Cintron, Gomez victorious! Gatti Retires!

Atlantic City, NJ (July 14th) – Kermit Cintron needed just over one round to defeat Walter Dario Matthysse. Matthysse went down after a vicious combination by Kermit Cintron who retained his IBF welterweight title. Matthysse was knocked down in the first round and again early in the second round. 29-seconds into the second round Cintron’s combination of a left uppercut and then a hard right was all that Matthysse could take. Cintron won his fourth straight bout since his 2005 loss to Antonio Margarito. Cintron, now 28-1, looks to be on a real roll as of late.
– “The Contender” proved to be just that on Saturday night in Atlantic City. Alfonso Gomez dominated an aging Arturo “Thunder” Gatti, who as always stood in the ring and showed a tremendous amount of courage although easily outclassed and outmatched. After enduring a six round beating, Gatti couldn’t make it through the seventh round as he was knocked out midway through the seventh round. After the bout, a bloodied Gatti confirmed his retirement in an HBO interview. Gomez, now 17-3-2, of reality television fame shows that he may have a promising future. Gomez, who says he once idolized Arturo Gatti, easily defeated Gatti in a slaughter. After the bout, Gatti announced his retirement with a career record of 40-9.
