Gatti/Ward III is just a few short nights away. I’m torn on this one. I like both fighters. Gatti is such an animal that it’s impossible not to admire and respect him. Ward is just as sick and he’s also a local fighter. His hometown of Lowell, MA isn’t far from mine. As anyone that saw it knows, the first fight was a brutal masterpiece. Simply amazing. Gatti won relatively easily in the rematch. I don’t think these guys have enough left in them to recreate the first fight (but, then again, that’s a one in a million type fight), but I still expect it to be entertaining. After all, they’re both premiere action fighters. It’s also Ward’s last fight. He’ll want to end his career on a high note and he’s too ballsy to run and hide in order to avoid trouble. He’ll brawl. Arturo obviously will too. I can’t wait.
And I’m going with Gatti by decision.
