Jake LaMotta, known as "The Raging Bull," has died at the age of 95 on Sept. 19. LaMotta's daughter, Christi, posted the news on Facebook. Giacobbe "Jake" LaMotta was nicknamed "The Raging Bull" for his rough and brawling style. The former World Middleweight Champion had many tough battles against some of the best middleweights of all time, including his six-fight rivalry against "Sugar" Ray Leonard. LaMotta finished his career with a record of 83-19-4, with 30 wins by KO. LaMotta's story inspired the movie "Raging Bull," starring Robert De Niro. Hollywood stars paid tribute to one of the greatest boxers in history.
