We are so used to seeing Arturo Gatti (Jesery City, NJ) taking part in thrilling fights with "Irish" Mickey Ward, that we tend to expect the same no matter who he is fighting.
Leonard Dorin (Montreal, Canada by way of Constantza, Romania) was supposed to put up such a fight that many were saying this would be a candidate for Fight of the Year but Gatti went out and knocked Dorin out in less than 2 rounds successfully defending his WBC Light Welterweight title.
Gatti said "I've been lifting a lot of weights. I put everything into that shot. When he went down, I knew he wasn't getting up." Gatti's trainer, Buddy McGirt, has turned Gatti, 38-6 (29), back into the boxer he once was.
