He lost the middleweight title to him in what became known as the St. Valentine's Day Massacre.In his previous fight, LaMotta saved the championship in movie-script fashion against Laurent Dauthuille. Trailing badly, LaMotta knocked out the challenger with 13 seconds left.LaMotta threw a fight against Billy Fox, which he admitted in testimony before a U.S. Senate committee. He said he was promised a shot at a title.On June 16, 1949, he became middleweight champion when Marcel Cerdan couldn't continue after the 10th round.
