Default Re: how fake was the lamotta vs fox dive?

The report of the fight contradicts LaMotta's words that he was not punching back. He couldn't fight in his usual rushing style due to serious injury which he and his doctor concealed from the boxing commission, but which was found out during post-fight investigation. The injury made it difficult to throw any punches at all. There's little reason to trust the words of a person like LaMotta, when the facts contradict that version. LaMotta's brother up until now (when there's no danger whatsoever of a revenge from the mafia) still hasn't confirmed that he arranged a fix.
