Even if there were (speculative) what the hell would it matter? Having knockout power is useless if you can't knock someone out........ There are a whole lot of people (fighters and non fighters) of all different shapes, sizes and athletic ability that could generate the power to knock someone out, it really don't take that much.
There are a lot more fighters that hit hard, than there are fighters that KO opponents consistently. A fighters knockout power alone is irrelevant, it's his ability to knock someone out that is relevant. Hence, the only way to accurately
measure a fighters ability to produce KO's ain't a complex scientific analysis.
Fighter with 100% KO POWER = jack shit
Fighter with 100% KO RATIO = The one who can knock ya the fuck out!
