    2 battle hardened warriors with lots of heart and an unbreakable will. Both have been involved in many memorable FOTY bouts. How does this blood curdling brawl go and who do you think will stop the other? Can Gatti overpower Salido or would Salido’s nonstop pressure and rough house tactics overwhelm Gatti?

    Rubber Glove Sandwich and Jel like this.

    Damn, no thoughts on this match up? God knows how brutal this fight could have been. Would have been interesting to see how their styles collide. Gatti was no stranger to fighting dirty or blowing up in weight like Salido.

    I'd expect Gatti to take Salido out late. It would he an unbelievable fight beforehand.

    Yeah, I think Gatti takes this in a war of attrition. He was bigger and punched harder.

    I’ve got Salido. Gatti wouldn’t be able to hang with Lomachenko, Guerrero and Marquez.

    No idea who wins but I would love to see this fight. Maybe a top 10 fantasy match up for me.
