With Tyson Fury (27-0-1, 19 KOs) set to return to action this weekend on ESPN+, in what’s really designed to be a showcase fight against Tom Schwarz (24-0, 16 KOs), the LINEAL titleholder is obviously brimming with confidence.

Fury, 30, will be fighting in Las Vegas for the first time in his career, and when asked by RingTV about how he’s fitting in at the location, Fury gave a Fury-like response.

“I’m fitting in like a dildo; nice and easy,” Fury told The Ring before the company he was keeping erupted into laughter.

But getting more serious about his expectations for the fight, against a man who’s rated #56 in the world by BoxRec, Fury says he thinks Schwarz will take confidence from Andy Ruiz just recently upsetting the odds by knocking out Anthony Joshua.

“He’s just seen Andy Ruiz beat (Anthony) Joshua and that will have elevated him to new levels. But, honestly, I don’t care. I can deal with anybody who’s in my way. I cannot be defeated. I must break him.”

Fury would continue by saying that he plans on having two more fights after this outing before going into an anticipated rematch with Deontay Wilder (which would push it into sometime next year), while also saying that he’s loving the U.S. so much that he probably will never fight in the U.K. again.
