Tyson Fury Dodged Seven Punches From Tom Schwarz In Five Seconds During Last Night's Fight

Tyson Fury managed to dodge a seven-punch combo in just five seconds during his fight with Tom Schwarz last night.

Fury went on to win the bout in the second round after landing a flurry of powerful blows on the German.

However, boxing fans were also shown a masterclass in how to avoid punches, with Fury dodging and weaving out of the way of seven strikes from Schwarz.

His quick manoeuvres certainly got fans talking on social media, with one saying the boxer was 'straight out of The Matrix'.

Others praised him for his reaction times, while one fan said simply: "How incredible those head movements are."

Another asked: "When was the last time anyone saw a super heavyweight move like that?"

Someone else compared the interaction to his brother Tommy's reaction to Maura trying to plant a kiss on him in Love Island... erm, we'll let you make your own minds up about that.

Speaking after the fight, Fury said he had been 'slipping and sliding' in the ring.

"I used the jab," he said in the post-fight press conference.

"I was slipping with my hands down and sliding, shifted to southpaw and caught him with a straight left. It was a good shot - it would have put anybody away.

"I got a big man out of there by switching it up. He caught me with a couple, but you can't go swimming and not get wet.

"I came here to have fun and enjoy myself. I don't take it too seriously. I thought I put on a good show and the fans got what they paid for."

And of course, he took the chance to reiterate that he's still keen for a title fight, adding: "We have got either September 21 or October 5 next and then next year we're going to hunt down Deontay Wilder for that green belt."

Top Rank boss Bob Arum, who signed Fury up to a co-promotional deal, said the 30-year-old was a 'force of nature'.

He said: "That was amazing.

"Tyson Fury is a force of nature. This was one of the great shows I've ever seen and not just because of the boxing.

"He's an entertainer. He is truly unique. Now that he's in shape, he can knock out every heavyweight in the world. Deontay Wilder is not going five rounds with him. We will have another fight then we will fight Wilder."
