I wont begrudge Gatti making a buck doing this, he gave us his all and some of the best fights we've ever seen, more power to him.

Legend !!

Yeah but c'mon, its a spectacle...

I would have much rather seen him get invloved with promoting or some other aspect of the sport. Pro's vs Joe's though? Thats like a slap in the face....

It's not that big of a deal. He's always been the people's champ and now he's gonna be on a show they all watch. Nothing wrong with that. And he's doing good by the way. I know it's against amateurs and beginners but if he can make people being more interested in boxing then it's all good. Hell even Roy Jones was on that show.

Very true ,you can blame or critize the man for wanting to do something ,I'm sure they offered him good money so why not take it, you can live your life worrying , about what people are gonna say ,there's allways gonna be jerks ,my-self included who are gonna talk trash, is not like he's gonna star in porno videos,and even if he was shoot,I wish it was me :laugh:

And what is Boxing if not a spectacle ,Two guys trying to beat each other senseless, I think your're being a little harsh on the man, there's nothing degrating about making a living , Mr gatti has paid his dues and then some. Is not like he's putting on a skirt and make-up,that I would consider degrating , he's gonna be carrying a couple of guys trying to prove their manhood and try to have a good time while doing it, I say more power to him, hopefully that will lead to some small movie parts and other opportunities, if anyone deserves it Arturo does.....:)

If he makes a decent sum of money from it then I don't see anything wrong with that. I won't look at him any differently. same was the case with Roy Jones doing it. The only thing I don't wanna see is Gatti getting his ass beat by a Joe.:laugh:

Its good to see Arturo getting something back from the sport he's gave so much to.

Even in retirement he still wants to entertain his fans. (BRAVO)

Yeah he hasn't gone the De La Hoya route quite yet. :laugh:

While I don't really like the idea of him doing this all that much I can't really blame him. I mean when you really think about it, what else is he going to do right now for money?

Well, theres no question the man has earned his paydays. I would dare suggest he doesnt. Its just gonna be very unusual to see him in this position. Movies or announcing or something sure, but Pro vs Joes...eh...

Wouldn't be surprised to see him in a movie one day. Did everyone spotted Roy Jones in "matrix reloaded"?

jones had a cameo in the video game "enter the matrix" too.

as far as gatti, i can see him playing a supporting mafiaoso type character. you know the muscle behind some underboss or something

I can see it from both sides and have no problem with either. I just wish Arturro luck in his future.
Well put, I'm sure this sting ,will lead to other good things for Arturo, he more than sacrified his phisicality, for our entertainment, its time for him to have fun ,he reminds me of a young Beto Antofuermo.
they both have rugged good looks.....
I"M probably gonna regret saying that:eek:
