Default Best KO artists

Discuss who you think are the best knockout artists in the sport's history. I'm mainly basing my list on one-punch and finishing ability.

1. Julian Jackson
2 Joe Louis
3. Rocky Marciano
4. Archie Moore
5. Mike Tyson
6. George Foreman
7. Tommy Hearns
8. Sam Langford
9. Sonny Liston
10. Sandy Saddler

I know he's thought of as more of a boxer puncher, but should Sugar Ray not be on any list?

Zarate is often forgotten when lists like this are compiled. But have a look at his first 40 or so fights in particular. Only about one opponent went the distance. He was a one man demolition squad.
