Did anyone here see this fight.  It was incredible, a real brawl.  The fight could have gone either way, knockdown and point deduc really hurt Ghatti.  I was pulling for Mickey, been following him for years since the HBO documentary.  A great fight in a sport where they are far and few inbetween.

I was hoping someone else had watched it.  I haven't heard anyone here speak of boxing.  I'm sure its because most of them now are jokes and setups.  It was a great fight and should fill the void well after the upcoming Tyson vs. Lewis fiasco on June 8.  I wont pay for that crap though.

Gotti has more heart than all the present heavyweights put together. Not saying Ward doesn't. He seemed to punch himself out and very arm fatigued and came back, too.

I always watch Gotti's fights. He really doesn't have the finesse of a counter puncher, but you know he won't quit.

Excellent. Worth paying for and didn't have to.

Gotti is the Teflon Don.

Gatti is the fighter.

Who won?  I can't believe I forgot it was on.  I'm glad they always replay on Sundays.

That was a hell of a fight it could have gone either way. I thought Gatti had it until he went down. He made an great effort in the last round to make it up.

Wow, that was a great fight!  I can't believe how those two kept coming back after the punishmnent they both took from each other.  That was impressive to say the least.

Agreed, Gatti is the fighter, not Gotti.

Vinnie, Ward won, majority decision.
