Fury dropped Wilder in the third but then suffered two sickening knockdowns himself in the fifth.

In the tenth Fury hit back as he sent Wilder down to the canvas again.

And the unbeaten Gypsy King ended it violently in the penultimate round – with uppercuts and right hand leaving no need for a count.

The final devastating blow caught Wilder on the left side of his head.

As he fell he tried to hold on to the ropes but his legs had gone and he collapsed to the ground.

Boxing fans hailed the devastating punch.

On Twitter @purbrooktony  wrote “Best knockout ever. Congratulations champ. #TysonFuryVsDeontayWilder #TysonWilder3″

David Haye said on BT Sport: “Wilder earned his money tonight, he surely did.

“He gave it everything he had. No one can say that his corner threw the towel in like he complained about in the second fight.

“I think he wanted to get knocked out like that. So he knows.”

After the fight, Fury said: “Wilder is a tough guy with a big heart to keep going, I think a doctor got in the ring and checked him.

“He took a lot of punishment and that puts miles on the clock – but so did I.”

Wilder said: “I did my best, but it wasn’t good enough tonight,’ he said. ‘I’m not sure what happened.

“I know that in training he did certain things, and I also knew that he didn’t come in at 277 pounds to be a ballet dancer.

“He came to lean on me, try to rough me up and he succeeded.”

Former WBC champion Wilder was bleeding from his ear at the end and was taken to a Las Vegas hospital for precautionary checks.
