Tyson Fury's second clash with Deontay Wilder set for February 2020

Schwarz's record is filled with little-known opposition and he hasn't fought a Top 10 ranked opponent.

Tyson Fury's debut on ESPN has been made official.

This marks the first fight of the new deal signed by Fury with ESPN and Top Rank in February, that saw any hopes of a rematch of his 2018 classic with Deontay Wilder go up in smoke.

Tyson Fury's next-fight is almost set, as the former unified world heavyweight champion will square off with Tom Schwarz.

The 30-year-old Briton has already announced he will fight in Las Vegas, rumoured to be held at the Thomas Mack Center, and reports have suggested he will take on an unbeaten German prospect.

Fury and Wilder could not negotiate an immediate rematch, with the Brit signing a multi-year, multi-fight agreement with United States broadcaster ESPN and promoted by Top Rank's Bob Arum alongside Frank Warren.

The pair put on one of the most entertaining boxing fights of the year.

He might not look anything like his more recognisable sibling but there's clearly plenty of the famous Fury fight in Tommy Fury.

"I'm very fit, very ready, I can't wait to fight", Fury said.

Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder are set to meet in February 2020 in the hotly anticipated rematch, according to Fury's USA promoter Bob Arum. Terms of that deal were not disclosed.

Schwarz stands at 6ft 5ins and has won 16 of his 24 bouts inside the distance, but he has not fought at world level and a fighter of Fury's calibre would be a huge step up for him. After going all 12 rounds, the Englishman seemingly outboxed the WBC champion, however, Wilder scored the only two knockdowns of the fight. He has fought all of his fights in Germany except for two that were in the Czech Republic.
