Shaquille O'Neal was one of many A-listers ringside for Tyson Fury's trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder, and it appears he was left simply stunned by what he witnessed in Las Vegas.
Fury and Wilder produced plenty of fireworks in a fight that will live long in the memory – with five knockdowns overall as Fury finally got the better of his bitter American rival again in the 11th round.
Both heavyweights hit the canvas in the early hours of Sunday morning, with Wilder being struck down in the third and 10th rounds, while Fury was sent crashing down twice in the fourth.
But Fury still managed to successfully defend his WBC heavyweight title, delivering a crushing blow in the 11th round to consign Wilder to a second consecutive defeat.
And former NBA star O'Neal's reaction to the fight summed up every boxing fan's reaction to the action-packed fight in Sin City.
As Fury looked to land the decisive blow, O'Neal's hilarious reaction was spotted close up on camera as he couldn't believe what he was witnessing. And it's fair to say that it was a 'jaw-dropping' reaction.
O'Neal was part of a crowd that played host to plenty of star-studded names from the celebrity sphere in Las Vegas.
What did you make of the trilogy fight? Let us know in the comments section.
Boxing great Mike Tyson, disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong, and NBA stars Draymond Green and Damian Lillard were many from the sporting sphere in attendance.
Furthermore, actors including Vince Vaughn, Michael B. Jordan and Michael J. Fox were also ringside to witness the trilogy showdown in the early hours of Sunday morning.
And what a fight they witnessed, as Fury produced yet another incredible performance to defend his WBC heavyweight crown in front of an American-dominated crowd.
After his triumph, Fury certainly didn't have any sympathy for his bitter rival.
"As the great John Wayne said, I'm made of pig, iron and steal," Fury said. "It was a great fight and worthy of any great trilogy fight.
"He's got no love for me because I've beaten him three times.
"I’m a sportsman, I went over to him show some love and respect and he didn’t want to show it back. So I pray for him.”
