Tyson Fury's fight ending punch of Deontay Wilder has been caught from a new angle, and it shows how brutal the clubbing shot was.
Fury and Wilder fought out 10 and a half rounds of brilliant boxing that swung one way and then another, and defied logic at times.
It looked like Fury would win easily, when he knocked down his opponent in the third round, before the Bronze Bomber twice floored the Gypsy King in the following round.
Wilder had to hold on in the second half of the fight, especially after being knocked down in the 10th, not that one judge noticed, before the finale in the 11th.
With his opponent having lost his legs and leaning up against the ropes, Fury landed a brilliant overhand right to the side of the American's head and Wilder landed face down on the mat.

It was the Bronze Bomber who'd secured two knockdowns in their first fight in 2018, which were the only reason he scored a controversial draw.
In the second meeting it was the Gypsy King who twice sent his opponent to the canvas, with two more occasions ruled as slips.
The ending of that meeting didn't come as cleanly as Saturday night, with coach Mark Breland throwing in the towel with Wilder still on his feet, and later be accused of plotting against his fighter.
Whilst the American refused to count that as a knockout, he did claim his second knockdown of Wilder in the first fight was one his top three.
Fury went ahead on the knockdowns count in the third round on Saturday in Las Vegas, after Wilder had won the first two rounds on two of the judges scorecards.
The former champion was saved by the bell at the end of the round and then came out firing in the fourth, to nearly win it himself.
Wilder caused two knockdowns of his own to win the round 10-7 and Fury himself was saved by the bell at the end of three minutes this time.
A further knockdown in the 10th all but secured the victory for the British heavyweight but he wanted to make sure no judges had the chance to stop him retaining his title.
He made sure of that in the 11th with his brilliant knockout blow, which ended their trilogy in a way that not even Wilder can argue, surely...
