More sad news

Posted: July 11, 2009 in Boxing

I know I been gone for a second, and unfortunately this is what my first post back is.

Arturo Gatti was found dead in a Brazilian hotel room. Gatti was in some of the most exciting fights in recent boxing.

Gatti was a true warrior. His face often looked like mince meat after the bout, but the fans loved him for it. Gatti was like the KG of boxing, he was either all-go or no-go.

Obviously, his bouts with Ward are what he is known for.

Last week was difficult in sports and I imagine this week will be equally so. Two thousand nine will go down as the year some truly legendary figures left this plane for a higher existence.

RIP Arturo “Thunder” Gatti, may your soul have eternal sleep.
