TYSON FURY knocked out Dillian Whyte with a deadly uppercut but he once punched himself in the face with the same shot.

In 2009 a youthful-looking Gypsy King took on Lee Swaby in his fourth professional fight, and not everything went according to plan.

Fury secured victory in the fourth round after Swaby's corner threw in the towel.

And such was his dominance Fury even helped Swaby out by hitting himself in the face with an uppercut.

Fury attempted to break Swaby's guard but missed, and the momentum led him to catch his own forehead.

After the bout Fury joked it was the best shot he had ever been hit with at that point in his career.

The heavyweight world champion has come a long way since and landed a perfect uppercut to floor Whyte.

The single shot knocked the Bodysnatcher onto his back and although he tried to get back up, the referee called a halt to the contest after he stumbled onto the ropes.

Fury acknowledged it was one of the best punches of his career and said in the ring afterwards: "I think Lennox Lewis would be proud of that right uppercut!”

Fury also paid tribute to Sugar Hill Steward, claiming he is the best trainer in the world after he helped him win via knockout again.
