    Yeah.

    That's what makes Gatti so special, he turned himself from a PUNCHER to a BOXER who can punch.

    Like, Gatti/Leija (I know that's spelled wrong) was absolutely TEXTBOOK excellent boxing, things like "almost land right cross twice, shake right hand, pop the jab" distractions to the BEEEYOOOOOTIIFUL first knockdown of "jab, jab, lay jab hand in his face, here comes the CROSS".

    Then, when he had him scared and hurt, Gatti BROUGHT IT ON, like old times. Flurry, flurry, flurry HULK SMASH kinda boxing.

    It was AWESOME.

    And I'm on record saying that I don't actually like seeing people get hit and I hate the inherent violence in boxing. It was the perfection of tactic and technique that inspired me.

    I'd probably like him more if he talked less.

    Gatti's good but he's no Bernard Hopkins. Bernard Hopkins, is probably the best pound for pound fighter right now. Constantly changing his style/training for his opponent. He's in better shape than most in his weight class, he could probably go for 20 - 30 rounds. (That's just hearsay, one of the people at the gym where I train, claimed to have watched Bernard Hopkins train, and said that he went 20 rounds sparring with multiple guys in rotation.) Gatti changed his style because he got too old to keep up the style that got him where he is. That's not a bad thing, If Roy Jones Jr. did that he'd still be the Light Heavyweight champion. But what I love about Gatti is that he's a smart fighter, he dropped Dorin ,in the 2nd round I think, with a beautifully setup body shot. He threw a flurry of punches to the head to get him to raise his hands then pow left to the body, down goes Dorin. So basically I wanted to reaffirm that Gatti's great but Bernard Hopkins is better, and profess my love of smart fighters.

    I've never cared much for fighters who hype too much, talk too much.

    And yes, Hopkins is something to behold.

    Hopkins best pound for pound? He is good, but there is way too much hype about him being put up their with the greats, like Sugar Ray Leonard.

    Also, Gatti beating Leija is nothing special. Leija isn't the type of fighter that could stop Gatti. I already knew the outcome of the fight.

    Leija has no power which puts him at a big disadvantage. I was surprised that Gatti put that guy down in the 2nd round with that body shot.

    Anyways, Gatti is good, but he is far from being the most technical fighter.
    I'll make one when I can find one I like.

    You can thank his current trainer, can't think of his name off hand but was he was a slick fighter in the 80's...

    Yes, I agree he sharpened himself up a lot he has to he leeds to easy. Saw the Gatti Leija fight Leija had better days, and that helped gatti look good, but to me the man right now even though he;'s a bout to quit is Kosta Tszyu

    I admire him for realising he needed to change his style. He probably extended his career about 5-8 years doing this.

    true because he probably lost three to four fighting Ward.

    Give it up to Ward to he was 36 yrs. old in their last fight.
