Dana White ranks the top heavyweight boxers

Fury and Schwarz go head to head

Fury and Schwarz go head to head

Although Tyson Fury is the heavyweight division's lineal champion and one of its best fighters in recent years, this British behemoth would be a gifted entertainer in just about any arena. It will also be the first time that he has fought outside of his own country.

Of course, Klitschko was a heavy favorite when he fought Fury back in 2015 - but Tyson came out victorious. ending Wlad's decade-long reign as heavyweight champ.

Fury, who has been criticised for making homophobic and sexist remarks in the past, also diplomatically attempted to stop influential Top Rank promoter Bob Arum, 87, from complimenting female fighter Mikaela Mayer on her appearance. The main goal for Fury is to look good against Schwarz, earn a victory, and keep himself relevant in a heavyweight division that's starting to get crowded. I just wanted to prove to people that there is a way back. That's why I'm so happy, so positive all the time. What's to say my chin hasn't gone?

After an awkward moment of silence, he answers: "I'm not fighting Wilder, am I?" Schwarz has won his last three fights by knockout. He would be nowhere near Las Vegas in any other circumstances. "Schwarz is supported by his mother and his delightful grandmother Elle, his 'lucky charm" who played a big part in raising him from 'a bullied fat schoolboy" to a muscular heavyweight contender.

Fury has taken the advice of former world champion Ricky Hatton in staying away from Las Vegas strip hotels in order to avoid distraction but his face has been emblazoned on billboards and blackjack tables in Sin City as part of a push to build his USA profile.

"Yeah, I wouldn't say that I disagree with that you know (ranking Tyson Fury as the top heavyweight)".

Even by Fury's standards he has proved engaging in the build-up to this fight, making his struggles with depression and suicide known to the USA audience and even complimenting Schwarz on his appearance in a largely tension-free preamble.

"I can only try and be myself", Fury said. You're always in that territory. But the one thing that he's going to make certain of is that he's going to entertain while doing what he was born to do.

He remains on course to again fight WBC champion Wilder next year, when an immediate rematch had previously appeared inevitable, and to the extent that they are already focusing on the risky, undefeated American.

Warrington's final Leeds bow?

Josh Warrington 28-0-0 (-325) vs. Fury's cause is mental health, and the 30-year-old won't shy away from it. "I managed to do that and I'm very thankful for everything turning out the way that it did". There is nothing else that I wanted to do. 'Not even me, ' he says. You can come back from anything. "It's about ambition, drive and vision".

The key in this fight will be if Kid Galahad can slow down Warrington's attack.

"It's destiny", said Galahad.

"I am living the dream". I love to inspire people to get better and change their lives as I did mine.
