Following his retirement from boxing, LaMotta worked in the bar industry, wrote books, acted, and did stand-up comedy. He was inducted into a number of halls of fame, including the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1990. Despite having a few run-ins with the law throughout his life, LaMotta was loved and respected by the boxing world for his intense fighting style. In his later years, LaMotta was often seen attending autograph signings and meet and greets with fans. I had the honor to meet LaMotta in the spring of 2014 at an autograph signing in White Plains, NY.
RIP Jake LaMotta.
