Arturo Gatti Highlights

I recently learned that an Arturo Gatti video that I posted last year had been removed from Youtube. Today is a fitting day to add it back to the blog as July 11th marks the one year anniversary of his passing. The original tribute from Gorilla Productions can be seen below.

Next, you’ll find a compilation of Gatti’s classic trilogy with Micky Ward.

I still can’t believe it has been a year since he passed. It seems like yesterday we were talking about his tragic death. Time certainly flies, but the memories that Arturo Gatti left the boxing world are still as vivid as ever. I’m thankful to have seen some of his action in person.

RIP to a true warrior

  1. Arturo Gatti is my idol. I saved my pennies to fly over to Atlantic City to see him against Mayweather. Although he was past his best and he was fighting an exceptional fighter who was at his peak I still feel privilaged that I got to see him fight live. He’s the reason I started boxing and hence the reason I love my training, the reason I visit this site!! Arturo Gatti is an all time legend, a warrior in every sense of the word. Those fights with Rodriguez, Ruelas, Robinson and of course Ward are some of the best fights you’ll ever see.

    RIP Arturo ‘Thunder’ Gatti, boxing isn’t the same without him.

  2. Gatti was a warrior, no doubt about it. He wasn’t the most skilled or technically sound boxer, but he took whatever talent he had and squeezed every last drop out of it. His title defense fight against Wilson Rodriguez in March of 1996 (Gatti – 6th Round KO) was the first time I watched him fight, and he instantly became my favourite boxer. He remained so until his death. His heart and determination won out over many opponents who had the edge in talent. Win or lose, he was just so much fun to watch. There won’t be another like him.
