TMZ Sports has released the graphic video of the elevator assault that cost Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice a two-game suspension.

The new images clearly show Rice throwing the punch that knocked out his fiancee — and now wife — Janay Palmer, at a New Jersey casino in February.

He threw the first punch, she hit back and then he knocked her out.

The new pictures are likely to bring calls for a tougher penalty against Rice.

The NFL has already increased its minimum suspension for domestic abuse, to six games.

“We requested from law enforcement any and all information about the incident, including the video from inside the elevator,” NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said in a statement. “That video was not made available to us and no one in our office has seen it until today.”
