Default Would Dempsey's Willard beating...

Kill any of todays heavyweights?

Lets say he gets to loom over them and unload the exact same shots against them.

Would any of them die? And why?

Absolutley impossible to say.

It's possible. Willard was a naturally large raw boned toughman, not an artificially steroid inflated hulk. He'd also had a resume which included winning the HW Title over 26 rounds in 100+degree heat. But I don't believe today's boxers have the sort of heart which induced Willard to keep getting up until the bell saved him.

Possible, but with the extensive medical exams these days, its not as likely as it was then IMO.

I think it has the potential to kill some smaller HW's, like Byrd.

No way, these guys were fought before 1956. And as we all know boxers improve the movement Rocky Marciano retire. Had Dempsey unload on say Wald or VK, Dempsey would break his hands. I mean these guys are near bullet proof. We all know they would crush Dempsey the movement they landed on him. And Dempsey's punchings would be like hitting VK with a feather or something soft.

Killing a man doesn't make you a big hitter, lightweights/feathweights kill opponents even today

Men rarely get killed from a 2-3round beating. A prolonged beating is what usually causes ring death

Tyson/Foreman unleashed bigger attacks on opponents and they didn't die either
