The fact that Mayweather obliterated Gatti so easily has less to do with Gatti's lack of ability, in my opinion, and much much more to do with the fact with just how great Mayweather really was.
To be fair, I didn't expect Mayweather to be so cruel to him throughout the bout. It was obvious that Mayweather could have ko'd Gatti but he didn't. He wanted to humiliate him, as he did. Gatti knew he didn't deserve to be in there with the likes of Mayweather but instead he bulked up his resume as they do with young prospects until he got a payday.
Glad he enjoyed some of that payday until his untimely demise. RIP AG.
