And the list goes on for the high profile people that have had their lives cut short in the last month or so. Truly sad. Gatti was an eciting boxer to watch.

He was the most exciting boxer I've ever seen. The heart of a true champion. I, like everyone else, is devastated by this.

R.I.P Arturo "Thunder" Gatti

I haven't followed boxing in years. But his was a name that I recognized. I'm sure he was credit to his sport and will be missed by fan and peers alike. RIP brother.

If you aren't familiar with him take some time to watch one of the greatest rounds in boxing history, round 9 of his first fight with Micky Ward.

Their fight later was declaired the 1990's fight of the decade


Round 9

apparently authorities are confirming that his wife did do it. another unbelievable death, it really is not a good time to be a celebrity right now. its been a very strange couple of weeks.
