A video has surfaced from Saturday night's heavyweight classic between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder, which shows the devastating impact of the American's power punches.
Fury was victorious in what was an 11 round war for the WBA heavyweight world championship belt, finally getting the better of his 35-year-old opponent with a clean right hand.
However, only a few rounds before the knockout blow, The Gyspy King was having to drag himself off the canvas, having been caught several times.
Wilder is known as one of the hardest-hitting punchers of all time, coming into the trilogy fight with a record of 41 knockouts from his 42 career wins.
The fighter's concussive power was on display once more against Fury, as is evidenced by the video below.

As the clip shows, Wilder's power's makes the skin of Fury's torso ripple. With this in mind, it's hardly surprising that the former Olympic Bronze medalist was able to put his rival down - even if he did ultimately go on to lose the bout.
Fury showed remarkable powers of recovery to get back to his feet on two separate occasions, with no other of Wilder's previous opponents - bar Bermane Steverne - able to deal with such brutal punches.
Over on Reddit, several users responded to the slow-motion video expressing their amusement at Fury's ability to eat sich shots, and somehow keep fighting.
"I think that would have killed me," one user commented, while another added "That shot separates most humans' brain stems I feel. Fury is just 6'9 and a monster."
Before his first fight with Wilder, back in 2019, the Brit was known more for his slick defence, which meant that he seldom got hit.
However, up against the man from Tuscaloosa, Alabama, Fury has been willing to take one in order to land one back - earning the fighter props for his uncanny ability to absorb a series of brutal blows.
"Seeing Fury just jumping in there without throwing a feint, moving laterally and keeping his head in exactly the same place is wild," One Redditor observed.
The 31-year-old is likely to face a fellow British fighter next in the form of Dillian Whyte - who is his WBA mandatory.
