Watch: Tyson Fury put on a defensive clinic against Tom Schwarz
Not only did Tyson Fury bust open Tom Schwarz’s nose, knock him down, and win via second-round TKO in their fight on Saturday night, but he showcased some next-level defense from a heavyweight.

If you don’t get hit, you can’t get hurt.
Some fighters are defensive specialists and just avoid damage, but Fury also inflicted plenty. After his knockdown in the second, Schwarz’s corner was ready to stop the fight at the same time the referee stopped it.
Here’s a look at some of the highlights, including the knockdown that led to the stoppage:
