Could a human knock an ape out?

In a square go could a big punching heavyweight like Anthony Joshua, George Foreman or Mike Tyson put a gorilla out cold? I think possible but difficult. Tyson Fury has the speed and agility to maybe fend of an agitated gorilla for a bit but not the punching power imo. Need a one punch man to end it quickly. If at all.

The average man in the street would probably have his face and testicles ripped off before he knew he was in a fight. Even coming down to the level of a chimp vs the average man.

Orangutans seem placid but reckon they'd be tough if it kicked off. Would fancy a cruiserweight or heavyweight to beat an orangutan.

Ants are pretty hard. That'd be the real test. Gorilla for the undercard. Ants for the main event!

They're not apes though. Monkeys wouldn't be trouble, generally. Apes are the ones without tails, much more like humans in behaviour bigger in build than monkeys. Chimpanzees, gorllias, orangutans, bonobos.

Some people claim humans to be apes, but I've never heard of an ape coming up with something like Bluetooth or tin foil so we're way better than apes.
A juvenile ape would knack the hardest human man its no contest. They are quicker more agile and much stronger than humans.
A juvelile chimp vs peak mike tyson, if tyson lands one properly before the chimp gets hold of his face, who wins?

FROM Quora...

If we assume that the average human can bench press their body weight, and the average gorilla is about 300 pounds, we can conclude that a gorilla could bench press anywhere from 1800–4500 pounds, depending on age, gender, nutrition, and tons of other factors.

Handy!
