Tyson Fury made a mockery of those who criticised his punching power as he knocked out Deontay Wilder on Saturday night in Las Vegas.
The Gypsy King shocked the world by flooring the Bronze Bomber in rounds three and five before forcing his corner to throw in the towel during the seventh.
Footage (above) has emerged which shows the first knockdown from a ringside angle, in which you can hear the sound of Fury’s power.
At the post-fight presser, the Brit recalled: Dont forget, when I came here they said I cant punch.
Deontay Wilder said himself that Ive got two pillow fists.
But you know, not bad for an old fat guy who cant punch, eh? Done alright, didnt I?
Im an old feather duster who cant break an egg.

The bout started with Fury surprising everybody by living up to his word and taking it to Wilder from the off.
In the third, he smashed home a right to the side of the champions head which sent him scrambling down to the canvas.
He followed this up by flooring him again with a body shot in the round five.
Then, come the seventh, Fury backed Wilder up into a corner, hammered home a straight right and began to unleash combinations, prompting the towel to be thrown in.
Referee Kenny Bayless separated the fighters and Fury was crowned king of the world again.
