Apparent murder, I'm in tears. Watch the video, and even if you weren't blessed to see it the first time live, you will be too.

A lot of Refs(almost all IMO) stop that fight at 2:15 left of the 9th. Thankfully, this one didn't.

Two of the greatest rivals I've ever seen. It was always really classy to see them both as friends sitting in the crowd watching fights after they retired.

Holy crap.

I loved watching him fight.

We've talked about Gatti-Ward more than once here.

That's the 2nd boxer murdered in the month.

Dang, its looking like the wife. 1 year old kid. Tragic.

A good lesson: If you are an abusive, domineering asshole to your wife, make sure you don't get drunk to the point of passing out in her presence, especially after you just had a fight with her.
