The unbeaten British heavyweight made light work of Germany's Tom Schwarz at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday evening.

Fury claimed victory in the second round with a technical knockout of Schwarz, to take his professional record to 28-0-1 with 20 knockouts.

The 30-year-old revealed in the aftermath that he intends on fighting one more time this year before facing Deontay Wilder in a rematch of last December's draw.

"What's next? Next year we're going to hunt down Deontay Wilder for that green belt," Fury said.

Fury also reserved some choice words for Anthony Joshua following the win. The former WBA, WBO and IBF champion suffered a shock defeat to Andy Ruiz Jr in New York two weeks ago.

"There was three horses in the heavyweight division, and then there were two," Fury added, referring to Joshua's loss.

"Deontay Wilder is coming. It's going to happen."
