A Polish bare-knuckle boxer nicknamed “Tyson” lived up to his reputation with a sickening knockout blow.
Krystian Kuzma booked his place in the Gromba heavyweight final as he floored Lukasz ‘Brodacz’ Zaluska in extraordinary fashion.
The knockout was so brutal, his opponent had to be taken out of the ring on a stretcher.
In the event specifically designed for brutal knockouts — there is no time limit in the fifth and final round — Kuzma ensured viewers were not disappointed.
He went straight on to the attack after the first bell, taking the fight to Zaluska and with less than 30 seconds on the clock, Kuzma closed in on a stunning victory.
A huge right hand put ‘Brodacz’ on the back foot and left him stumbling.
Kuzma followed it up with a brutal right hand uppercut, sending his poleaxed opponent crashing to the canvas face first and unable to break his fall.

Zaluska remained on the deck for several minutes receiving medical attention as Kuzma celebrated booking his place in the final later on Saturday night.
And once again he stormed to victory to claim the title with another first-round stoppage in the savage fighting sport.
TYSON NOT TEMPTED
Kuzma’s idol Iron Mike was offered the chance to take up bare-knuckle boxing as he plots a stunning comeback to the ring.
As videos emerged of the 53-year-old American getting back into shape and working on the pads, BKBFC chief David Feldman made a tempting proposal with $AUD29 million on the table.
“Look, Mike Tyson, at his age, I don’t think he can do ten three-minute rounds, this is five two-minute rounds,” Feldman said.
“It’s a little different than what he’s use to, but it’s a shorter time frame and I think it’s something that would really fit his fighting style and his age group right now.”
Tyson, though, may prefer to return to what he is used to and step back inside the ring for a regular boxing fight — all in the name of charity.
A trilogy bout with Evander Holyfield is on the cards.
No fight has yet been agreed between the pair, who met twice in the 1990s, but Tyson is keen to get an exhibition arranged.
“That would be awesome for charity. Can you imagine me and him going in the ring together?” he told TMZ Sport.
“I’m in good shape, I feel really good. Anything is possible. I’m having fun, looking good, showing off my new body and stuff.
“Hey listen, there are a lot of people out there that need help and something like that could help a lot of people that’s in need for help.”
