Tyson Fury's top five knockouts during unbeaten career from smashing Deontay Wilder to crushing Steve CunninghamOctober 4, 2021
TYSON FURY has promised to deliver another stunning KO win when he fights Deontay Wilder in their trilogy bout this weekend.
In February 2020 the Gypsy King handed Wilder his first ever defeat – and in crushing style.
Fury battered Wilder all over the ring, flooring the American twice before his corner threw in the towel in the seventh round.
It was Fury's 21st stoppage victory in 31 fights – not bad for somebody who has previously had questions asked about his 'power'.
Here SunSport checks out Fury's five best KO wins as he gears up to defend his WBC heavyweight strap in Las Vegas.
Deontay Wilder II – February 2020
Fury felt cheated when the first fight between the pair was scored a draw in December 2018.
So the Gypsy King decided not to leave anything in the hands of the judges with a systematic beatdown of the Bronze Bomber.
Right from the first bell the Gypsy King completely overawed the previously unbeaten champ.
After being floored twice, Wilder's corner ended his punishment in the seventh round and Fury was crowned a two-time heavyweight king.

BETTING SPECIAL: GET 30/1 ON FURY OR 50/1 ON WILDER FOR HEAVYWEIGHT BOXING CLASH
Steve Cunningham – April 2013
A real coming-of-age fight for Fury, after he was floored for the second time in his career by the usual cruiserweight.
That came in the second round, and seemed to spur Fury on as he begged Cunningham to keep coming at him.
A stunning right hook in the seventh round ended the fight.
It led to Fury's famous 'you can't go swimming and not get wet' in reference to trading blows with Cunningham.
And he could be repeating that again after Wilder III this weekend.
Martin Rogan – April 2012
There was a belt on the line in this 2012 scrap – the Irish heavyweight strap.
Fury, at 23, came into the fight 17 years Rogan's junior, and as the rounds wore on the Gypsy King had slowed the Irishman down to a halt.
Rogan had produced the better work in the opening couple of rounds, but by the fifth it was all one way traffic.
After being floored by a vicious body shot in the third, Fury once again went to the bread basked dropping Rogan again before the game veteran's corner pulled him out.
Marcelo Nascimento – February 2011
This was probably the most brutal KO of Fury's career.
It was far from a polished performance before the fifht-round KO , with both boxers lunging wildly much to the crowd's delight inside Wembley Arena.
But the Brazilian flagged in what proved to be his last round of the fight.
Fury mixed up body shots with hooks to the skull, and it was a monstrous right that sent Nascimento faceplanting to the canvas and Fury chalked up another KO win.
Bela Gyongyosi – 2008
Just two minutes into his pro debut in 2009, Fury had left Gyongyosi in a crumpled heap on the canvas.
Again it was a body shot that did the damage – Fury bringing those brutal shots back by destroying Wilder in their second fight.
Gyongyosi had seconds before beckon Fury in – which the Gypsy King gleefully agreed.
