"I'm here headlining in Vegas, and he's (saying) "I want a rematch with Tyson to try and get that loss out of my mind".

In boxing, and especially in the Heavyweight division, anything can happen.

And the Instagram snap has gone down very well with boxing fans ahead of the heavyweight bout.

Who do you think will emerge victorious in tonight's Tyson Fury vs. Tom Schwarz boxing match?

Fury had perhaps re-established himself as the world's leading heavyweight with December's thrilling draw against the American, when his performance deserved victory, and his reputation grew to such an extent he signed a lucrative contract to fight on ESPN out of the USA against an unremarkable opponent.

Tessitore, who will call Fury's fight against Tom Schwarz on ESPN+, spoke to Fightful during a recent media conference call and talked about being impressed with how Fury has looked so much better physically in past months. ESPN+ will stream the main event between the 6-feet-9, 260-pound Fury (27-0-1, 19 KOs) and the 6-feet-5, 240-pound Schwarz (24-0, 16 KOs) from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas (10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT).

Wilder and Fury fought to a draw in Los Angeles in December after an epic 12-round battle at the Staples Center.

"It's been done many different times by many different fighters".

After hurting Schwarz with a combination, the 30-year-old landed a powerful left hand, danced his way out of the corner to resist his opponent and then leave him vulnerable, and then landed another hurtful combination and a left uppercut.

He said: "I'm going to enjoy myself and have fun - that's what I'm here to do".

Fury settled on Schwarz for his next showcase in promoter Bob Arum's quest to turn him into a household name in the US.

The main event between Fury and Schwarz is scheduled to begin at approximately 5am United Kingdom time on Sunday morning. He won this in 2015 after defeating Wladimir Klitschko in Germany. He plans to use his skill to earn a victory that will keep him on track for bigger, flashier stateside fights.

The British heavyweight star stopped Tom Schwarz with 6 seconds left in the second round Saturday night, packing plenty of entertainment into his brief Las Vegas debut. "Tyson Fury is a force of nature".
