Every Death to Occur in Ring.
Boxing is a dangerous sport, at one point too dangerous. In the early days of the sport death occurred more often. As time went on, medical treatment improved, and less deaths arose in the sport. That didn't stop a murder from completely disappearing though. The most famous since being Ray Mancini's fight in Korea with Duk Koo Kim. The Movie Cinderella Man also had a take on a in ring death. Frankie Campbell was the fighter who died from his brain knocked from his skull, in the movie his killer Max Baer is wrongfully portrayed as a madman, though it was nothing more than an accident.
The World Champion Jess Willard took on Jack Dempsey in 1919. Few gave Dempsey a chance, but Willard would have the worst fight of his career. A broken jaw, broken ribs, partial loss of hearing, and several missing teeth were the result of this bout. Willard hardly could step into the ring again, and his corner stopped the fight for his own safety.
