R.I.P Arturo Gatti

Another great one goes out before his time, and under sad circumstances as well.

Boxing can be give and take some times but you knew you were always going to get your money's worth with Gatti, one of the best.


Former boxing champion Arturo Gatti, one of the most exciting fighters of his generation, was found dead in a hotel room in the posh seaside resort of Porto de Galihnas early Saturday.

Police investigator Edilson Alves told The Associated Press that the body of the former junior welterweight champ was discovered in his hotel room at the tourist resort, where Gatti had arrived on Friday with his Brazilian wife Amanda and 1-year-old son.
