He promised to deliver a knockout and as one of boxing's most powerful hitters, he made good on that promise.
Fury took the title in the 7th round after a flurry of punches which pinned Wilder in the corner. The barrage was so intense Wilder's assistant trainer threw in the towel in defiance of head trainer Jay Deas according to the guardian.com.
Fans around the world delighted at the victory and took to social media to celebrate the athlete.
