If we're talking about punchers who can, with one punch, end the fight and your consciousness:

Lopez
Rosario
Arguello
Marciano

Barrett was one of the bigger wastes of talent in recent British boxing...a really natural knockout artist that could throw world class punches.He had more ability than Hatton at 140, but not the work ethic and didn't develop as he should have as an all-round fighter.

Calamati was a skillful fighter too, looked to be developing into a nice stylist in his past handful of Euro title defences and if i remember rightly was close to getting a fight with Chavez when he was ambushed by Barret.Obviously wasn't expecting that sort of power and never recovered from it.he looked like shit against Padilla a few years later.

Not a sharp puncher but Danny Lopez seemed to knock people sensless with even grazing and seemingly unloaded blows much like Jackson.

Shavers has as far as I know has only 1 single punch KO on film.
He had good power, but no sharpness that puts out lights for 5 minutes.

Foreman is not what I meant in the thread title.
He had BRUTE strenght.

But it was a pushing kind of strenght that threw you off balance, he was anything but sharp, and it isn't the oneshot power I meant.

Jones Jnr at 160 scored some damn impressive KO's at 160.

He levelled generally sturdy guys like Thomas Tate and Sugarboy Malingo with single left hooks and destroyed some lesser fighters (Percy Harris, Jorge Vaca and Art Serwano) with frightening exhibitions of speed and power.

At heavyweight, Greg Page KO'd the very durable James Tillis with one sneaky right hand and also KO'd Derrick Jefferson with one punch IIRC at an advanced age.

Lennox Lewis KO'd Michael Simuwelu, Mike Weaver, Michael Grant and Mike Tyson all with one punch. Maybe he just hated people with the name "Michael/Mike". The left-hook in the Rahman KO was also fairly inconsequential; it was the right hand that did all the work. At heavyweight, I struggle to think of anyone with more proven one punch KO power.
