Possibly the greatest fight of all time. Lecture on a left hook and body shot …Arturo ‘Thunder’ Gatti versus ‘Irish’ Mickey Ward (1).
This will be academics by pugilism to make the point of “never stop fighting”. Ward did not stop even though he was beaten by the 6th round. This sort of tenacity and sheer will to win is to be admired and emulated as we approach the elections.
These two men fought 2 more times, became best of friends, Ward became Gatti’s trainer and eulogized Gatti at Gatti’s funeral.
