In what was an all-time classic heavyweight bout, Tyson Fury defeated Deontay Wilder thanks to an 11th Round knockout last night in Vegas.
The British fighter's final punch, from which his opponent simply couldn't recover, was certainly one for the highlight reel.
The fight itself was an epic back and forth content, as both men would be put on the canvas with the first six rounds.
Wilder had far more success this time around than in the pair's previous meeting, although the end result still remained the same.
A dramatic third-round saw both men go down, with the American showing excellent powers of recovery to stay in the fight.
The 36-year-old was then hanging on in the seventh, under fire from a barrage of punches by Fury.
However, heading into the 11th, it was still anyone's fight - that was until the defending WBA World Champion sent his rival sprawling once again. This time, there was no way back for Wilder.

All those jabs in the rounds leading up to the KO made a huge difference, an accumulation of punches turns the big one into the final one.

After all, this certainly wasn't the first time he has had to dig deep and recover from Wilder's fearsome right hand.
The first meeting between the two giants ended in a majority draw, one in which Fury somehow managed to get up after being on the wrong end of a straight right from the Bronze Bomber.
And yet, as the man himself attests to, write him off at your peril.
