    Description

    1944 Jake LaMotta Signed Fight Contract & Addendum. Always popular among boxing aficionados, LaMotta became a household name after Robert Deniro's award-winning portrayal of him in the acclaimed "Raging Bull," providing an unflinching look at the complex and violent Middleweight Champion. Here we find a contract and addendum for LaMotta's November 3, 1944 meeting with George Kochan, a fight which would end with a ninth round knockout of the challenger. Both the standard contract and the addendum discussing particulars about compensation for the bout are signed by LaMotta in 10/10 black ink. Matching documents for Kochan are here as well, each likewise in fine condition. Completing the lot are contracts only (no addendums) signed by the other fighters on the card, missing only one. The contracts provided: Arnold Deer, Wilfie Shanks, Al Ellis, Ray Tellino, Johnny Martin, Larry Ray and Willie Watkins. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
