TYSON FURY has revealed he IGNORED his coach Ben Davison during his hammering of Tom Schwarz.
The Gypsy King stopped the previously undefeated German in the second round of their fight in Las Vegas.
Davison has been heralded for the work he has done with Fury, getting the heavyweight back to elite level boxing.
But the man himself admitted his desire for a knockout in America meant he did his own thing in the ring at Madison Square Garden.
Speaking to iFL TV, the former world champ said: “Do you want to know the truth from that boxing match? I didn’t do a thing Ben told me to do.
“Ben wanted me to go out and box for six or seven rounds and let him tire. I didn’t, I didn’t want to. I wanted a knockout in America.
“If I’ve ever gone out to look for a knockout in my mind, I’ve never not got one.
“But for some reason I wanted to knock Schwarz out and make a statement in America, and put on a show because that’s what they like.
“The American love a knockout. They don’t care how when or why but they love a knockout.
“Everyone was telling me they love a knockout, and there’s me thinking ‘I don’t have that knockout style’.
FURY’S OWN MATRIX
“So I said I am going to get him out of there quick. I said it’s going to be either him or me because this is America and everyone wants to see an explosive performance.
“I got a good victory and my plan worked. Job done in and out.”
It was a dazzling performance from Fury who looks set to get the rematch against Deontay Wilder next year.
The two fought a contentious draw in December, with most believing Fury had done enough to win the WBC strap.
And if he uses similar speed and sublime head and body movement he showed against Schwarz, he could well be the favourite to get revenge.
Fury showed Matrix-like moves as he dodged a vicious seven-punch combo thrown by the German in the second round.

He said: “I was studying Neo for a while before the fight, and thought I might go in there and show a few moves.
