Giacobbe "Jake" LaMotta was a professional boxer from the United States who held the title of middleweight world champion from 1949 to 1951.

He gained a reputation as a "bully" through constant stalking, aggression, and inside fighting; he was what are now frequently referred to as a swarmer and a slugger. In a time of great middleweights, LaMotta frequently received as much as he gave due to his aggressive fighting style.
