    This is Gatti trying to avoid punches.

    He was insanely big at 130 but outside of that was pretty average.

    Patterson, who was a natural 122 and no more than an above average puncher, essentially stopped Gatti in the first round of one of their fights. Buzzed him bad with a right hand and dropped him with a legit body shot that was incorrectly ruled a low blow. In true Gatti fashion he got right back into after about 30 secs even though he could have taken 5 mins.

    Ruelas had him in big trouble more than once..which was a pretty good shootout if you haven't seen it.

    Naz could weigh in at 126 and still slice him to pieces.

    Naz knocks him out.

    Bad style match up for Gatti. You don't want to be getting hit too often by a fighter that carried the power Naz possessed.

    Hamed would absolutely tee off on Gatti, like completely tee off on him. He'd cut him up, beat him up. Gatti's corner would stop the fight.

    Gatti could barely block and evade classical boxer punches, how would he evade a two handed bomber that you can't anticipate? Hamed would get clipped here and there but his career showed someone like Gatti would miss far more than they land.

    Soto had Hamed crapping his pants, Kelly too. Gatti by KO. Hamed is massively overrated.

    Hamed would bust open Gatti's face. It'll end up being more grotesque looking than Margarito's face after the PAC fight..

    Gatti takes it, too big and he catches Hamed and breaks him down.
