Arturo Gatti vs Floyd Mayweather
So. Who's watching the fight on Saturday (HBO)? Mayweather is a terrible ****-talker so you know who I'm rooting for.. Gatti is also a Piasano like myself so that might have something to do with it.

It should be a pretty good fight, hopefully I will remember to watch it. They both can hammer.

Don't forget Mayweather's hands are extremely brittle and everytime he tries to slug it out with someone he breaks his hands. Gatti's been hit with punches way harder than anything Mayweather can throw so if Mayweather lets Gatti turn it into a slugfest, he's ****ed. It'll be a good fight but I'd rather see one more Gatti - Ward fight. Gatti by KO in 7.

Gatti is real dangerous. He's one of the few fighters I like to watch. When he fights you know you're gonna see a good fight. Don't expect this guy to end the fight sitting on the stool like Mike Tyson.

Good to see "bro's" interested in this fight.
I'm a big Gatti fan and hater of Floyd Mayweather...heart tells me Gatti, head tells me Mayweather. I believe that whichever way it goes it is going to be an easy night for one of these two guys. Either Gatti is going to blow himaway with power and size or Mayweather is going to be able to deal with that.

Mayweather easily had the second round..
06-25-2005 11:37 PM
Third round probably went to Mayweather too.. Not as drastic as round two...
06-25-2005 11:42 PM
Gatti hasn't really landed anything yet.. This one is almost over.. Round four goes to Mayweather.. Mayweather has enough time to relax during some of each round...
06-25-2005 11:45 PM
Another round for Mayweather...
06-25-2005 11:49 PM
Mayweather is physically going to kill Gatti. They need to stop this fight...
06-25-2005 11:50 PM
The fight is over.. Mayweather steamrolled over Gatti...
06-25-2005 11:51 PM
I think Gatti got one decent shot in the whole fight.. Mayweather is that damn good...

Damn. I guess i was wrong about Gatti and Mayweather. Who do you think is next for Mayweather? Zab Judah (I'd love to see this one)? Diego Corrales?

Mayweather has already crushed Corrales; put him down 5 times (at 130 I think). Next might be Miguel Cotto since he can pull some hispanic PPV numbers or maybe Ricky Hatton and fight him across the water for some extra cash.

he might be the best pure boxer out there right now. His defense is so good and he can hit at 140. He is my #2 PFP behind Hopkins. The kid has basically been raised by a boxing family, he has had gloves on since he came out of womb and not to mention he is blessed with incredible speed and ability. I don't see anyone at that weight right now that could beat him. Hatton? too slow. Tzysu too slow. Judah and Cotto both have better chances, but in big fights Mayweather always impresses.

Mayweather is the best lb. for lb. boxer out there today. You could make a case for Hopkins and that'd be fair. Zab Judah, if he shows up, is probably as good as it gets, but Mayweather is nearly in a class by himself. He's not the classiest guy with that big mouth, but he backs it up and can handle his business. He's a defensive wizard, is blazing fast, and has enough on his punches to knock most anybody to the canvas.
He's also SMART when he's in the ring, something many boxers are not. That's one thing that separates Hopkins as well. Hopkins is not the most talented boxer on the planet, but he's so intelligent and prepares so well that he knows every weakness in his opponent and he knows how he can exploit them.
There are fights Mayweather could struggle with, but Gatti wasn't one of them. You have to be a crafty, intelligent, analytical boxer to step into the ring with PBF. You can't be a swinger with a good jaw... he'll eat you up.
