Former IBF Super featherweight and WBC Junior Welterweight Champion Arturo Gatti has died today. He was found dead in Brazil earlier today by his wife. Some reports say his death is the result of head trauma. Gatti was 37.

Gatti was an old school hard fighting champion best known for his vicious battles with Ivan Robinson and Mickey Ward but certainly, every one of his fights was an edge of your seat cliff hanger. He only knew one way to fight and left nothing in the ring.

R.I.P. Champ
