TYSON FURY'S next fight has been announced with the former world champion set to take on the relatively unknown Tom Schwarz.
The Gypsy King was expected to have a rematch with Deontay Wilder but will come up against Schwarz who is ranked number two in the world with the WBO as Fury fights for the first time in Las Vegas.
Fury has spoken about his next fight:
"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."
When is the fight?
The fight night will take place on Saturday, June 15.
The Mack Center in Las Vegas will host the event.
What channel is it on and can I live stream it?
The Gypsy King signed an £80million, five-fight deal with ESPN to fight across the US.
More information will be released by ESPN nearer to the event.
Why is Fury NOT fighting Deontay Wilder?
Many fans expected Fury to have a re-match against Deontay Wilder.
The pair's last fight ended in a draw in December with both fighters believing they had won.
Fury is fresh off the back of a five-fight £80million ESPN deal and was expected to take a re-match with WBC champ Deontay Wilder after a controversial draw.
Instead Dominic Breazeale will get a shot at the strap on May 18, with the Gypsy King looking at alternatives.
Asked about the rematch, Fury said: "Join the club. Me and Wilder have to have this rematch.
"I have to take care of Schwarz, Wilder has to take care of Dominic Breazeale and then I say we get it on.
"He has gone quiet; I send him messages and he doesn't reply any more."
