WATCH Tyson Fury Perform Aerosmith Song After Destroying Tom Schwarz

Tyson Fury made short work of Tom Schwartz on Saturday night, beating the previously undefeated heavyweight in the second round of Fury's first Las Vega fight.

The "Gypsy King" bounced back from December's controversial draw with Deontay Wilder in superb fashion, landing a right hand to drop his German opponent to the floor.

Ahead of his bout with Tom Schwarz in Parsdise, Nevada, Tyson Fury had not boxed in exactly a year.

Fury fought in a conventional stance throughout the first and picked apart Schwarz (24-1, 16 KO) with a Gatlin gun-like jab and controlled the distance.

Fury and Wilder couldn't agree to an immediate rematch after Fury signed with co-promoter Top Rank and muddied the political situation with Wilder, who moved on to stop Dominic Breazealein the first round last month.

And that's not all - after the fight, he gave the crowd a rendition of Aerosmith's "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing".

"I came here to put on a show for Las Vegas and I hope everyone enjoyed it as much as I did". I put on an extra 12 pounds and I really, really feel it.

He knew the rules more than just the average person sitting watching the game courtside so for that Something needs to be done ASAP!

"That was unbelievable", he said following Fury's second-round victory. "I switched up to southpaw and caught him with a straight left and it was a good shot that would've put anyone away".

Fury doesn't have the raw knockout power of Wilder or Joshua, and he won't promise a knockout of Schwarz. In truth, the outcome was never truly in doubt - a knockdown early in the second was the precursor for Schwarz's corner to throw in the white towel shortly after - but the bigger picture is all about that mega-meeting in 2020.

"We're going to have another fight in NY and then we're going to hunt down Deontay Wilder!"

Although Fury had to relinquish his titles during his ring absence, he is still the heavyweight division's lineal champion as the man who beat Klitschko.

"What's next? [Co-promoter] Bob [Arum] will tell you that we have got either September 21 or October 5 and then next year we are going to hold down Deontay Wilder and make him give me that green belt", Fury said.

"People don't talk to me about boxing anymore", Fury said.
