of a £80million ESPN deal and was expected to take a rematch with WBC champ Deontay Wilder after a controversial draw, but conflicting TV deals seem set to jeopardise any negotiations for now, much to the dismay of fight fans.

Despite his undefeated record the 6ft 6ins WBO Intercontinental champion has only fought outside of Germany once and there is no names of note on his list of fights.

The Brit is now keen to build his profile in the US and turned down a rematch offer from Wilder.

The fight will take place on June 15, with the likely venue being the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. However, he has not come up against anyone that is at the level of Fury. But Wilder also scored two knockdowns, including a heavy one in the 12th round that Fury somehow survived.

A rematch was immediately in the works after the contest, but with Wilder recently signing with Showtime Boxing, and Fury now with ESPN, there's no telling whether or not the awaited rematch will actually happen.

Fury, Wilder and unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua all now operate with different broadcasters in the U.S., making fights theoretically tougher to make. "It will make a really compelling fight", Arum told World Boxing News. Terms of that deal were not disclosed. He has boxed only twice in the US, against Wilder and in a seventh-round knockout of former cruiserweight world titlist Steve Cunningham in NY in 2013, a fight in which Cunningham scored a second-round knockdown.

Schwarz, who is 6 foot 5 and fights around 245 pounds, is 24-0 with 16 knockouts and ranked No. 9 by the IBF. He has never faced a remotely top opponent, but he is unbeaten and younger than Fury.
