‘He Was A Punching Bag’ – Deontay Wilder On Tyson Fury’s Win Over Tom Schwarz

Deontay Wilder was unimpressed by Tyson Fury’s win over Tom Schwarz in Las Vegas on Saturday night, only rating the Gypsy King’s performance as ‘okay’.

Fury returned to the ring for the first time since his dramatic draw against Wilder in December, ruthlessly dispatching the younger, unbeaten Schwarz with a flurry of punches in the second round.

He looked in fine form, ducking and weaving to befuddle and frustrate Schwarz, though Wilder – who only needed 137 seconds to KO Dominic Breazeale – felt it was not much of a contest.

‘It was a cool performance. It wasn’t much of an opponent. I think (Schwarz) only threw four punches. He was a punching bag,’ the WBC heavyweight champion said.

‘Fury did what he was supposed to. They’re trying to promote him up, saying things, selling this story about him over and over again, talking about him as the lineal champion. … It’s building him up. But the performance was just okay.’

He continued: ‘He was a better Fury against me, in A-plus, tip-top shape. That was the best Fury you’ll ever see in his career. We know Fury can box, especially against a punching bag like Schwarz. We want to see him do the same thing in tougher fights. He did the same thing to that guy (Francesco Pianeta) I watched him fight in Belfast last year. When Fury doesn’t see you as a threat, he’s going to showboat, change his foot position. At no time did you see Fury change to southpaw on me. If he thought about it, he thought very differently very quickly, because I’m too dangerous for him to try that stuff against me.’
