    Hopefully I met all the criteria with my list above. If anyone notices any mistakes or changes that need to be made please let me know.

    Looking back at my list it’s crazy to see how some of my favourite puncher don’t get a look in but I guess for all there quantity there just isn’t one specific knock out to list. I’ve thought long enough about it before posting that I’m sure I’ve narrowed it down as much as I can.

    Really happy to be able to participate in this. Thanks a lot Rummy.

    Happy for you to log my data, don’t plan on any more edits. I can’t possibly go down the KO rabbit hole again or I might change the entire list. Can’t wait for the video!

    @Rumsfeld - I’ll confirm before the deadline. I may give it one more once-over but generally pretty happy with the KOs and order.

    EDIT: Still messing around with the order of the top 10.
