Giacobbe La Motta (born July 10, 1921), better known as Jake LaMotta, nicknamed ‘The Bronx Bull’ and ‘The Raging Bull’, is a former boxer who was world middleweight champion and whose life has been as controversial outside the ring as it was inside it.
He was portrayed by Robert De Niro in the biopic Raging Bull. LaMotta, who compiled a record of 83 wins, 19 losses and 4 draws with 30 wins by way of knockout, was the first man to beat Sugar Ray Robinson, knocking him down in the first round and out pointing him over the course of ten rounds during the second fight of their legendary six bout rivalry.
Jake Lamotta has signed the photo of him knocking Sugar Ray Robinson through the ropes during their fight in 1943. He has also added his inscription ‘Raging Bull’ which has professionally framed.
