Robert Deniro delivers the classic line in Raging Bull, beaten and bloodied but telling Sugar Ray: “You never got me down, Ray.” That may have been true but Robinson got the best of Lamotta in their many fights together — six in total. According to his website, in 1997, The Ring magazine named Sugar Ray “pound for pound, the best boxer of all time.” Then in 1999 the Associated Press named him both the greatest welterweight and middleweight boxer of the century.
Lamotta was immortalized in the film Raging Bull, and as we mentioned above, he was in numerous wars with Sugar Ray Robinson. The famous “St. Valentine’s Day Massacre” fight was featured in the film. Lamotta debuted in 1941, and by the end of 1943, he had already amassed 47 pro fights. He was knocked down only once in his career, one of the toughest men to ever enter a ring.
Jack Dempsey, aka “The Manassa Mauler,” was a vicious power puncher who held the heavyweight title for over seven years. He is a member of the Boxing Hall of Fame, and one of the first boxers to become a household name. In 1950 he was named the greatest boxer of the past 50 years by the Associated Press, and he is considered one of the greatest heavyweight fighters of all-time.
Joe Louis is one of the greatest boxers of all-time. “The Brown Bomber” is ranked first on The Ring’s list of top power punchers, and he defended his title 25 times. The International Boxing Research Organization ranked him as the greatest heavyweight of all time. You can also rep Detroit with this new Roots of Fight Cardigan, as well as your boxing cred!
