In a year wracked by countless deaths of public figures, boxing has tragically lost one of it's all-time warriors as former two-weight world champion Arturo Gatti has died in Brazil.
Authorities found the body of 37 year old New Jersey resident Gatti in a vacation apartment he shared with his 23 year old wife, Amanda Rodrigues, and the couple's one year old son.
Gatti and Rodrigues had reportedly gone to the northeastern Brazilian resort of Porto de Galinhas to enjoy a second honeymoon.
Brazilian authorities have announced that Gatti may have been strangled with the strap of a handbag and are questioning Rodrigues, who has denied any involvement in harming Gatti, on the matter.
SaddoBoxing joins the boxing world in mourning the passing of Arturo Gatti and wishes to extend their deepest sympathies to his family.
A tribute article is forthcoming.
