Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder once again delivered in a massive way. The pair of heavyweights collided for a third time in Las Vegas on Saturday night with the two giving us arguably the best fight of the trilogy. Both men were dropped early before Fury ultimately scored the seminal blow in Round 11 to stop Wilder and retain the WBC crown.
Fury appeared to be on his way to a quick win after scoring a big knockdown in the third round of the contest. Wilder looked rattled mentally after being blitzed by Fury, only to storm back in Round 4 to score a pair of knockdowns.
After those three knockdowns, the fight turned into round after round of momentum swings, with Fury doing the more consistently effective work but Wilder's always-dangerous right hand rattling the champion and keeping him very much in the fight.
Another Fury right hand scored a knockdown in Round 10, only to see Wilder land bombs to end the frame. There would be no coming back for Wilder in Round 11, with Fury landing a bomb of a right hand that sent the challenger crashing to the canvas and requiring no count from the referee.
While the flurry of knockdowns were a sight to behold in action, sometimes a picture can truly drive home the brutality of a battle. With that, let us take a look at some of the shots of the big knockdowns from the contest.
