For Arturo Gatti, there is life after Micky Ward. That life, however, will always include Ward.
"They'll forever be linked by the unforgettable trilogy they waged between May 2002 and June 2003, with fights I and III named fight of the year by

Italy for a vacant junior welterweight title Jan. 24 in Atlantic City (HBO)."
