Default What good or great heavyweights were KO'ed by body shots?

Sorry if this has been done before but I started thinking the other day how rare it was to see a Heavyweight KO'ed by body shots. I came up with a few names but I really didn't get far. I was going to post this is the general forum but it's clear I'll get more and better answers in here. I thought pretty hard about this and it's tougher than you may think.

Good question!.. You're right, i don't think there are too many..

The one that comes to mind immediately is the shot in the 'slats' delivered by Bob Fitzsimmons to Jim Corbett..
Although way past his prime, Joe Bugner was KO'd by a body shot in which i believe was his penultimate fight vs Scott Welch, the punch breaking two of his ribs..
