Speaking to fellow panellists, Gutierrez said: "I just wanted to let you guys know what it feels like to watch Tyson Fury, a man who's been very open about his beliefs including the fact that homosexuality and the acceptance of it is a sign that the world is ending". I was slipping [punches] with my hands down and sliding and shifted to southpaw, and I caught him with a straight left. "I thought I put on a good show and the fans got what they paid for". "It would have put anybody away". Fury got mad, battering Schwarz with a combination and dropping him to a knee with a huge right hand to the head. It doesn't get any bigger. In truth, the outcome was never truly in doubt - a knockdown early in the second was the precursor for Schwarz's corner to throw in the white towel shortly after - but the bigger picture is all about that mega-meeting in 2020.
Schwarz, who was fighting in the United States for the first time and facing a top opponent also for the first time, was a heavy underdog looking to pull an enormous upset that would have been even bigger than the one Andy Ruiz Jr. pulled on June 1 in NY when he scored four knockdowns and shockingly stopped Anthony Joshua in the seventh round to take his three heavyweight world title belts in a shocker.
"There is no heavyweight in the world that can beat him, now that he is in shape", Arum said.
"It'll be brilliant to fight in NY [before then]". At least as many of them were watching this fight between an entertaining Englishman and an anonymous German, which had been viewed here as an alien curiosity on USA desert soil.
The British boxer's brother, Love Island star Tommy Fury has also come under fire too for allegedly using a homophobic slur.More news: India v Pakistan - Who will win?

Whyte has been deserving of a title fight for some time now.
It is little secret Fury expects to fight Wilder in a rematch next year, and having planned to fight at least once more before the end of 2019, he revealed he already has dates of September 21 or October 5 agreed in principle before continuing to play the showman by singing a song for the 9,000 present in the arena.
With a gentler public persona and a commitment to opening dialogue about mental health issues, Fury's redemption has rekindled the interest of many boxing fans turned off by his past homophobic and sexist statements.
While Ruiz and Wilder own the heavyweight belts, Fury proved he is still a major factor in the division.
