    Tiger by comfortable decision. LaMotta can't press him.

    Tiger outfought Fullmer, he might be one of the very few that could stop Jake in his tracks.

    I have to be honest here. Jake LaMotta was before my time. All I've ever seen of him were the films everyone else has seen.

    But I've never watched a LaMotta fight where I was impressed with what he was doing. He seemed to win simply on volume of punches thrown more than anything else. But he didn't seem particularly good at much else.

    I'd take Tiger by wide decision or TKO.

    Whilst I agree with Tiger UD, there's very few Middleweights that could TKO or KO LaMotta

    I guess I have to come to the rescue of LaMotta here ! He was a beast. I have to think about this one.

    Tiger usually only had trouble against movers. There are not many that could beat the great African otherwise. It's likely LaMotta would end up looking like he did on Feb' 14th.

    I feel Tiger starts to wear down then batter's Jake. Either a clean UD or TKO

    If Jake is in mid 40's form (not weight drained) I think he would win a decision over Tiger. LaMotta was smarter and more skilled than people give him credit for.
    Tiger was strong as well. It would be rough. I don't see LaMotta taking a backseat in this one. He fought and beat alot of good fighters.
