Thanks. I mean if we're talking P4P let's look at the guy who killed a few people in the ring....

Wasnt there some thai boxer who before coming to K1 actually killed someone by round housing them in the head?

Born in Helston, Cornwall and raised in NZ and first British bloke to win World Heavy etc, odd that few realise that he had taken American citizenship prior to winning the Big One and that no one mentions his Irish surname...

The original Hungry Fighter. No wonder Tyson revered him.
Apparently, when he fought Jess Willard, 6ft6ins, etc, Dempsey was told by his notorious Gambling Manager, Jack "Doc" Kearns, that he'd bet the whole purse on a 1st Round KO. This partly helps to explain his ferocious performance. He was out of the Ring heading back to the Dressing Room when he was told that Willard was back on his feet and if Dempsey didn't return, he would forfeit the fight. Dempsey returned and massacred Willard - probably believing that he was now penniless.
He eventually left Kearns and explained it by saying, he was a great manager but they never had any money.
Sorry to distract but hope it helps/amuses.
