Old Lamotta

"I had a lot of injuries," legendary boxer Jake Lamotta once recalled, "but considering that I fought for more than 15 years [in more than 120 professional bouts], I didn't do so bad. I broke my nose six times, an occupational hazard. I had 56 stitches in my eye, I broke my hand six times and I broke a rib. But I broke four ribs after a fall recently, so I have had more injuries since I retired!"
