Joey writes: Damn, very few details. I'm with Spike, well I'm sure everyone is, in that we hope it's not true. Would be one of a few boxers that has been killed by some shady means in the last few years

Spike writes: you know when i hear of fighters dying i feel bad, but to be honest with you it dosent really affect me, this one if true is affecting me

mos-def writes: Each report seems more and more strange. Sadly we'll probably never find out what really happened to Gatti

NotoriousL: I don't know what to say. I'm shocked, and terribly saddened. It was an honor to box with Arturo, and be in the gym with him. He was always so personable to everyone, and loved to joke around. He will be sorely missed by so many people. R.I.P
