By July 2009 Arturo Gatti’s career as a two-weight boxing champion is long behind him. Then he was a family man – although his relationship with his wife Amanda was the subject of much speculation. So when Arturo was found dead on the floor of an apartment in a Brazilian holiday resort, suspicion soon fell on the woman left behind.
Born April 15, 1972, in Cassino, Italy, Arturo grew up in Latium in the central west of the country. However, as a boy he relocated with his family to Montreal in Quebec, Canada. And when he was a teenager, he moved once more – this time some 375 miles south to Jersey City, New Jersey.
