Inscribed Printed Photograph signed in Ink: "My friend/ Albert/ Raging Bull/ Jake LaMotta" B/w, 10x8 overall, image 9¼x7 (one surface). Captioned at lower margin: "Robinson-LaMotta". Nicknamed the "Bronx Bull" because of his aggressive, charging style, Jake "The Raging Bull" LaMotta (1921-2017) achieved prominence when he won a 10-round decision over Sugar Ray Robinson on February 5, 1943. He and Robinson fought six times, with LaMotta winning only that one bout. On June 16, 1949, LaMotta won the World Middleweight Championship. He defended his title twice, losing it when Robinson knocked him out in the 13th round on February 14, 1951. LaMotta won 83 fights, 30 by knockout, and lost 19, four by knockout (with four draws). He co-authored his autobiography, Raging Bull (1970), which was adapted into the 1981 film starring Robert DeNiro. LaMotta was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1990. Lightly creased at blank margins and corners, light diagonal crease at the bar of the "t" in Motta and three words of writing. Minor surface creases and scratches (most not evident head-on). Defects from original negative have been reproduced at right background. Otherwise, fine condition.
