Default Favorite Heavyweight one punch KOs

Pretty fascinating, and often a testament to superb punching
power/physical strength. So one punch KOs via right hand, left hook
uppercuts etc or at the most 2 hits as in a jab, right hand, or body
shot uppercut ala Tyson.

There's some great Louis ones don't know the specific opponents, but
he certainly had it, some of them look like they are falling down dead.

Foreman was more accumulation of vicious shots. Cooney was knocked down
and out with a vicious hookercut. Moorer was a one /two combo.

Tyson had some back in the day the one guy who went flying from a hook
I believe, Lorenzo Boyd, a few others, believe he finished Bruno off with a liver shot uppercut combo, then Botha in 2000.

Bowe has some as well, I ll be getting the exact fights when I can.

Wladimir has a bunch earlier in his career, then Brock, Castillo, Chambers.
Just read today Chambers stopped breathing for 20 seconds, Jesus!

So feel free to clarify and add to these fighters, and your personal favorites
as well. I don't know Dempsey's career set that well, Shavers either.
Let the brutal one punch KOs ensue.

The Bomber against Gardner always makes me chuckle (from 2:50):

marciano vs walcott, this one was a real a single 1 punch ko. foreman vs cooney was 1 single shot, the real damage was the upper, cooney was dead on his feet before foreman landed the last blow.

The Marciano/Walcott punch was great but against a really old guy, at the end of his career who was tired, getting sloppy and bounced off the ropes and into the punch. Marciano landed similar punches earlier in the fight but against a fresher Walcott not bouncing off the ropes. Still, great power and timing by Marciano.

Supposedly, the Choynski-Johnson KO was a one punch cold****.

This is one of my favorites.... A truly clean punch...The sound of that left hook hitting Williams' jaw scares me even today....

Walcott was in 2 of them the KO over Charles and the KO'd by in Marciano 1

Vlad KO Chambers 12

many great Heavyweight KO's but one punch KO's are hard, usually takes a few more...Rahman KO Lewis but he softened Lennox with a right moments before then nailed him with the same....the rematch was a beaut but a 2-peice

I've been watching a lot of Walcott recently. He tried that same move against other fighters and got clocked. Still, it worked this time and is an all-time gem.

So how was walcott so tired and sloppy when in fact he dominated the younger "fresher" marciano in rounds 11 and 12, his best rounds of the fight? He almost knocked Marciano out in the 11th.

Yeah, he shot his wad. He was gassed and walked into a punch. The old man gave it a good effort and then folded like a picnic chair. In the return match, he didn't even try and was up and running for his paycheck at the count of ten.

Walcott KO Charles is mine.

One of the things I find most interesting about Marciano knocking out Walcott (and also overlooked by virtually everyone) is that Rocky set up that KO with feinting. If you watch the 10 seconds or so before the ko, Marciano kept feinting that he was going to jab, kept shaking or starting to pump the left or taking steps forward with his left foot like he was going to step in with a jab as Walcott backed to the ropes. When Walcott got back to the ropes he knew he'd have to fight his way off, so he finally went for Rocky's feinting and went to throw his own right over Rocky's left, only to get clocked with the right at the same exact time.

Old Jersey Joe never saw it coming, and Rocky did a rather respectable job of baiting Walcott into it.
