Britain’s undisputed Heavyweight boxing king, Tyson Fury (27-0-1, 19 KO), makes his inaugural ESPN+ appearance TONIGHT (Sat., June 15, 2019) inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, taking on undefeated Tom Schwarz (24-0, 16 KO).
MMAmania.com will deliver LIVE coverage of the main event below (“Fury vs. Schwarz” will likely make the walk around 11 p.m. ET). Meanwhile, the ESPN+ main card will begin at 10 p.m. ET.
Fury — who held all but one of the major Heavyweight titles after a 2015 decision over Wladimir Klitchsko — missed all of 2016 and 2017 while struggling with mental health issues. He got a pair of get-well victories in 2018 before challenging Deontay Wilder, whom he soundly outboxed for most of the fight and arguably deserved the decision against despite taking two brutal knockdowns.
He wound up settling for a draw, and while Wilder dealt with Dominic Breazeale, Fury signed to face Schwarz, an unbeaten but untested German.
The fight will be joined on ESPN+ by a Light Heavyweight clash between former title challengers Jesse Hart (25-2, 21 KO) and Sullivan Barrera (22-2, 14 KO). Hart is making his 175-pound debut after two unsuccessful cracks at Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramirez, while Barrera steps in for injured former champion Eleider Alvarez on short notice.
