Surprised there's so little interest in this one, it's a recent upload of a legendary comeback finish.

Damn, that's some dramatic ****! He had only won 4 rounds going into the 15th. That's the thing with boxing. It ain't over until it's over as Yogi so eloquently put it.

LaMotta probably staged more late round comebacks than any other fighter. None as dramatic as this one but he often seemed to play possum, faking he was more tired than he actually were, and then unleashed combinations on his unexpecting opponent.

His showboating also cost him some fights though.
