8 Of The Most Intense Historical Rivalries

Al Capone vs. Bugs Moran - The Italian boss against the Irish boss in 20th century Chicago - these guys ran things, but were at each others’ throats the entire time. Robbery, arson, murder, they didn’t really have moral compasses. In the end, Capone served some time and was never able to build his criminal empire back up, and Moran died in jail while serving time for a bank robbery. That one sort of fizzled out.
