-Not up to the first fight, but how could it?

-Nice box/slug work from Gatti, and a LITTLE defense. Staying low obviously confused Ward.

-Ward is a tough man. Duh.

-Gatti's body work is about a .8 Ward, which is still much better than most.

-Don't bet against any fighter with Buddy McGirt in his corner. The man could box, and the man can obviously train.

-While I really really like Ward, my score was 100-90 Gatti...

After the first seconds of round 3, the fight was over. That Ward went seven rounds while he was out on his feet is actually pretty scary. Was it of the caliber of the first fight: No, but then again, the first fight was fight of the century. Most years, this second fight would be fight of the year candidate. But, for violence sake, someone should put a compilation of Rounds 9 and 10 from fight 1 together with Round 3 of fight 2.

I want you to know, I agree with everything I've just said.

Gatti-Ward 1 is the reason I love boxing. Gatti-Ward II (not the fight, just the fact it happened) is why I hate boxing.

Well, now that it's 1-1. expect Gatti/Ward III.

Moe: regardless of any other reason why I am glad this fight happened, above all is the fact that IIRC each guy made $1.5 million for this fight. After what they gave to everyone, and knowing how much a slug like Tyson has made in his career, and coming on the heels of Johnny Tapia's first ever million dollar purse, I'm glad they had this fight. Hopefully Mickey Ward is set for life with this purse, and will go off to let the ringing in his head subside.
