"knockout power"

I know this is considered a mystery by many but I hope I can get some answers that will at least help me to understand or gain some perspective. Physiologically all professional boxers/MMA fighters should have the necessary force/power to inflict a (KO) as many sources I have read state that this phenomenon does not require that much power to begin with; rather accuracy and speed (factoring in other apsects such as the chin of the opponent). So I guess my question is how come some fighters are considered to NOT have KO power (also without considering those who are intentionally defensive like Mayweather who doesnt look for the KO or Khabib who just uses punches to set up take downs). And shouldnt all fighters be theoretically able to deliver a knock out considering their level of training and strength? Is the differences in knockout percentage more related to precision than the actual power of the fighter? Or is it that stronger punchers can inflict KOs without as much precision because of their power? Which brings me back to my question on the argument that there is not an extraordinary amount of force needed for the knockout?

In my experience strength has nothing to do with it. A heavyweight with no KO power will easily KO a small man. So when we talk KO power we are talking same size.

I used to box a little bit when I was younger and my trainer said KO power is a god given gift. Thats not say you can't train it by becoming stronger, for example if your a skinny guy who almost has KO power, you can probably upgrade yourself slightly by improving your technique and strength.

Some people say its just the way your body is built and the way you are able to throw punches. I'm not sure but the fact is that some people have it and some people don't. Essentially it is untrainable, otherwise boxers with no KO power would be training to KO people, but that never happens
