Arturo "Thunder" Gatti - April 15, 1972 to July 11, 2009 by 


Boxing professionally for 16 years, his bouts in Atlantic City becoming a staple of HBO television, Gatti could be counted on for virtually nonstop action leaving both boxers bloody. Known as “Thunder” for his powerful punches, Gatti won 40 fights, 31 by knockout, and lost 9. He held the International Boxing Federation super featherweight title and the World Boxing Council light welterweight crown.

He was best remembered for three brutal fights with Micky Ward, losing on a decision in May 2002, then winning by decision in November ’02 and June ’03.

On July 11, 2009, Gatti was found murdered in a hotel in Ipojuca, Pernambuco, Brazil. Gatti’s widow has been charged with first degree murder after the strap of her purse was found stained with blood. Gatti was to attend his sister’s wedding the following day. Rodrigues could not explain how she spent more than ten hours in the hotel room without realizing Gatti was dead.

    he will be missed

  • Yeah, he was a heck of a fighter. All the guys I liked to watch seem to be gone now. Camacho, Piaz, Gatti, etc. I am not sure if Roy jr. is retired now or not.
