Honorable Mention who I would include if this was a top 20 list. Rocky Marciano, Evander Holyfield, Sonny Liston, Mike Tyson, George Foreman, Nikolai Valuev, Zelko Mavrovic, Joe Jeannette, Marion Wilson and Gene Tunney.

Doesn't this criteria disqualify Foreman? He definitely didn't stay strong throughout a contest and was floored several times in the first phase of his career.
