Deontay Wilder has been trolled by boxing fans after a particular picture of him being punched by Tyson Fury went viral.
The Bronze Bomber suffered a first career loss at the hands of the Gypsy King in Las Vegas on Saturday night.
Fury produced the performance of his boxing career to end Wilder's five-year reign as world champion and claim the WBC belt.
The Briton pummelled his rival from start to finish with expert jabbing and power punches that the American had no answer for.

Then a right and left hand combination floored the champion again in the fifth before Wilder’s corner said enough was enough two rounds later.
Fury delivered everything he had promised but what few believed he could in what was a performance of the ages.
One particular punch that shows Wilder’s face and lip wobbling from the brute force of the hit has gone viral on social media.
