Tyson Fury’s famous trilogy of fights with Deontay Wilder saw him knocked down four times in total, only to get up and keep fighting again and again.
Many were stunned, especially in the final round of the first fight, by the Gypsy King’s ability to get up and go, but it wasn’t the first time he had hit the canvas.
Few are aware of Fury’s American debut against Steve Cunningham in 2013, when the American floored the Briton.
But few people know about his Commonwealth title fight in 2011 at age 23, when he faced Neven Pajkic.
In just his 17th pro contest, Fury faced the undefeated Canadian who was also 16-0 before the first bell.
The first round saw the smaller man pose some problems for the local favorite, but it was in the second round that the action really started.
Pajkic threw an overhand right that the inexperienced Fury just didn’t see coming.
This sent him crashing backwards onto the canvas, falling onto his back.
Fury looked shocked more than anything and, luckily for him, wasn’t seriously hurt.
He got to his feet and fought to the bell.
Then, in the very next round, Fury returned the favor by isolating Pajkic twice and forcing the referee to step in and stop the contest.
Fury said after the fight, “I scared myself there for a second.
“As I’ve always said, heavyweights are heavyweights. He got me with a good punch, a punch to the chin.
“I went down, I got up, I stopped him.
“I would say it shows a real champion to get knocked down like that and get back up.”
