Arturo Gatti R.I.P
Posted by Gavin at 1:43 pm
Just came into work to the news that Arturo Gatti has died while on holidays in Brazil. I'm not going to examine his life here, nor the circumstances of his death, but I just felt that I should mark the death of a man who was one half of Ring Magazine's Fight of the Year on four occasions. An all-out slugger who never took a backward step, Gatti gave boxing fans some of our most thrilling nights.
Here's my own personal favourite. It's the obvious one - Round 9 from Gatti's first clash with Mickey Ward.
