The smiling assassin who was one of the most likable people in the entire sport. Gatti was taken from us far too soon.

Giving every ounce of everything he ever had for his supporters, Gatti Sr. was a fan-friendly fighter made for TV.

His life was tragically cut short. The events have never really made any sense. Losing Gatti certainly made boxing a less happy place.

Gatti Jr. promises to gives fans another chapter of the family story and it already building a repertoire of clips on his social media.
