Dear friends…  Many of you may not know much of boxing, but it’s something I’ve loved for a long time?  Sometimes, just because we know not something; it just can’t void out the importance, the credence involved in it, whatever it may be?

This article is a tribute in all honesty, and not just one fighter, who they called “Arturo Blood n’ Guts, Thunder Gatti,” but all fighters who are unstoppable and like Gatti!  Just saw the movie, “The Fighter” with “Mark Whalberg” who plays “Irish Mickey Ward,” another idol or role model to me as Gatti, the late was to me…  Gatti was murdered  under foul play!  Sad day… He passed away on, April 15 1972 to July 11, 2009

Gatti, who won 40 of his 49 professional fights, including 31 by knockout, was raised in Montreal but became a star in Atlantic City, where he won his first title. He moved to New Jersey in 1991 and delighted crowds there until his retirement in 2007.

Gatti, who was unstoppable, and got up and up and up!  A referee, “Randy Neumann” recalls below.

“I couldn’t stop that fight, simply because he was Arturo Gatti,” Neumann said. “He was much more dignified to go out that way. He had to be counted out. When he fought, you never knew if he could come back. He looked beaten and still came back.” –Boxing Referee Randy Neumann

You’re missed champ, many fans loathed this news, more like baneful news  for all fans!  The late great, “Gatti” will be missed, by me especially and fans just as much…  Rest well Bro, Champ!  Can’t say much more, just that you didn’t deserve what occurred and fight on friend, fight on, always missed you are!

-Peace, Gatti,

A loyal Fan Still and Always: R.;-)

    Any respect for fallen heroes anymore, or is it fake tailor made fighters now? One of the few fighters who never caved, tough as nails just like any champion…

    RIP Friend
