AMERICAN heavyweight Michael Hunter delivered a brutal, blood-spattered KO of Mike Wilson days after calling out Dillian Whyte.
Hunter smashed in a huge right hand that flattened his totally mismatched opponent on a Triller card in New York.
Although Wilson staggered back to his feet with blood dripping out of his mouth and nose, referee Ricky Gonzalez rightly waved it off in the fourth.
Wilson's face was badly busted up, and Hunter seemingly knew it was all over as soon as he landed by throwing his hands into the air.
Before his battering of Wilson, Hunter had begged for a big-name fight – with Brit Whyte in his sights.
Speaking to Sky Sports about whether he would fancy the scrap, he said: "Absolutely. I don't know if it will happen.
"He's one of the guys who has the excuse: 'Who is Michael Hunter?'.
"They act like they don't know who I am.
"I was fighting before they'd ever put on a pair of gloves.
Hunter has only tasted defeat once in 22 fights, and that was at cruiserweight against world title challenger Oleksandr Usyk.

The Ukrainian of course fights Anthony Joshua on September 25 for the WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight titles.
Hunter drew with Russian veteran Alexander Povetkin in December 2019 – though many felt he should have won it with the judges.
Whyte, meanwhile,has been on the sidelines since winning his do-or-die rematch with the recently-retired Povetkin in March.
The Brixton Body Snatcher has been champing at the bit to get back in the ring, so much so he offered to replace Tyson Fury and fight Deontay Wilder this weekend.
But promoter Eddie Hearn has revealed the 33-year-old is on course to fight in September and could land a spot on the eagerly-anticipated Canelo vs Plant card.
