Lots of boxing fans from across the Atlantic are coming to Las Vegas to see if fighter Tyson Fury is legit.

Fury is facing a German heavyweight named Tom Schwarz. Both competitors met at Wednesday’s final press conference. The heavyweight division has been trending upward of late with Deontay Wilder’s dominance and the upset win of Andy Ruiz Jr. over Anthony Joshua. 

The media frenzy was unlike anything we’ve seen in a while Wednesday afternoon at the MGM Grand.
