Results from Las Vegas

By David Robinett at ringside

Despite being outweighed by thirty pounds, Italian heavyweight Guido Vianello (4-0, 4 KOs) made quick work of 268-lb. Keenan Hickman (6-4-1, 2 KOs), knocking Hickman down three times in the second round to force a referee’s stoppage at 2:22 of the same round, in a scheduled six-round contest. Vianello, a 2016 Olympian who lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury recently described as a “tanned Greek God” after sparring with him in preparation for tonight’s card, certainly fought like one, bouncing and moving well while raining sharp jabs and combinations down on the overmatched Hickman. Vianello nearly had Hickman down at the end of round one, stopped only by the bell. In the second stanza Vianello dropped Hickman all three times with his right hook before referee Tony Weeks jumped in to stop the beating.

Opening the undercard action at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, German heavyweight Peter Kadiru (4-0, 1 KO) coasted to a four-round unanimous decision over MMA fighter Juan Torres (3-2-1, 1 KO). Kadiru, a decorated amateur who won a super heavyweight gold medal at the 2014 Youth Olympic Games, fought tentatively considering the level of his opposition, relying primarily on his straight right hand to land solid scoring blows, but never putting Torres in any danger. Scores were 40-36 on all three cards.
Fury TKO Schwarz round 2

Schwarz was very slow, held his guard high most of the fight. Fury is an ungainly character, moving well and snuck a few uppercuts in that bloodied Schwarz up in the second round before a knockdown. Fury then cornered Schwarz and the ref called it off.
Tyson Fury demolishes Tom Schwarz in two

By David Robinett at ringside

In the main event at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, the “Gypsy King” Tyson Fury staked his claim as “the man” in the heavyweight division, defending his lineal heavyweight championship with a prime Roy Jones-esque beatdown of undefeated contender Tom Schwarz, beating his German opponent into submission until referee Kenny Bayles jumped in at the same time Schwarz’s corner threw in the towel at 2:54 of the second round.

Unlike his superb-but-cautious boxing effort against Deontay Wilder, Fury (28-0-1, 20 KOs) didn’t appear to have a care in the world against Schwarz (24-1, 16 KOs), starting off as usual by utilizing his length and popping his long jab to keep his opponent safely at bay. But quickly sensing Schwarz didn’t pose the same risk as the Bronze Bomber, Fury starting using both hands as leads, switching stances, and mugging to Schwarz and the crowd.

In round two, after a few slick combinations busted Schwarz’s nose, Fury unloaded a series of powerful straight hands with Schwarz against the ropes, the last three landing cleanly through Schwarz’s guard and dropping him to the canvas. Schwarz beat the count, bleeding profusely, but quickly got trapped in a corner where Fury unloaded with a series of uncontested haymakers with Schwarz helplessly covered up. Both the referee and Schwarz’s corner simultaneously moved to stop the fight to rescue Schwarz from further punishment. A jubilant Fury even sang some Aerosmith from the ring during his post-fight interview.
