5_stars_allthebestfights Review: 2002-05-18, Arturo Gatti vs Micky Ward 1, has been the Ring Magazine fight of the year of 2002, a real boxing war between two very different fighters. Arturo Gatti, that was younger than 7 years, was one of the most beautiful boxers to see for his technique, while Micky Ward was a boxer that wanted to use his physical strength and had a jaw of iron. Someone has labeled Micky Ward vs Arturo Gatti 1 as “The Fight of the Century” and therefore we understand why after this fight they will face in two other fighting (Gatti vs Ward 2 six months later, and Gatti vs Ward 3 in 2003). Watch the video!

    This fight should be at the top of the list. Best fight ever! Easily fight of the decade maybe even the last 20-30 years.

  • Elijah Brown

    Hellacious battle, this totally reminds me of the demarco vs basillio fight. Just two warriors trading shots, wham bam dont give a damn. a 5 star fight indeed.

  • David Carriere

    They left it all in the ring that night and were probably not the same fighter either . RIP Arturo !

  • David Carriere

    The class the showed is what I wish we could see more of . I like many just wish Arturo was still with us . I hope Ward is well and I’d like to wish Everyone and their Families a Happy Thanksgiving .
