Jake LaMotta, a man whose better traits were described as being a “reprehensible, obnoxious, despicable sonnuvabitch,” has finally died.

I never saw him fight, and most of what I know about him was from Raging Bull, but my Dad once said he had no real boxing talent besides hate and stubbornness, and he made a career out of it. Apparently his real life was not the Cinderella story that the movie portrayed. He did survive 6 fights with a prime Sugar Ray Robinson, and 6 marriages, both of which are fairly impressive.


RIP Sir
