Arturo Gatti versus John Duddy: This fight should happen this year!

09.03.07 - By Dave Domenico: It was reported that former champion and icon of boxing Arturo Gatti is planning to fight again this year. Last I heard an opponent was still to be named for Gatti in his comeback. I remember seeing “Irish” John Duddy fighting Yuyi boy Campas a while back. That was a great fight and Duddy looked very exciting in that brawl. At the end of the fight, Duddy was the battered victor. Seeing him in action reminded me of another fighter. But which one?

That’s right Arturo Gatti! Both men have that blood and guts style, and I thought to my self, Wow! These two should fight! It would be a super event, guaranteed. Boxing could use a fight like that these days. This fight has the potential to capture the Gatti versus Ward legacy. I for one think it would be a great fight, and should be made for later in the year. Any comments?
