Giacobbe "Jake" LaMotta (July 10, 1922 – September 19, 2017) was an American professional boxer and former World Middleweight Champion, nicknamed "The Bronx Bull" and "The Raging Bull". LaMotta was known as a rough fighter who would viciously throw punches at his opponents in the ring. LaMotta's six fight rivalry with Sugar Ray Robinson is one of the most notable in the sport, with LaMotta winning just one of the bouts, although each one was close and LaMotta dropped Robinson multiple times.
LaMotta died on September 19, 2017, from complications of pneumonia, at the age of 95.
