 SB 10.44.31
hatesu malla-varyesu
 vidrutesu ca bhoja-rat
nyavarayat sva-turyani
 vakyam cedam uvaca ha

Translation:
The Bhoja king, seeing that his best wrestlers had all been killed or had fled, stopped the musical performance originally meant for his pleasure and spoke the following words.

 
SB 10.44.32
nihsarayata durvrttau
 vasudevatmajau purat
dhanam harata gopanam
 nandam badhnita durmatim

Translation:
[Kamsa said:] Drive the two wicked sons of Vasudeva out of the city! Confiscate the cowherds’ property and arrest that fool Nanda!


SB 10.44.33
vasudevas tu durmedha
 hanyatam asv asattamah
ugrasenah pita capi
 sanugah para-paksa-gah

Translation:
Kill that most evil fool Vasudeva! And also kill my father, Ugrasena, along with his followers, who have all sided with our enemies!


SB 10.44.34
evam vikatthamane vai
 kamse prakupito ’vyayah
laghimnotpatya tarasa
 mañcam uttungam aruhat

Translation:
As Kamsa thus raved so audaciously, the infallible Lord Krsna, intensely angry, quickly and easily jumped up onto the high royal dais.


SB 10.44.35
tam avisantam alokya
 mrtyum atmana asanat
manasvi sahasotthaya
 jagrhe so ’si-carmani

Translation:
Seeing Lord Krsna approaching like death personified, the quick-witted Kamsa instantly rose from his seat and took up his sword and shield.


SB 10.44.36
tam khadga-panim vicarantam asu
 syenam yatha daksina-savyam ambare
samagrahid durvisahogra-teja
 yathoragam tarksya-sutah prasahya

Translation:
Sword in hand, Kamsa moved quickly from side to side like a hawk in the sky. But Lord Krsna, whose fearsome strength is irresistible, powerfully seized the demon just as the son of Tarksya might capture a snake.

SB 10.44.37
pragrhya kesesu calat-kiritam
 nipatya rangopari tunga-mañcat
tasyoparistat svayam abja-nabhah
 papata visvasraya atma-tantrah

Translation:
Grabbing Kamsa by the hair and knocking off his crown, the lotus-naveled Lord threw him off the elevated dais onto the wrestling mat. Then the independent Lord, the support of the entire universe, threw Himself upon the King.

Purport:
In Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Srila Prabhupada describes the death of Kamsa as follows: “Krsna at once straddled his chest and began to strike him over and over again. Simply from the strokes of His fist, Kamsa lost his vital force.”
