The Gypsy King is back on top.
Tyson Fury blitzed past Deontay Wilder on Saturday night to win the WBC heavyweight title – and secure his status as one of the greatest in sport right now.
Fury knocked Wilder down twice before the American's corner threw the towel in and ended the contest in the seventh round.
But despite the battering, Wilder could be in line for a third clash with Fury.
As part of the pre-fight agreement, Wilder was given the chance to have a rematch if he lost his belt.

He has a month to activate that clause and Fury expects that he will be clashing with him again in the near future.
Fury said: "I think he will want to take the rematch, so I’m pretty sure we will do it again.
"If not, these are the people (his promoters) who will decide and what ever they want to do against whoever."
But if Wilder says no? Well, of course the all-British clash between Fury and Anthony Joshua could well be on.
Eddie Hearn has already been vocal on social media about his desire for the pair to face off this summer, with every heavyweight title on the line.

He then went on talkSPORT and admitted that he would be doing all he can it to happen.
Hearn said: "What a time for British boxing. To have one world heavyweight champion would be great but to have two with all the belts, we will never see it again.
"I have said and I will make this clear, we have to make this fight happen. We will never get the chance for two Brits to fight for an undisputed heavyweight world championship.
"I will promise you we will do everything we can to make this fight happen.

"The first thing is that Wilder has the rematch clause. I don't think anyone wants to see a third fight, it was that conclusive, but we will see if he wants to exercise that. I probably expect Wilder (to take the rematch). I don't see where else he has to go.
"Our mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev is also promoted by Bob Arum, Tyson Fury's promoter, so there is a very easy manoeuvre there if Wilder doesn't want the rematch to go straight into this undisputed fight in the summer. That's what we have to push for initially."
