Jack Dempsey, born as William Harrison Dempsey on June 24, 1895, in Manassa, Colorado, was an American professional boxer in the heavyweight division. He gained prominence in the 1920s as one of the most popular and successful boxers of his time.

Dempsey began his boxing career in 1914, fighting under the name "Kid Blackie," and quickly made a name for himself with his powerful punches and aggressive fighting style.
