Arturo Gatti Marathon


Friday on Fight Network


NEW YORK/TORONTO (Dec. 23, 2014) - Fight Network is going to celebrate Boxing Day in style this Friday (Dec. 26), airing six fights featuring the late, great Arturo "Thunder" Gatti (40-9, 31 KOs) from 9 a.m. ET -- 9 p.m. ET.

Gatti was arguably boxing's most popular, exciting fighter from his professional debut in 1991 until his retirement in 2007. He had an unearthly knack for sensational comebacks during a fight, as well as for enduring and dishing out tremendous pain.

The native of Italy lived in Montreal and Jersey City (NJ) during his colorful career until his untimely death in 2009. Known by boxing many fans as a "Human Highlight Film" in the ring, he was posthumously induted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame (IBHOF) in 2012.

Fight Network is a 24/7 television channel dedicated to complete coverage of combat sports. It airs programs focused on the entire scope of the combat sports genre, including live fights and up-to-the-minute news and analysis for boxing, mixed martial arts, kickboxing, professional wrestling, traditional martial arts, fight news, as well as fight-themed drama series, documentaries and feature films.

Below find the Arturo Gatti Marathon programming schedule for this Friday on Fight Network:

he was a straight brawler his face looked like leather nose all crooked but he always kept the fans coming back. his talent was pleasing the crowd. floyd is pisses off fans and sucks in the ring style wise. how he pulls ppvs the way he does is crazy.
