    ROBOT WEDNESDAY: Jack Dempsey vs. Robots

    Originally posted in our YMAS forum.

    OK, this is an old (OLD!) entry but I remembered it was lurking in MartialHistory's archives as I was checking for anything new and I knew that Bullshido would love it.

    Jack Dempsey vs. the Evil Robots

    “I can whip any mechanical robot that ever has or ever will be made.”

    So said Jack Dempsey. Captain Billy Fawcet, former WWI Army Captain, apparently talked Jack Dempsey into doing this puff piece for Fawcett’s biggest magazine, Modern Mechanix, in 1934.

    The idea of the early sci-fi robot battling the hard hitting fighter is captivating and much more interesting than the article itself. (Click on the pic above to read the article).

    The article is relative fluff, ostensibly pointing out boxing tips from the champ’s perspective, but my guess is Dempsey had little to do with the article. He describes how physics is involved in punching and posits that a robot will always be defeated by a boxer’s out-thinking it.




    Absolute classic gold!

    Peace favor your sword,
    Kirk

    How do you intend to get them to fight each other, exactly? Jack Dempsey's been dead for over 20 years...

    I was really hoping this would be written in the form of bad fan fiction. Please, someone make it happen.
