Name: WARD, MICKEY TEAM SWEAT SUIT (ISSUED FOR FIRST GATTI FIGHT)
History: On May 18, 2002, Arturo Gatti squared off against Micky Ward in one of the greatest fights that boxing fans had any right to hope for. Neither man was a technical wizard by any means, but the fact that they were so hittable made their contest every bit as dramatic in real life as it looked on paper. The judges awarded the victory to Ward by a narrow decision, but it really didnít matter whom the judges declared as the winner; the fight was so great that it transcended the opinions of three men ringside and was destined to be a trilogy. It was a classic fight at a time when the sport needed it most; it spoke to the best aspects of the sport, and it was, and always will be, a defining fight for both of those great men. Arturo Gatti vs. Micky Ward: Fight of the Year for 2002. Nothing more needs to be said. Offered here is a TEAM WARD custom sweat suit which was issued for the fight by Ward promoter Lou Dibella. Purchased directly from Lou Dibella.
