Wink Let's talk Jake Lamotta

Sorry can't help myself, just re-watched Raging Bull.

How do you guys rank him as an ATG MW? Or do you not consider him an ATG MW? I think some people confuse him as a brawler but he was much more than that.

In my opinion Sugar Ray Robinson was the greatest p4p boxer of all time and nobody even comes close. The fact that Lamotta has a win over him in his prime and never got knocked down in what, 7 or 8 fights makes lamotta one hell of a fighter.

One thing I think we can all agree on, they just don't make boxers the same as SRR or lamotta these days.

Ali basically admitted SRR was his idol. He tried to emulate his style his entire career.

SRR: The greatest boxer of all time
Lamotta: one tough SOB, great boxer

pamotta is an top 100 or top 50 atg IMO

and certainly top ten atg mw

much more tan a vrawler

just watch his fight with robinson(the only one ther is tape of), he is practicaly shpt and pr weight drained but he manages t give srr the fight of his life

he had a very good jab and was relently with body punches and could roll and sli[ punches well

he was a skilled pressure fighter infighter

if he was jsut a brawler hw wouldnt have done the things he did

I've seen some people say he was no better than Carlos Baldimir. But I don't take them seriously because they obviously don't know what they're talking about.

I didn't like how Scorsese projected his own Catholicism on Jake in the movie (the book reveals the young LaMotta to be completely areligious). One of many reasons why I don't like the film.

Good ol'LaMotta. IMO best chin ever, only Chuvalo contests him there. One of if not THE greatest body puncher of all time.

And Raging Bull is a great movie. Deniro did a stellar job.
