2005-01-29 Arturo Gatti w co 5 Jesse James Leija, Boardwalk Hall, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA - WBC. Referee: Earl Brown. Once again Gatti (140) met a challenger who appeared to be several divisions lighter and once again the Canadian stuck to his newly developed boxing skills to make sure of victory. With Leija (140) looking to use a right over the top and Gatti using countering blows and jabs nothing much happened until the start of the fifth when the latter decided to open up. Having dropped Leija for ‘nine’ with a straight right early in the session, Gatti bided his time, exchanging blows with his rival, before whacking in a heavy left to the temple that saw the American counted out on one knee with 1.12 of the fifth remaining.
