TYSON FURY is reportedly in ferocious form ahead of his fight against Tom Schwarz on June 15.
The Gypsy King will return to the US just over six months after his thrilling, yet controversial draw against Deontay Wilder.
And if reports from the US are to be believed, Schwarz is really up against it when he comes face to face with the former unified heavyweight champ.
American boxing insider Mike Coppinger, who was one of the first to break Andy Ruiz Jr being chosen to replace Jarrell Miller as Anthony Joshua’s opponent, tweeted out about how Fury’s sparring is going.
He wrote: “Speaking of sparring, I’m hearing Tyson Fury has been destroying his sparring partners; dropping them and has had to send several home.”
Fury will be the big favourite when he takes to the Las Vegas ring on his second appearance in the US.
Speaking about the fight, the 30-year-old said: “I’m very fit, very ready; I can’t wait to fight.
“Schwarz is unbeaten, young, fresh and ambitious.
“When you start as a little kid, you dream of cracking America.
“I am going to go back and be on the biggest possible audience.”

Schwarz, 25, has won all 24 of his fights with 16 of those victories by knockout.
This will be his first fight outside of Europe. 23 of his bouts took place in his native Germany, while one took place in the Czech Republic.
But Ruiz Jr proved against Joshua, anything is possible in heavyweight boxing.
