Tyson Fury Goes Full Matrix As He Dodges Seven Punches In Five Seconds

Tyson Fury dodged a seven-punch combo from Tom Schwarz in five seconds on his Las Vegas debut.

The self-proclaimed 'Gypsy King' produced a masterful performance last night as he stopped the German challenger to record his 28th professional victory.

He landed a flurry of powerful shots to halt Schwarz, but the lineal heavyweight champion dazzled boxing fans with his Matrix-like head movement.

Fury bobbed and weaved on the ropes while dodging Schwarz's relentless attack in a moment of brilliance.

Muhammed Ali's famous words "float like a butterfly, sting like a bee" comes to mind.

"I used the jab," said Fury in the post-fight press conference.

"I was slipping with my hands down and sliding shifted to southpaw and caught him with a straight left. It was a good shot it would have put anybody away.

"I got a big man out of there by switching it up. He caught me with a couple, but you can't go swimming and not get wet.

"I came here to have fun and enjoy myself. I don't take it too seriously. I thought I put on a good show and the fans got what they paid for."

Top Rank boss Bob Arum, who signed Fury to a lucrative co-promotional deal, praised the heavyweight for his stunning outing.

"That was amazing," he said following Fury's second-round victory.

"Tyson Fury is a force of nature. This was one of the great shows I've ever seen and not just because of the boxing.

"He's an entertainer. He is truly unique. Now that he's in shape, he can knock out every heavyweight in the world. Deontay Wilder is not going five rounds with him. We will have another fight then we will fight Wilder."

Fury is set to return to the ring on September 21st or October 5th, before rematching WBC title holder Deontay Wilder in early 2020.

Will Fury dethrone Wilder? Let us know what you think.
