That's all for tonight. Here you can read a full report on the main event. Thank you as always for following us.
"The key was to amuse myself," says Fury. "I used the push. I slid my hands down and slid southfoot and caught him with a straight left. It was a good recording that would not have led anyone astray.
He adds, "I came here to do a show for Las Vegas, and I hope everyone liked it as much as I did. "
Fury says he will fight again this year on September 21st or October 5th …" and then next year we will hunt down Deontay Wilder and get him to give me this green belt! "
Tyson Fury wins in the second round with TKO!
Fury joins a cracking uppercut from a south paw pose that ignites the crowd. Black opens and lands a few shots and only bends Fury into the corner so the big man gets away and shoots back a combination. Black supports Fury once more on the ropes and boots, but Fury evades almost every stroke that was a stylish upper body movement. Now it's anger that goes up and down, black under a hail of blows. He gets to his feet, but Fury comes for the goal. He hits power shots one after the other until Kenny Bayless puts an end to it six seconds before the end.
In the opening round, Fury almost exclusively shoots black, while the German forward and backward tries to cut off the ring. Anger goes well with the blow and touches black at will. Now he starts to put his right hand behind it. He relaxed and moved nicely around the ring. A light round for him.
Guard's Unofficial Score: Fury 10-9 Black (19659025] 23.59 EDT
The fighters were announced. They met in the middle of the ring to receive the final instructions from referee Kenny Bayless. The seconds are off. And we will pick it up from here around the clock.
Let's go! We just sat through the national anthems for Germany, Great Britain and the USA. Now the lights are off and the fighters are entering. First it's Black who shows up to Bob Marley's One Love and wears a black robe with a golden trimming. So serious. Then Fury comes in a completely black robe and approaches slowly in the tunnel Gala's Freed From Desire … then he tears it off as he walks into the arena to unveil an Uncle Sam outfit. He builds Apollo Creed's star-studded Ring of Rocky IV. He knows how it all ended, right?
9,102 spectators are present tonight, which is about half the capacity of the arena. The upper bowl has been hung down so it does not feel empty.
Jesse Hart has won a unanimous decision over Sullivan Barrera with 99-90 96-93 and 97-92. Born in North Philadelphia, a former super middleweight world champion title challenger, Barrera dropped eighth and ran home on his debut in the light heavyweight division.
Hand in the seventh round, "says Hart. "I had a hand. My right hand was completely shot. After hurting and dropping him, I could not really do it. That's why you see the left hook coming. As you can see, I can beat with both hands. I take his hat off. He came to fight.
He adds, "I think I am a force to be reckoned with. If I had both hands, it would have been different in my opinion.
Next: Tyson Fury vs. Tom Schwarz.
Between Jesse Hart and Sullivan Barrera we have a keen cook. We're in the middle of the planned 10-round half-heavyweight affair, the last of the undercard bouts before today's main event, and both guys had problems at various points.
Mikaela Mayer has just won a unanimous decision over Lizbeth Crespo in ten rounds of 98-92, 99-91 and 100-90. The US Olympic gold medalist was in full command from the third round and improved her record to eleven victories in as many pro bouts.
"I'm ready for a World Champion fight next," said Mayer. "It's time for the champions to join me in the ring."
She adds, "Crespo has been a tough challenge, but I've mastered it and I'm ready to turn to bigger things."
Distraught alarm! We just had a surprise on the map when Albert Bell handed over his first professional defeat to Andy Vences, the super featherweight challenger, in an entertaining 10-round super-featherweight fight. Bell (15: 0, 5 KOs) prevailed against his opponent from start to finish and won with 97: 93 on all three judges cards.
"I worked so hard for it," Bell said afterwards. "In my first 10-lap race I went out and set my unbeaten record against a top player. They do not see that too much anymore. I've been tallied and that shows I'm a fighter to be taken seriously with £ 130. "
a disappointed Vences (22-1-1, 12 KOs) said:" I fought against someone who did not want to fight. I searched the whole fight for the action and put it under pressure. I thought I hurt him and connect with the bigger hits. This is the problem. "
Previously, Fury's friend and teammate Isaac Lowe strengthened his credentials as a featherweight candidate with a unanimous victory over Duarn Vue.
Mikaela Mayer, representing the US at the Rio Olympics, was now in the ring for a 10-round super featherweight fight against Lizbeth Crespo. Another 10-lap run between lightweight heavyweights Jesse Hart and Sullivan Barrera will follow, then Fury and Black will make their ringwalks.
Hello and welcome to the MGM Grand Garden Arena for today's tough fight between Tyson Fury and Tom Schwarz. The last time we saw the gypsy king, he had slapped Deontay Wilder with slaps for most of his evening in December, disappointing the WBC heavyweight champion with an effective push and skill movement, and even a knockdown in the ninth round survived to roar at night last roll. He was dropped a second time by a violent combination on the last lap, which seemed to be unconscious on the descent, before he somehow managed to bounce back and settle for a draw. Although Fury failed in his attempt to regain the world heavyweight championship, he beat Wladimir Klitschko but never lost in the ring. In fact, Fury signed a contract with Top Rank and ESPN.
This partnership begins tonight with what can only be described as a marker fight. Black, a German who was ranked number 2 by the World Boxing Organization, despite being unknown to all but the most stubborn observers until the April announcement of the game, looks back on a tight 15-centimeter race in 24 fights , including 16 wins, the distance remained undefeated. But the ledger is, let's say, a light on identifiable names and contains only a 10-round player, a unanimous decision over the normal Dennis Lewandowski three years ago. When I arrived on Thursday, he was a 12-1 longshot in MGM Grand Sportsbook, and the number has dropped to 15: 1 since then. 19659065]
