The first fight of the 30-year-old Fury's lucrative new co-promotional deal with Top Rank was meant to introduce his violent skills and loquacious character to ESPN's large audience, and he did both - however briefly.
Fury belted out part of Aerosmith's "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" in the ring after his win, and in front of the press later he broke into Don McLean's "American Pie".
The tone of the evening was set from the very start - when Fury made his entrance dressed as Apollo Creed from Rocky IV. It could put anybody away.
National Football League player Tre Watson said: "My man Fury has been studying those old Ali tapes I see".
"I thought it went really well".
Fury, who entered as the heavy favorite, controlled the bout with his jab in the first round before ending it with a devastating combination in the second.
"I came here to have fun and put on a show and I hope everybody enjoyed it as much as I did", Fury said.
As reported by ESPN, Tyson Fury was getting PAID for tonight's bout with Schwarz.

Both are likely to miss significant time next season - though Thompson has a chance to return in February or March. He was the game's leading scorer with 30 points before the injury.
Fury switched to a south paw stance in the second round, then appeared to taunt Schwarz as he put his back to the ropes and eluded several punches with his hands down at this sides.
Fury's marketers have been clever in their efforts to introduce him to the American scene.
"I got a big man out of there by switching it up".
It will be some occasion, certainly a more competitive one than this bout, which saw Fury extend his unbeaten record to 29 fights by dismissing the previously undefeated German challenger Schwarz and earn around £10 million in the process. Referee Kenny Bayless stopped it at roughly the same moment Schwarz's corner threw the white towel into the ring.
He is likely to fight an as yet unnamed opponent before that in September or October, possibly in NY.

After another tune-up fight, Fury said, "next year we are going to hold down Deontay Wilder to give me that green belt", referring to Wilder's WBC title.
