The self-proclaimed 'Gypsy King' takes on the unheralded Schwarz in Las Vegas and ahead of the heavyweight contest, he's stunned boxing fans with his lighting hand-speed and flawless movement.
He took part in a workout at the MGM Grand Hotel and he showed off his hand speed, head movement and footwork in an impressive sequence.

It's not the first time McGregor and Fury have exchanged words. The lineal heavyweight champion hailed the Irishman for transcending MMA.
"I think Conor has transcended the game of MMA," he said about McGregor.
"He's set precedents, he's set the game on fire. He's definitely a game-changer in MMA.
"He's crossed over, he's fought Mayweather, he's become a massive superstar and he should definitely be very proud of himself."
McGregor responded to the kind words by issuing a message to Fury.
The Gypsy King!
You are a top man, Tyson!
Thank you :punch: https://t.co/kbB1zuRjCM
