The Saint Valentine's Day MASSACRE - Sugar Ray Robinson vs Jake LaMotta Full Fight In HD ( 2 Of 2)


The Saint Valentine's Day Massacre sugar ray Robinson vs Jake LaMotta full fight in HD presented by MosleyBoxing TV! Jake LaMotta was Sugar Ray Robinson's bloody Valentine 65 years ago in a savage world middleweight title fight. I fought Sugar Ray so often I almost got diabetes," Jake LaMotta has often joked and the most painful of those six fights was at Chicago Stadium on St. Valentine's Day in 1951. It is one of the most famous fights in boxing history and LaMotta is still alive today to tell the tale. The pair's most famous fight ended when Robinson stopped LaMotta in a punishing 13th round to win the undisputed world middleweight title. LaMotta, now 94, has retold his version of events over and over, but the punchlines have never gone flat. "If the referee had held up another 30 more seconds, Sugar Ray would have collapsed from hitting me," said LaMotta. They fought six times over nine years and it pitched contrasting styles against each other: LaMotta, known as the Bronx Bull, was a rugged brawler while Robinson was a slick boxing genius based in Harlem. In their second fight in 1943, Robinson lost on points for his first defeat following 40 professional wins. Robinson got revenge just 21 days later and in 1946 was crowned world welterweight champion. But it was at middleweight that they met for the sixth and final time. LaMotta's world middleweight title, which he won from Frenchman Marcel Cerdan in June 1949, was on the line and he was still the only man to have beaten Robinson.
