Deontay Wilder defeated Luis Ortiz on Saturday night in epic fashion.

Wilder landed a punch in the seventh round that end the fight on the spot for his heavyweight title. Of all the punches we’ve seen get thrown in boxing matches lately, this one from Wilder might be the best. (SLIDESHOW: These UFC Women Really Hate Wearing Clothes)

Ortiz was done the moment the boxing star connected. Watch a couple different angles of the punch below. (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Greatest Ronda Rousey Photos On The Internet)

My friends, that’s about as good as it gets when it comes to knockout punches. Wilder just ended the fight right on the spot with one punch. (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Sexiest Paige VanZant Photos On The Internet)

Imagine the kind of power you have to have in order to throw a shot like that and just flip the lights off for somebody.

It’s a great example of what kind of strength Wilder has in the boxing game.

Props to Wilder for winning the fight in a fashion that won’t be forgotten anytime soon. There’s lots of great punches throughout the history of boxing, but there aren’t many that can match that one.
