Dick Tiger would have KO Jake lamotta IMO, Tiger was one of those fighter would just loves to fight and his style would have been difficult to handle for la motta.

What a fight this would've been, both guys liked to come forward and liked to provide action while doing it. I do think that Tiger was the more intelligent fighter of the two though and possessed a bigger repertoire, so I think he wins this by decision in an action packed fight.

Those two could have fought in a phone-booth.

The big risk for Tiger in this fight is if he were to be outworked because LaMotta will be throwing a lot more punches in combinations than Tiger. Otherwise the match-up should suit him stylistically. He was a very good counter-puncher and matches LaMotta's physical strength which the likes of Ray Robinson, Marcel Cerdan and Holman Williams could not.

Fullmer had to literally run against Tiger in order to survive. LaMotta won't do that but I doubt that a prime Jake would be KO'd by Tiger. He took it from a prime Ray Robinson, Lloyd Marshall, Bob Satterfield and laughed it off. Tiger's KO record is deceiving though, he knocked out many durable fighters. Didn't just stop them but knocked them out. So there will be a possibility of a stoppage win because LaMotta will walk right into Tiger which suits him but LaMotta was a better defensive fighter than the likes of Fullmer or Rivera who just stood there and took it for the most part, until Fullmer got on his bicycle.

I can't see a prime LaMotta being "massacred" the way he was against Robinson in their 6th fight because he always displayed very good stamina in the late rounds while at his best. Only his weight-making later got to him.

No way Would Lamotta be massacred but Tiger is a big Middleweight would does well against fighters who are short like him, Fullmer had to stay away from Tiger because he doesnt have the intensity/chin that Lamotta possess.

I would still favour Tiger slightly but would rule out Lamotta by any chance.

Great match up I'm suprised that this one hasn't come up before, both probably as physically strong a middleweight as there has been. If we was going for a best of ten match up i'd favour La Motta as Tiger could be a bit inconsistant. One fight who do you risk putting your money on....Tiger think unless you are a dancer he is always going to give you hell at his best.

Tiger was a good counter puncher but at times you get the feeling that he would have been better off by being more of a "tiger" in the ring. Look at how he takes apart Fullmer in their third fight, that's probably the most aggressive I've ever seen him. Often he would appear timid, content on doing just enough which wasn't always enough.

He should have put more pressure on boxers such as Griffith, Giardello, Archer.

Hard match-up to predict, neither man at their best are going to get stopped by the other. Tiger was a little better technically but LaMotta was cagey on the inside and despite what Raging Bull might suggest he didn't get hit with every punch that comes his way. If I was forced to make a pick I would go with Tiger.
