Tyson Fury brutally knocked out Deontay Wilder to retain his heavyweight world title after a thrilling back-and-forth trilogy fight.
Both men hit the canvas with Wilder down in the third and 10th rounds and Fury down twice in the fourth.
But it was the champion who recovered best from the setbacks to stop his opponent in the penultimate session and ensure a concussive end to this long-running feud.
“As the great John Wayne said, I’m made of pig, iron and steal,” Fury said. “It was a great fight and worthy of any great trilogy fight.
“He’s got no love for me because I’ve beaten him three times.
“I’m a sportsman, I went over to him show some love and respect and he didn’t want to show it back. So I pray for him.”
Fury was meeting Wilder for the third time in three years following a controversial draw and a concussive stoppage.
