"I came here to put on a show for Las Vegas and I hope everyone enjoyed it as much as i did", Fury said.
While the undefeated WBO intercontinental champion made a decision to follow in the footsteps of fellow heavyweight Andy Ruiz.
Fury is now set to take on WBC heavyweight champ Deontay Wilder in a rematch, assuming Wilder takes care of business against Luis Ortiz.
Tyson Fury has some soul.
Joshua's seventh-round stoppage by Ruiz came as a huge surprise as his opponent had been given barely one month's notice for the fight and weighed in at more than 20 pounds (nine kilograms) heavier than the Briton.
Fury referred to Wilder's announcement on social media May 31 regarding he and Fury having an agreement in place for a rematch early in 2020.
During a pair of comeback bouts in 2018 against Sefer Seferi and Francesco PIaneta, fans witnessed an nearly disinterested version of Fury who, given the vast difference in skill between him and his opponents, was content to clown and box from the outside.
Records on line as Woods, Rose target U.S. Open
Two-time defending champion Brooks Koepka and Woods carded 69 and 70, respectively, the latter doing it with 11 one-putts. Before Rose got to the course for an afternoon round, Scott Piercy spent ample time at the top of the leaderboard.
Coming into his recent fight with former champion Anthony Joshua - Ruiz found himself the butt of many jokes online because of his physique.
After starring in London, Dublin, Dusseldorf, New York and Los Angeles, the Manchester native finally gets his Vegas debut against Germany's unbeaten Tom Schwarz at the MGM Grand Garden.
"I thought his night against Klitschko was a high water mark". "Tyson Fury is a force of nature". And it takes more than a punch to knock me down and make me stay down.
The Gypsy King was so pumped he even serenaded the crowd with the Aerosmith Classic " I don't want to miss a thing". "I think me and Wilder beat Andy Ruiz quite comfortably". This will be bigger than winning a world heavyweight title.
Although Tyson Fury is the heavyweight division's lineal champion and one of its best fighters in the past few years, this British behemoth would be a gifted entertainer in just about any arena.
Concerns persisted that the rounded abilities he traditionally favours over power and strength meant he would win without the sense of drama generated against Wilder and instead effortlessly out-jab Schwarz in the same way he once did Dereck Chisora, but he instead fought to make a statement and succeeded in doing exactly that. Schwarz never appeared to have a chance of pulling a similar upset - not with the 6-foot-9 Fury towering over him and fighting in crisp form.
