Tyson Fury has offered fans, and Deontay Wilder, a permanent reminder of the stunning knockdown which settled their classic trilogy bout in the early hours of Sunday morning.
'The Gypsy King' had already floored his bitter rival twice when in the 11th round, he finally ended the resistance of 'The Bronze Bomber' with a devastating right hand.
Referee Russell Mora didn't even begin the count against Wilder, instead ending the contest immediately with the American sprawled on the canvas.
And now Fury is flogging signed pictures of the bout on his official website, including the defining blow. The photo, priced at £99.99, shows the British fighter standing over the American as he tumbles face first towards the deck.
For the same price, fans can buy an image of Fury, 33, holding both his WBC heavyweight and Ring Magazine titles, and a series of shots from the bout itself are available at £79.99.
It's the final knockdown of Wilder however, which is likely to attract most attention, and after the American's refusal to show his respect to his bitter rival after the fight, the photograph serves as a ruthless reminder to the 35-year-old how the trilogy ended.
Fury's next opponent is likely to be mandatory WBC challenger Dillian Whyte, providing he can overcome Otto Wallin on October 30.
However, in an interview with The Telegraph this week, the Manchester fighter refused to be drawn on his long-term future.
"I don’t know what’s going to happen," he said.
What do you make of Fury flogging signed pictures of his Wilder KO? Let us know in the comments section.
"I’ve got one fight left on my contract with Top Rank and ESPN and we’ll see what that is.
“But I’m not thinking about boxing right now. I don’t know how many fights I’ve got left, I don’t know if I need to fight anymore. I don’t know what the future holds.
“I am motivated to get up in the morning, do a little bit of training and enjoy my day. I don’t have any goals in boxing; I have done everything and won everything, the only one to do it in my era.
“I will always have been the WBC, WBA, WBO, IBF, Ring magazine champion, that will not evaporate in history, but once it is done, it is done – and you cannot get it back.
“Once you are done, it doesn’t matter how many belts you have, who you beat, what your record is. You are just another bare bum in the shower.”
