Tyson Fury belts out Aerosmith and ‘American Pie’ after dominant TKO victory

Tyson Fury took another giant stride towards cementing his legacy as one of the biggest names in heavyweight boxing

Tyson Fury confessed to concerns over ‘ring rust’ as he headed into his 29th professional fight on Saturday against previously-undefeated Tom Schwarz, but he won at a canter, picking up the TKO in round two.

Boxing, and fighting talk, out of the way, it was time for Fury to serenade his wife, Paris with that Steve Tyler/Aerosmith tearjerker, I Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing.

What a tremendous voice.

He was not finished there. Kitted out in a gleaming white and blue floral suit, the lineal heavyweight world champion then got a couple of verses and a rousing chorus of American Pie going in the post-fight press conference.

Before that though, Fury arrived to the ring dressed in homage to (the fictional) Apollo Creed from Rocky IV and immediately had the home fans on his side. Before, during and after the fight, Fury put on a show.

Not for the first time, Fury showed impressive agility and evasiveness in the ring, with Schwarz struggling to land a glove for long stretches and despite furious flurries and combinations.

Fury was the far superior of the fighters and picked off his opponent with ease and the referee was forced to step in as he put the pedal down in round two. Following his 28th career win, Fury declared:

“We’re going to have another fight in New York and then we’re going to hunt down Deontay Wilder!”

After the fight, Fury went to visit Schwarz in his dressing room and told the previously undefeated German that he would get him on his next fight card, then extend an offer for him to come train at his gym.
