Mike Tyson may be the most terrifying heavyweight boxer that the sport has ever seen and Muhammad Ali may have been the most talented and graceful, but no man has boasted the punching power that Wilder has displayed during his rise to the top of the division.

The title ‘the world’s baddest man’ is used to describe the man who sits atop the heavyweight division and although Wilder does not hold all of the belts, it is hard to dispute the suggest that he is the baddest man in the sport right now – just like Ivan Drago’s promoter boasted in Rocky IV, ‘whatever he hits, he destroys’.

In his 10 defences of the WBC heavyweight title Wilder has stopped nine opponents inside the distance – can you name them all?
