    Arturo Gatti was found dead today.
    That's all we hear on the radio here in his hometown.

    Yup. He truly was the modern-day Rocky Balboa.
    He would get a beating and a half and then still get up and knock-out the opponent.

    Damn that sucks! He really was an awesome competitor/warrior.
    I'm not even a huge boxing fan anymore (on mma bandwagon now), but Gatti v Ward is still one of my fave fights of all time (mma included).

    RIP Arturo

    I just watched round 9 of that fight on youtube again. Like you said, one of the best fight ever.

    Hated to hear that, very sad indeed. Win or lose, a Gatti fight was always spectacular.
