“The Gypsy King” is also apparently a karaoke king.

As Floyd Mayweather might say, it was “easy work” for lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury to obliterate an overmatched Tom Schwarz in the second round of their fight Saturday night in Las Vegas.

The bout, streamed by ESPN Plus, saw Fury easily control the first round–at one point dropping his hands and ducking four straight punches from his hapless German opponent– then knock Schwarz down in the second and seemingly break his nose, before another spate of combinations forced the referee to call off the beatdown.

The 6-foot-9 Fury, who is considered the slickest and most skillful boxer of the current heavyweights. as well as one of boxing’s biggest personalities, came into the ring dressed in a red, white and blue top hat and trunks, just like Apollo Creed in Rocky IV.

After his blowout victory, Fury confirmed his upcoming rematch with hard-punching heavyweight titleist Deontay Wilder, and then, naturally, belted out an Aerosmith song in the ring.

“Next year, we’re gonna hunt down Deontay Wilder and make him give me that green belt,” the British star said, before taking the mic and singing “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” to his wife in the ring and yelling, “I love you America!”

Fury also said he’ll be back on either Sept. 21 or Oct. 5, before the highly-anticipated 2020 rematch with Wilder. If Wilder gets past his September 28 rematch with Luis Ortiz, look for Fury/Wilder II to happen early next year.

It is by far the biggest heavyweight fight to be made in light of their wildly entertaining draw last December, as well as the humbling of the one-time third major heavyweight in the picture, Anthony Joshua, who got floored four times and stopped by Snickers-chomping Californian Andy Ruiz a few weeks ago in one of the biggest upsets in boxing history.
