Tyson Fury fights for the first time on Saturday night since his draw with Deontay Wilder back in December.
The ‘Gypsy King’ is making his Las Vegas debut against the unbeaten German, and the fight is the first of his exclusive deal with ESPN.
He is expected to beat Schwarz – who is ranked as the 56th-best heavyweight in the world by Boxrec – with relative ease, but has also been warned to learn from Anthony Joshua’s shock defeat to Andy Ruiz Jr.
But according to Fury, the preparation hasn’t been perfect, as he told Boxing Social that he had a fight with his brother earlier on Tuesday.
He suggested that stresses over outside influences on fight week led to a dust-up, which he downplayed by joking that he “nutted” his sibling.
“Me and my brother Shane had a fist fight earlier today,” Fury told Boxing Social.
“Just arguing over stuff like tickets or whatever.
“Everyone wants to come here and get tickets and [sic] at me for stuff and ‘I need this and I need that’, but I’m in fight week, I don’t want to know.
“But when I say this people want to punch me in the face. So I slipped a few and nutted him.
“It’s life, isn’t it? It’s reality. It is what it is.”
Fury has apparently already agreed and signed a deal to rematch Deontay Wilder in early 2020 for the latter’s WBC world heavyweight championship, but will have an interim fight later this year.
Despite this, however, the lineal heavyweight champion is determined to not get ahead of himself.
He insisted that he would not look past WBO inter-continental heavyweight champion Schwarz, and would not fight again if he didn’t win.
“I’ve no idea, no interest in what happens next,” he continued.
“As far as I’m concerned, I’m retired after Tom Schwarz. That’s how I look at it.
“I don’t look past anybody, if I don’t beat Tom Schwarz I won’t get another fight, simple as.
“I only take it one fight at a time, I’ve said this my whole life, when I had Wilder signed before I fought [Francesco] Pianeta I didn’t look past Pianeta.”
