When the question of the highest knockout percentages among champions in boxing comes up, one name always stands well apart from the others. That would be El Inca, Edwin Valero of Venezuela, with three perfect cubes of three, 27 fights, 27 wins, and 27 KOs, not to mention the zer0 factor of no losses, all accomplished by age 28.
