I never thought I would type this sentence, but… “women, please stop killing your husbands and boyfriends.” Jesus, I get it. Some men are pigs, some cheat on their spouses and girlfriends and some are just bad partners. That doesn’t mean you kill them. Saturday in Brazil, junior middleweight champion boxer Arturo Gatti was found dead in his hotel room at a seaside resort in Porto de Galinhas. Gatti was honeymooning with his wife and 10 month old son when he was found dead with no bullet or knife wounds but blood on the floor around the bed. Authorities now say that Gatti's 23-year-old Brazilian wife, Amanda Rodrigues is in custody and has been accused by police of killing Gatti. Apparently, strangled in his sleep in addition to wounds to the head. I don’t know anything about Gatti’s personal life. All I know is that Arturo Gatti was a fierce fighter who never quit even when he was brutally beaten. He was the true definition of the “warrior” hyperbole. Most fighters have 1 or 2 memorable fights. Gatti had at least 8. Three of which were with Mickey Ward, a trilogy known best for producing the fight of the century. Witness round 9 of Gatti-Ward 1.
