    YouTube - Gatti v Ward 1 Round 9

    I recommend watching the entire fight but this is the best round of the war that made an ex of mine a fan. She actually came off the couch several times. She totally understood being a fight fan afterward.

    I really loved the Ward/Gatti trilogy. Now mostly I like to watch Andre Ward. I think he's got class, he's got an entertaining style and I think he can be dominant for a long time.

    Going back and watching Boxing after having been watching mostly MMA stuff after all these years. I am left thinking holly crap that fight would have been stopped in the UFC already but these boxers just keep coming back for more punishment round after round.

    especially alot of these fights that went 15 round.
    In the reverse, in MMA you can't take rounds off and dance the circle, flicking a jab to get a 3 minute rest.

    And then you get incidences where it gets a lot more dangerous, like that guy that died after getting beaten by Gabriel Ruelas

    Edit:The guy was Jimmy Garcia. Ruelas apparently had a war with Gatti too, but I have never actually saw it

    yyyyup. I felt so out of the loop whenever parasailman jokes were made and I had no idea what they were talking about. I stumbled upon this fight while watching ESPN Classics.

    that was the craziest **** ever...but anymore run of the mill for boxing.

    whenever I see the name "Riddick Bowe" I always hear it in my headspace in Lennox Lewis voice as "Riddick FATTY Bowe"








    and **** you ESPN Classics, I bought the PPV makin me feel old.
