R.I.P. Arturo "Thunder" Gatti

What is widely regarded as one of the greatest fights of all time took place on May 18 2002 between Mickey Ward and Arturo Gatti. I watched the fight live on HBO and have to agree, it was amazing. Unfortunately Gatti was found murdered in his hotel room in Brazil this past Saturday. His wife is believed to be responsible.

This video is round 9.


  1. That's two tough dudes. They're supposed to be making a movie about Micky Ward.

  2. arturo made me proud to be italian and showed me what real heart is RIP champ god bless "sangu di me sangu"

  3. Twister-I read about the movie yesterday. That should be interesting.

    Alexis-He definitely had heart. I'm sure Mickey Ward is taking this pretty hard. They became good friends after their series of fights.
