It was Khasio Galaxy. But the reason Foreman knocked out more top guys was because he was the better fighter, but most think Shavers was the harder puncher.

But anyway, my top 10 are:

1. Julian Jackson
2. Earnie Shavers
3. Thomas Hearns
4. Bob Foster
5. Max Baer
6. George Foreman
7. Rocky Marciano
8. Joe Louis
9. Wilfredo Gomez
10. Mike Tyson

He was Thai. Easily one of the best bodypunchers ever.

the following was taken from Wikipedia:

Due to his lack of amateur boxing experiences that were the backbone to western professional boxers, Galaxy boxing skills was limited and he relied on toughness and his fearsome punching power to carry him to victory. His southpaw style was based on getting in range close to his opponent and fire his left hand. His right hand was used to measure his opponent to gauge the range to fire his left hand. His left hand is responsible for all his knockouts and is arguably the hardest single punch amongst the lower weight fighters in history. As he got more experience, however, he began to develop into a more refined puncher obtaining other skills such as combination punching to compliment his deadly left. His favourite punch, a straight left to the mid section, in Thai roughly translates to "the left hand that drills intestines". Incredibly strong he was never outmuscled and opponents who try to employ the traditional stick and move found that he had quick feet and was able to cut off the ring very fast.
