Arturo Gatti retained his WBC super-lightweight title with a fifth-round stoppage of 'Jesse' James Leija in Atlantic City.
 

The victory puts Gatti in line for a mouthwatering fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr.

After a fine boxing performance, rather than his trademark brawling, Gatti pounced 30 seconds into round five, knocking Leija down with a right-hand shot.

Leija got back up but it only delayed the inevitable.

A left hook sent him down again and referee Earl Brown counted him out with 72 seconds of the round remaining.

Leija, 38, is now set to retire.
