Re: Brutal Dempsey sparring Knockout in slow motion
This is a basic physics problem. It's not that hard to understand. The extra padding literally results in the force being transferred more slowly and over a greater distance and area. To knock someone out, you need to accelerate their head past a certain limit. The extra padding results in a lower acceleration of the head.
Imagine running into a brick wall and running into a padded wall. The force transfer of your body into the wall will be the same. The difference is basically in how fast your body comes to a stop (decelerates). Against the brick wall the force transfer occurs almost instantly, which results in damage to the tissues, bones, etc. The padded wall results in a slower stop as the padding literally squishes in, which results in less damage.
