Boxer Jake LaMotta, whose life was chronicled in the Oscar-winning 1980 movie “Raging Bull,” has died, according to the Associated Press.
His fiancee, Denise Baker, says LaMotta died Tuesday at a Miami-area hospital from complications of pneumonia.
LaMotta, nicknamed “The Raging Bull,” was a former world champion in boxing’s middleweight division.
His career record was 83-19-4 with 30 knockouts, according to the International Boxing Hall of Fame. He was inducted into the hall in 1990.
Actor Robert DeNiro won an Academy Award for his portrayal of LaMotta in “Raging Bull.”
