The Dead Pool arose when Chris Eubank fought Michael Watson in 1991. An amazing battle to be sure but I opened up a book on when Watson was going to peg it, from then on the Dead Pool began. It’s amazing to think that I’ve been collating this for over twenty years!!
Over the years the rules have changed and the Dead Pool has evolved into what it is today. A sick little game where you pick 13 names of notable people you think are going to die in the following year then sit back and leave the Grim Reaper to do his work. It’s not as easy as it looks, some of the competitors take it very seriously and research throughout the year to find those celebrities with cancer or some other serious illness. But at the end of the day it’s just a bit of fun, trying to make light of a terrible thing.
