Giuseppe "Joey" LaMotta (April 27, 1925 – December 29, 2020) was the younger brother and one time manager of former world middleweight boxing champion, Jake LaMotta.

LaMotta also boxed for a short time in 1945 and 1946. His record was 32 wins (22 KOs), 5 losses (1 KO), and 2 draws.

His son, John LaMotta was an actor and also an amateur boxer who fought in the heavyweight-novice class of the 2001 Golden Gloves championship tournament.[3][4]

He died in December 2020 at the age of 95.
