5_stars_allthebestfights Review: 2001-03-24, Oscar De La Hoya vs Arturo Gatti, for us, was the fight of the year of 2001. De La Hoya, nine months before, had lost against Shane Mosley and absolutely needed a win to move closer to a world title, Gatti, instead, did not suffer any loss in the two previous years. Oscar De La Hoya and Arturo Gatti were two boxers very technical and spectacular that could not give us an exciting fight. Watch the video!

    This fight is proof of how a fighter can wither away. Gatti was the modern day rocky, great fighter. Oscar was just too much for him.

    Hum I remember seeing that fight way back, not sure it deserves 5 stars. Anyway, it was a very intriguing matchup for sure, Gatti was surprisingly good in defeat
