Fury, wearing shorts with the American stars and stripes, entered the ring to James Brown's Living in America.
Fury, 30, backed Schwarz to the ropes in the second, driving a right hand home to drop the German to the floor. Seconds later, with Schwarz bloodied and under attack, his corner threw in the towel as the bout was waved off.
This was billed as a showcase bout for Fury in what was his first contest of a lucrative deal with ESPN. The marketing of the former world heavyweight champion was there for all to see as he took off a black robe during his MGM Grand ring walk to reveal the US stars and stripes on a second gown.
Fury confirmed in the post fight interview that he’ll be fighting again in September/October, before chasing down Deontay Wilder for the highly anticipated rematch.
