Tyson Fury next fight: Deontay Wilder lined up for rematch in 2020

Tyson Fury confirmed he will return to the ring in September or October after brushing aside Tom Schwarz.

But the Brit will not fight Deontay Wilder in a rematch of their thrilling draw until next year.

Fury stopped Schwarz inside two rounds in a punch-perfect performance on Saturday in Las Vegas.

And his next fight is pencilled in for later this year, but not against WBC champion Wilder.

Their first fight ended in a thrilling draw last December in Los Angeles, but boxing fans will have to wait until 2020 for a rematch.

After his win on Saturday, Fury said: "We have got either September 21 or October 5 next and then next year we're going to hunt down Deontay Wilder for that green belt.

"The key tonight was to enjoy myself. I used the jab, caught him with a straight left and it would have put anyone away. I put on 12 pounds and really felt it.

"I came here to have fun and put on a show and I hope everybody enjoyed it as much as I did."
