    Terrible News ,Arturo Gatti found dead

    Arturo Gatti found dead!

    Legendary former world champion Arturo Gatti, 37, has reportedly been found dead inside a beachside flat he was renting at the Hotel Dorisol of Porto de Galinhas, Pernambuco, Brazil. He was found by his wife early Saturday with a head injury. Gatti had arrived with his wife and baby on Friday on their honeymoon. Local police consider his death suspicious.


    RIP. Arturo was a legendary WARRIOR . He gave his all every time out, he had the heart of a lion. By all accounts he was a super nice person as well.
    For those that never saw him fight. This guy made Rocky Movies look tame by comparison. His three fights with Mickey Ward are some of the all time best fights ever. Arturo was the only fighter that HBO would put back on after losses, he was that exciting, everyone who likes boxing loved him.
    This news makes me very sad.

    I thought the trilogy of matches with Mickey Ward was some of the best boxing I had ever seen too. This has been a bad year for celebrities and sports figures. Sheesh.
    God bless our troops!

    The guy was tough as a wooden boot.
    the Gatti / Ward fights were the very definition of heart and guts. ( from both fighters )

    Unfortunately, it may be the wife that did him in.
    It isn't always a stranger...

    A fighter who didn't know the word SURRENDER. Always a thrill to see in the ring. No posing or BS he was all fight from bell to bell.

    I never seen him put on a bad fight. He always competed and gave it his all.

    Killed by the wife.
    That is so tragic and just plain wrong. How could she do that to Gatti ? This just makes it worse.
    Too bad that we can't go back in time a day, so that this didn't happen.
    My family and friends, just about all boxing fans, are really torn up by this. I am too.
    Gatti was so real, so honest in the ring that you couldn't help but love the guy. 16 years of watching him give his all will do that I guess. After what he did in the ring ,Gatti deserved to live to be 100.

    It's been a bad year for celebrities, McMahon, Fawcett, Jackson, McNair, Gatti, and I'm sure I missed several.
