[CROWD CHEERING]

COMMENTATOR:

Jake LaMotta, in his corner,

believes he can whip

anybody in the world,

and he's trying to prove it tonight.

He has set, as you can see,

to make an all-out effort

to retain that heralded crown.

[SOFT MUSIC]

[NEWSREEL MUSIC PLAYS]

NEWS:
The nation's underworld

gets the unwelcome spotlight

of publicity as the Senate's

investigation subcommittee

begins new hearings on crime.

This he describes as the government

of organized gambling,

narcotics peddling,

extortion, racketeering

and controlling of certain trade unions.

He says the income runs into billions.

[ALL CLAMORING]

Will you be disclosing any

criminal names, Mr. LaMotta?

Does organized crime

call the shots in Boston?

What about your brother, Jake?

Is he involved in this?

Will you be disclosing

any organized-crime names?

What about your brother Joey?

Is he involved in this?

Look, fellas, ladies, I don't

really have anything to say.

I'll tell you what.

Things work out in there,

I'll join youse all for a beer.

[ALL CLAMORING]

BONOMI:
Mr. LaMotta, you were

a professional boxer

from 1941 to approximately 1954?

Is that correct?

Yes, sir.

And, uh, how many bouts have you had?

Amateur, professional, about 125.

And at one time you were

the middleweight champion

of the world, is that right?

Yes, sir, I was.

Can you tell us some of

your prominent fights?

Well, I fought Ray Robinson six times.

I won the middleweight championship

from Marcel Cerdan.

Fought Pritzi Zivic four times,

Laurent Dauthuille twice.

Knocked him out in the 15th round.

Retained my title.

Do you want me to go through

all 125 of these?

'Cause I gotta tell you,

Your Honor, you know,

I got punched in the head a lot,

and I'm not sure my memory's

all that good.

Remember Billy Fox. You fought him

at the Park Arena in 1947.

Yes, sir, I fought Billy Fox.

That fight was listed as a knockout.

Billy Fox knocked you out.

For the record, is there

anything you want to state

- about that fight?

- If I'm gonna make a statement,

I'd like to start at the beginning,

if it's all right with the court.

BONOMI:

You can make any statement you like.

Stupid Irish.

Pardon, Mickey.

Giuseppe wants a word.

Gimme a minute.

He wants to tell you how

Hello, Mickey. Mickey,
