Fury was stealing the show before the fight started, recreating Apollo Creed's 'Living in America' entrance and that would be just the beginning of an all-round performance.

He started the fight well, landing multiple jabs in a dominant first round before taking complete control in the second.

After producing some wonderful movement to avoid multiple punches from Schwarz, Fury completed the job.

While Schwarz was able to resume, the fight was over soon after, stopped after Fury continued to attack in the corner.

There was even more to come from Fury, who belted out part of Aerosmith's 'I Don't Want to Miss a Thing' in the ring after his win.
