Jake LaMotta dead: 'Raging Bull' boxing legend dies aged 95

Quote:
Jake LaMotta – the legendary boxer depicted by Robert DeNiro in Raging Bull – has died, aged 95...

He liked to fight on the inside and was famous for stalking his opponents, who often had bigger punches, but less grit and determination. He is regarded as having one of the best chins in the history of the sport.

In an era of premium middleweights, LaMotta had some epic encounters. Most notable among these were six hair-raising fights with his great rival Sugar Ray Robinson...

The last time the media encountered LaMotta, a reporter asked him what he thought of DeNiro's boxing in the film. LaMotta replied that he thought DeNiro was a fine boxer, maybe should have gone professional.
Rest in peace, champ.

He didn’t really die. He just sort of petered out.

Maybe a distant cousin. Families both from Texas, Petty is a family name.

To bad, I always loved his music. Free Falling was brilliant.

Multiple conflicting reports and now status is listed as still in critical condition.
Details sketchy but with reported "no brain activity" it is tough to know how he will even make it through the rest of the day.

Tom Petty was reported dead then not dead. Which makes sense because you can stand him up at the gates of hell but he won’t back down.

Yes, found out after I posted. Last I heard, PDT he was taken off of life-support.
