History will repeat itself

We all saw what happened to Manfredo when he went up against a world class fighter. I would expect to see the same result in this match. You can't even give Gomez a puncher's chance, because Gatti won't go down.

Welcome to the board.

Gatti's chin isnt as good as the old days. Baldomir who wasnt regarded as a puncher knocked him out

You can't compare todays Gatti to Calzaghe. Gatti is way past his prime. Gomez has a chance tonight. The Gatti of old would kill Gomez though.

You couldn't have been more wrong. Gomez by 7th Round Ko in one of the most one sided fights I've seen in a while. Awesome display.

Was pulling for Gatti but it just wasn't there. Age does matter. And Gatti has provided fight fans with an action-packed career, so he can be proud of that.

As for Gomez, let him enjoy this now. He'll soon face an opponent, one who's under 35, who'll take him to school.
