TYSON Fury will be aiming to take a step towards a Deontay Wilder rematch when he enters a ring in Las Vegas for the first time on Sunday.

The 30-year-old former Styal Primary School pupil faces Germany's Tom Schwarz at the iconic MGM Grand around 4am UK time - his first bout since teaming up with US broadcaster ESPN.

Schwarz, who is ranked No2 by the WBO, is relatively unknown but is undefeated in 24 fights, 16 of which ended with a knockout.

For the Gypsy King, who is on Frank Warren's books, Schwarz presents a hurdle to a new date with Wilder after their controversial draw last year.

WBC heavyweight world champion Wilder says he has signed an agreement to face Fury in a rematch after his September fight against Cuban Luis Ortiz.

Fight fans will be able to gain an insight into Furey's life and career in a Channel 5 programme on Saturday, 9pm.

'Tyson Fury: Rise & Fall of the Gypsy King' takes a close look at one of British sport's most controversial figures.

The 6ft 9ins fighter became a force to be reckoned with four years ago when he defeated long reigning champion Wladimir Klitschko.

However, Fury's outspoken views on women, abortion and gay culture caused outrage.

Though he looked like a broken man by the end of 2017, his fight against Wilder a year later proved he was far from over.

In the programme he talks about his struggle with mental health and his extraordinary career.

His younger brother Tommy, who is also a boxer, is currently appearing in ITV2 show Love Island.
