Gatti had a great heart. A great left hook and a great chin, unfortunately/fortunately the rest of the package was pretty mediocre.

Fair enough.

Lay off the sarcastic side, and I think you'll make a VERY good addition to the board

‘We watched one episode of Strictly once, obviously before he was offered the chance to do it himself, and he said, “I’d never let my girlfriend do that.”’

Jo-Emma says Joe was very focused on his career and ‘always knew he was the best’ but believed his talent was going unrecognised. It made him very moody and left him grumpy and argumentative, particularly in the build-up to big fights.



Joe began to talk about quitting boxing and becoming a celebrity. He admired Vinnie Jones, who became a successful Hollywood actor after giving up football.
Jo-Emma remembers Joe looking at himself in the mirror, saying: ‘I’m going to be a superstar.’One night, not long before Joe’s final fight at Madison Square Garden in November 2008, Joe had been drinking. ‘He turned to me and said, “You’re my little support girl. After the last fight, I’m doing my own thing. The celeb doesn’t need the support girlfriend any more.”

I think it's worth entering this into the Calzaghe thread of shame too:

****** couldn't resist a dig:

Joe takes us all for dopes

IT really gets up my nose when sportsmen like Joe Calzaghe cite 'boredom' as an excuse for using cocaine.

In the last few years Calzaghe rarely had more than two fights a year, which equates to 20 out of 52 weeks training.
So what did he do to alleviate his 'boredom' in the eight months between fights? It is a stupid argument.

He is a 38-year-old man with two young sons and is talking about managing and promoting fighters.
What kind of an example does he think he is setting?

Calzaghe talks of the 'long days' since his retirement. But he had a career - promoting.
He stopped promoting, though, because his two small hall shows lost money.
I cannot think of many promoters who did not lose cash when they started out.
Most lose money until they are established or produce a box office star - me included. It took me years, not two shows.
