UNBEATEN Floyd Mayweather vowed to “punish” Arturo Gatti and that’s just what he did, on this day (June 25) in 2005. Gatti pulled out at the end of the sixth, following a brutal beating.

“He was just too fast,” moaned Gatti, whose left eye was slammed shut while losing his WBC light-welterweight title.

Gatti, the sport’s “ultimate warrior”, was completely outclassed. “Pretty Boy Floyd” never looked prettier.
