Description

Here offered is The Raging Bull – Jake LaMotta Signed 11×14 Photo

LaMotta went 14–0–1 (3 KOs) as a middleweight in his first fifteen bouts before losing a highly controversial split decision to Jimmy Reeves in Reeves’ hometown of Cleveland, Ohio. Chaos erupted after the decision was announced. Fights broke out around the ring and the crowd continued to boo for 20 minutes. The arena’s organist tried to calm down the crowd by playing the “Star Spangled Banner”.

One month later, LaMotta and Reeves fought again in the same arena. Reeves won a much less controversial decision. A third match between the two took place on March 19, 1943 in Detroit, Michigan. The first five rounds were close, though Reeves was struggling in the fourth. In the sixth round, LaMotta floored Reeves, who was only down for a second. Once the fight resumed, LaMotta landed a left on Reeves’ chin, sending him down face-first. Reeves was blinking his eyes and shaking his head as the referee counted him out.

The signature is in black felt pen and grades a (9). Also, the photo is personalized “To Tony, Jake LaMotta, Raging Bull”.
