Corrales but the Gatti fight was so unbelievably one-sided that it is somewhat underrated. Floyd was expected to win clean by outboxing him, but there were quite a few who didn't think Floyd would stand up to Gatti's power. Whether or not they admit that now is a separate issue. We never found out because Gatti couldn't touch him, which was remerkable because Floyd stood in there and put an absolute BEATING on him.
