This can be pretty tricky and subjective, according to how you define a "real banger" Boucher. I'll toss out some names for you, and you can add or eliminate according to your personal criteria of who constitutes a puncher.

Ali-Liston, Big Cat, Frazier 3X, Foreman, Lyle, Shavers, Bonavena, Chuvalo 2X, Mac Foster, Bob Foster (if you accept him as a legitimate heavyweight puncher-I don't), Moore (who did flatten big Embrell Davidson for the count with a single right in a match televised from Detroit), maybe Sonny Banks and Henry Cooper 2X. Do Patterson and JQ qualify according to your standards?

Holmes-Shavers 2X, Hercules 2X, Bonecrusher 2X, Michael Spinks 2X (again, with a same caveat as Bob Foster for Ali), Tyson, Cooney, McCall, Holyfield, Mercer, Beanfart, Witherspoon.

Lennox-Rahman 2X, McCall 2X, Holyfield 2X, Morrison, Ruddock, Tua, Tucker, Mercer, Briggs, Golota, Weaver, Vitali.

Tyson-Bonecrusher, Tucker, Bruno 2X, Lennox, Michael Spinks (again, if you accept him as a puncher), Seldon, Etienne, Holyfield 2X, Ruddock 2X, Stewart, Douglas, Thomas, Golota.

Louis-Max Baer, Buddy Baer 2X, Charley Retzlaff, Galento, Nova, Schmeling 2X, Mauriello, Walcott 2X, Charles, Savold, Marciano, maybe Simon 2X.

Uzcudun, Harris, Tiger Jack Fox, Elmer Ray, Valdes, Sheppard and a couple others could punch well also.

I included names which others might have excluded, and vice versa. Beyond that, I'd want Boucher to be more specific on defining who constitutes the kind of puncher being sought. For Ali, would guys like JQ, Patterson, Norton and Chuvalo qualify?

Jersey Joe Walcott might be a wildcard here, ditto Jack Sharkey.

ezzard charles fought a lot of bangers too. Louis, walcott, moore, marciano, satterfeild, elmer ray, valdes, rex layne, baksi, huricane jackson, dick richardson (who flattened mildenburger in a round) and thats not mentioning other fearful punchers like harold johnson, fritzie fitzpatrick, jimmy bivins and lloyd marshal who were just outside the poundage.
