But you cannot ignore him! Tyson Fury, the self-styled Gypsy King and lineal heavyweight champion is stepping back into the ring for his first outing of the year against up-and-coming and unbeaten German star Tom Schwarz at the iconic MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Schwarz, meanwhile, has a powerful straight right hand that has earned him 16 KOs from 24 unbeaten fights, but is susceptible to counters with that tempting overexposed chin. Should Tyson get through his Las Vegas debut, the potential prizes are massive, with dust-ups against Dillian Whyte, Deontay Wilder and even Anthony Joshua despite his surprise defeat at the hands of Andy Ruiz Jr on the cards.

People are sick of hearing all the same stuff with him. Grow up and fight somebody. They can only beat Tyson Fury with a stick, while I am asleep!
But he got up and carried on fighting until the final bell. This time in the press conference before the fight.
