Does Gatti Have a Chance Against Mayweather?
21.06.05 - By Goran Dragosavac: If I would be absolutely certain that Floyd Mayweather will win the fight against Arthuro Gatti on Saturday night, I wouldn’t think about the fight, I wouldn’t write about it, and certainly wouldn’t bother to watch it. Make no mistake, Mayweather is technically one of the best boxers, not only in his generation, but one of the best that ever entered the ring.. So far, his defensive and offensive abilities are pure magic; His switch from inside to outside and back - is beyond – anything I have ever seen in the ring. So, against a boxer of such a calibre, any other boxer would have steep slope to climb, and so will Arturo Gatti.

However, even though I cannot see Gatti outboxing Mayweather, ever – I could well imagine the possibility of him pulling an upset. Gatti does have decent power, and we have seen that Gatti under the brilliant coaching of Buddy McGirt, is a completely different boxer than he was previously. Mayweather is right claiming that boxers he fought are far better than Gatti’s opponents, but the way Gatti has disposed of Leonard Dorin and Jesse James Leija, has given him the right to believe in himself and that he can pull this one off.
