Jake LaMotta

£ 29.00

Jake LaMotta, also known as The Bronx Bull due to his aggressive bully-style fighting technique. LaMotta was also known for his ability to roll with the punches thrown at him and could take big hits, and was actually willing to take them if it meant setting himself up for an even bigger one in return! LaMotta was unfortunately linked to Mafia underworld dealings and admitted to throwing at least one fight (with Billy Fox) so the mob would arrange a title bout against Marcel Cerdan for him in return, but I think LaMotta should be remembered and admired for his courage and ability in the ring and the fact that he was the first man to beat Sugar Ray Robinson rather than his dealings with the mob. It is a shame he was involved in throwing that fight, but what was he to do.. when the Mafia ask for something it is hard to refuse! Admire one of the greatest middleweights of all time with this t-shirt!

Our t-shirts are unique for being wholly made with CoolMax freshFX. CoolMax is a patented fibre designed to wick perspiration and accelerate moisture evaporation, keeping wearers cooler and drier. This wicking feature of the fabric is made possible by micro channels engineered into the profile of and surface of the fibre. These channels are cleverly dimensioned to exploit the surface tension and capillary action of water. Being physical properties of the fibre, these channels endure and do not significantly diminish with wear or washing.

Antimicrobial (freshFX) treatment stops the propagation of odour producing bacteria. This is achieved by embedding silver salt crystals into the structure of the fibre. FreshFX treatment like the wicking is permanent and does not leach out with everyday use. These characteristics ensure the shirts remain cool, dry and odour free regardless of what you might do in them. Performance of the fabric is guaranteed through a certified and monitored manufacturing process.
