I wanted to show some love for the guy...I know so many guys that wanna shit on the guy every chance they get and never got it. The guy had heart and loved the same sport I do. Question though; Does he/should he make the Boxing Hall of Fame? I have thought about it myself and say yes EASY if Rock Balboa did! The guy had major balls and a good career for limited skills but man did he have some heart!!! RIP Arturo Gatti!!!!

Gatti embodied the heart of boxing, and the tragedy of it all.

He was a champion. And was the most exciting fighter I have ever seen, and showed super human heart in there. I would put him in for all he has gave to the sport.
