Tyson Fury next fight: When does Gypsy King return to action? Who is he facing? Where is the bout?
Tyson Fury will return to the ring in June this summer as he takes on German fighter Tom Schwarz in Las Vegas.
Fury’s last bout saw him contest one of 2018’s best fights when he and Deontay Wilder produced a thrilling draw at Los Angeles’ Staples Center.
A rematch between the two superstar heavyweights had been talked about for several weeks but that was shelved and the two have now secured other opponents.
Wilder vs Fury 2 is expected to happen in the near future while the Gypsy King is also still looking to take on the division’s current top dog Anthony Joshua.

The Fury camp held talks with Joshua’s representatives but no deal could be struck and that mega British bout will have to wait as well.
All three heavyweight stars will be in action this summer and it’s Fury’s next bout which will likely garner the least attention in terms of prestige or meaning.
But The Furious One’s incredible return to top-level boxing will make his next outing just as intriguing to fans.
Tyson Fury next fight: When is he returning and who is he facing?
Fury is set to face Tom Schwarz at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas on June 15.
The 24-year-old German boasts an unbeaten record of 24-0 with 16 KOs but has never fought anyone of Fury’s calibre and has only ever boxed outside of his home country twice before.
His last fight saw him knock out Croatian Kristijan Krstacic inside two rounds in March this year.
Fury said of his next opponent: “I’m very fit, very ready, I can’t wait to fight. Schwarz is unbeaten, young, fresh and ambitious.”
Asked about the rematch with Wilder, Fury added: “Me and Wilder have to have this rematch.
“I have to take care of Schwarz, Wilder has to take care of Dominic Breazeale [his next fight in May] and then I say we get it on. He has gone quiet. I send him messages and he doesn’t reply any more.”
