Jake LaMotta & Rubin “Hurricane” Carter

I remember when Schenectay County boxing fans were horrified to hear on July 14, 1960, that former middleweight champion Jake LaMotta had told a senate committee that he had thrown a fight in 1947.  LaMotta said he was pressured to take a dive if he wanted a shot at the title.  Also on December 21, 1976, when boxer Rubin “Hurricane ” Carter was convicted for the murders of three people in a Patterson, New Jersey bar.
