R.I.P Arturo

my thoughts go out to his family at this time

Arturo was a true warrior and will always be remembered among fight fans as one of the most exciting to watch. no matter how bad he was hurt he always fought on with determination courage and sheer will power. He always amazed me how he never gave up fighting

Gatti vs Ward = definition of a slugfest and one of the greatest most brutal fights we shall ever witness

I'll never stop respecting Gatti or Arguelo.. They've both just joined an ever increasing list.. I would be happy just to have achieved less than half of either man. World class = World class.. If we're honest, how many of us could aspire to their heights? I for one, have never been a world champion at anything.. That's the reality of losing..

I love you man..
I send my prayers out to your family, and baby daughter

So often you hear the words "throw back fighter" but Gatti was truly one of those. He could actually box better than people give him credit for, he wasn't just a brawler but he chose to brawl because he loved to stand and trade and see who was the tougher guy.

Gatti will go down as one of the most repspected fighters eer because there was no quit in him.

Not the most talented fighter I have seen but i'd struggle to think of a braver fighter.

Thousands of people fell in love with boxing because of Arturo Gatti.

I had Gatti-Ward 1 on at a house party. At the start of the fight, there were 2 people watching. By the 7th round there were about 20 people watching. By the end of the fight, people were tearing up and cheering like they were at a live event and their favorite fighter of all time was fighting, and the entire party was in 1 room.

Truest warriors of the last 15 years- Gatti, Corrales, Izzy, Morales. Are there any left?

Arturo's passing got me paralized, atonished for a week long, unable to think of boxing actuality. Sad to the bone. That's how it felt.

RIP hero! :boxing:

You want to get someone into boxing? Show them an Arturo Gatti fight. Boxing lost a true warrior. I wouldn't be too surprised if a dictionary has Gatti's pic next to the word 'Heart'. May he rest in peace.

Arturo Gatti, you are nothing short of INSPIRING

If there was anything that define you it was, HEART,DETERMINATION, and just the WILL and REFUSAL TO GO DOWN...

i was watchin HBO's special on the gatti-ward trilogy and i had to stop myself from tearin up a lil bit....

it is just so sad that a great warrior like you had to go the way you did

REST IN PEACE
