Responsible for handing Sugar Ray Robinson his first professional loss, the Bronx Bull's granite chin and ferocious fighting style made him a threat in multiple weight classes. Early in 1952 though he would fall to the formidable Norman Hayes after ten see-saw rounds, a few short months later he would avenge that loss. From that battle come LaMotta's soft, supple, burgandy "Everlast" gloves, trimmed in tan leather and equipped with their original white laces. On the face of both gloves is a small area of tape residue beneath the brand taggings and printed on both inner wrists is "Jake Lamotta" in faded, though legible, black ink. Comes with LOA from the son of former Boxing Commissioner.
