Gatti and Forrest: Vaya Con Dios

A lot has been happening in the world of boxing recently. There are tears and some cheers, definitely. Read on.

The Frustrated Sports Analyst , along with other boxing enthusiasts, mourns the untimely deaths of boxing legends Arturo Gatti and Vernon Forrest. Both men have given the sport their best and certainly the fans appreciated what they have done. Gatti was one of those types of fighters who never backed down despite strong opposition. In the face of a more skilled and more technically sound opponent, he remained the aggressor, always pushing forward, always putting on the pressure.

Forrest was a legend right from the start. He was the kind of a fighter that really gives his all every time he laced his gloves. Best remembered for his bouts against Shane Mosley, Forrest will forever be etched in the annals of boxing’s history.

Rest in peace, Gatti and Forrest.
