Default Re: Shouldn't KO% come from dividing KO's over wins?

For example Joe Louis KO% is listed as 75% but the true number of wins he has via KO is 78%

It has to be adjusted for everyone.
So I could fight 100 guys and only win 1 fight by KO and I would have a 100% KO rate against my opponents? Sweet!
