Tyson Fury vs Tom Schwartz Betting and Odds Preview
After the controversial draw versus Deontay Wilder in December 2018, Tyson Fury is back in the ring again. This time, he’ll face German boxer Tom Schwarz in a heavyweight bout on June 15, 2019, at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. The fight will serve as a warm-up for Fury’s eventual rematch vs. Wilder or a title bout with Anthony Joshua which fans have been waiting for a long time.
As soon as the fight was announced, boxing experts have slammed Fury for picking Schwarz over a Wilder rematch. This will be the first of Fury’s five ESPN fights after the English boxer signed a deal with the broadcaster reportedly worth £80 million. Dillian Whyte was especially vocal against Fury’s move, slamming him for facing the undefeated and virtually unknown German instead of a high-profile name. Once again, talk about Fury avoiding the big guns is ripe, although his coach has shut down those rumours. The fact is that Schwarz is one of the best European heavyweights, and just like Fury, he has yet to suffer defeat.
The 24-year old German boxer is ranked among the top 10 heavyweight boxers by the IBF and WBO as well. He’s number 11 on BoxRec’s list, ranked higher than anyone on the list Fury received. That doesn’t make him a pushover. Schwarz has won all his 24 fights and will definitely put up a fight against the Gypsy King.
Fury, on the other hand, is looking at this fight as a warm-up to an eventual long-awaited match against Anthony Joshua. Bookies have already started offering odds for Tyson Fury’s next fight, favouring the English boxer over Schwarz. However, a relatively unknown boxer such as Schwarz will definitely be looking to take down a former champion and that’s what makes him so dangerous.

If you think the match will end in a draw, which is highly unlikely in our opinion, the odds are 33/1.
At 1/66, betting on Fury is pointless. The English boxer was always going to be the favourite in a fight against an unheralded boxer, but those odds are not worth a penny.
