As reported by BBC Sport, Fury said: 'I'm very fit, very ready; I can't wait to fight.
Schwarz has been chosen to take on Tyson Fury in his first return to the ring since a dramatic bout with Deontay Wilder last December. "Tom Schwarz is a young, fresh and ambitious fighter, but I'm going to put on a good show as usual".
Schwarz, 24, is ranked number two in the world with the WBO and has 24 wins from 24 bouts, 18 coming via stoppage. He has boxed only twice in the US, against Wilder and in a seventh-round knockout of former cruiserweight world titlist Steve Cunningham in NY in 2013, a fight in which Cunningham scored a second-round knockdown.
Fury's last contest in the United States of America drew plaudits for its drama, as he rose from the canvas in the 12th round to share a controversial draw with Wilder. Top Rank offered Wilder a multifight deal to fight an interim bout for $12.5 million this summer followed by a rematch worth at least $20 million with Fury in the fall, but he turned it down and instead made a deal with Showtime to fight his mandatory challenger, Dominic Breazeale, on May 18 in NY.Читайте также: Is Lonzo Ball leaving Big Baller Brand for Nike?
However, the 24-year-old has fought just twice outside of his native Germany and has yet to face anyone of Fury's class.
Though fans were understandably clamoring for a rematch between the two heavyweight stars, Deontay Wilder has instead been booked for a showdown with Dominic Breazeale, which will go down inside the Barclay's Center in Brooklyn in May. Me and Wilder have to have this rematch.
Wilder faces Breazeale on 18 May, while Joshua takes on American Jarrell Miller in NY on 1 June.
In an earlier interview, Top Rank boss Bob Arum told World Boxing News they wanted to "get a guy who hadn't tasted a loss".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
