Fury is now set to take on WBC heavyweight champ Deontay Wilder in a rematch, assuming Wilder takes care of business against Luis Ortiz.
"I'm here headlining in Vegas, and he's (saying) "I want a rematch with Tyson to try and get that loss out of my mind". This is heavyweight boxing.
The former world champion, who entered the fight as a heavy favorite, controlled the bout with his jab in the first round before ending it with a devastating combination in the second.
You could forgive Fury for thinking he could do anything - including hitting Steven Tyler's high notes - at that moment, as he had spent the previous few minutes imposing his will on an overmatched Schwarz.
Similarly, a bout between Joshua and Tyson Fury, a fellow Englishman and the man considered to be the lineal Heavyweight champion, could still occur though it will never have the same buzz around it as it once could've.
Schwarz returned to his feet but was powerless to evade a flurry of punches and his corner threw in the towel at about the same time the referee stepped in to stop the fight.
That being said, with Ruiz and Joshua now seemingly set on a collision course that will culminate with a rematch, Fury remained open to the prospect of giving the victor a shot at him - although again, he made it clear that Ruiz would have no hope of winning.
Paris Fury was pictured arm-in-arm with the ring girl stunners at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Because of that, "The Gypsy King" can not afford to take his next fight lightly because as it turns out, he's actually in a similar position to the one Joshua was in prior to his bout with Ruiz.
Fury settled on Schwarz for his next showcase in promoter Bob Arum's quest to turn him into a household name in the US. He won this in 2015 after defeating Wladimir Klitschko in Germany.
Wilder and Fury fought to a draw in Los Angeles in December after an epic 12-round battle at the Staples Center.
Tonight, it will be a heavyweight showdown as Tyson Fury (27-0-1, 19 KOs) steps into the ring against Tom Schwarz (24-0, 16 KOs). "In what world could he ever beat me?"
Speaking post-fight, Fury gave praise to the Mexican heavyweight for his soon-to-be-legendary victory over the heavily-favoured Anthony Joshua earlier this month.
The Gypsy King needs to show up on Saturday night and put on a show. "Tyson Fury is a force of nature".
