Into the Sports Vault: Jake LaMotta

I didn’t know too much about Jake LaMotta when I first learned of him (after reading the Topps Allen & Ginter checklist), so of course, I had to look him up on the always-reputable Wikipedia. Long story short, LaMotta gave Sugar Ray Robinson his first defeat, the only victory for LaMotta in his 5 bouts with Robinson. There’s also that Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre deal . . .
