Boxing legend Jake LaMotta has died at the age of 95 following complications from pneumonia, his wife Denise has confirmed.
The American sportsman, nicknamed The Raging Bull, was a former middleweight champion who won 83 of his 106 professional bouts between 1941 and 1954.
Thirty of those victories were by way of knockout, and the New York-born boxer also recorded four draws, as well as 19 defeats during his career in the ring.
LaMotta's wife Denise told TMZ: "I just want people to know, he was a great, sweet, sensitive, strong, compelling man with a great sense of humor, with eyes that danced."
The fighter had a fierce rivalry with Sugar Ray Robinson, whom he fought six times but only managed to win one of those meetings.
