Fury faces unbeaten German Schwarz on Saturday night in Las Vegas in his first fight since drawing to WBC heavyweight world champion Deontay Wilder in December.

The Englishman is a heavy favourite to do the business at MGM Grand Hotel, his debut under the Las Vegas lights.

The Gyspy King has previously spoken about how he sees this as the fourth fight of his career following drug, alcohol and mental issues which led to a 34-month hiatus from the ring.

Since returning last summer, footage of Fury’s dressing room before fights has revealed his unique preparation before the ring walk, which doesn’t usually disappoint.

Tyson Fury ring walk music: What song will Fury walk out to vs Tom Schwarz?

Fury does not have a go-to song when it comes to ring walks, sometimes switching between tunes on his pilgrimage to the apron.

Against Wilder, GALA’s Freed From Desire, which has become a notorious party song, blasted out the tannoys.

Previously, Afroman’s Because I Got High and T.I. and Rihanna’s Live Your Life have also been Fury’s soundtracks.

The 30-year-old was coy when asked by BT Sport about his plans for Saturday.

“Is the entrance going to be part of the show?” the outlet asked. “Because, since you’ve come back, the ring walks have been unbelievable.”

“They’ve been epic,” Fury replied. “We’ve got something up our sleeve. We’ll just say that.”

Trainer Ben Davison, who will be part of the large entourage accompanying Fury to the ring added: “Leave it at that.”

There is a suspicion that Don McLean’s American Pie may be Fury’s fight song.

The idiosyncratic heavyweight belted out the first verse and chorus in his post-fight press conference after the Wilder encounter, with Davison and, reluctantly, promoter Frank Warren joining in.

It is not particularly an exhilarating number but neither was Randy Travis’ I’m Gonna Have A Little Talk With Jesus, which accompanied Fury to the ring before his dethroning of unified world champion Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015.
