Now, ESPN Deportes claims Fury's next opponent will be revealed when Kubrat Pulev and Bogdan Dinu clash this weekend.

Schwarz, 24, stands at 6ft 5ins and has won 16 of his 24 bouts inside the distance.

But he has not fought at world level and a fighter of Fury's calibre would be a huge step up.

Fury is fresh off the back of a five-fight £80million ESPN deal and was expected to take a re-match with WBC champ Deontay Wilder after a controversial draw.

Instead Dominic Breazeale will get a shot at the strap on May 18, with the Gypsy King looking at alternatives.

Asked about his plans for the year, Fury told MTK Global: “Vegas next baby.

"We want Vegas next to give the fans something to travel to for an event this summer. That’s what we want and what we’re gearing up to.
