Boxing fans will see a lot of this today…

St Valentines Day Massacre
World Middleweight Championship
February 14, 1951
Chicago Stadium, Chicago, Illinois

In the third defense of the Middleweight title, 🇺🇸Jake Lamotta was able to still proclaim that he had never been dropped, but he was not able to leave with his belt.

👑🇺🇸Sugar Ray Robinson unleashed hell on Lamotta, specifically in the 13th round when he battered and bloodied the “Bronx Bull” to the point referee Frank Sykora jumped in to stop the beating. The beating Lamotta took forever labeled the fight “The St Valentines Day Massacre”.
