- Gatti had requested several voluntary defenses from the WBC before finally agreeing to fight Floyd Mayweather.
- The fight between the two fighters was billed as a superfight.
- It would be the first time that Floyd mayweather headlined a PPV event. Before the fight there was plenty of trash talk between the two fighters and Floyd had repeatedly referred to gatti as a "C" fighter.
- When it came to fight time, Mayweather's handspeed was simply overwhelming as he landed three and four punch combinations at will.
- Gatti was down in the first round and Gatti took a one-sided beating for six rounds before his cornerman, Buddy McGirt, decided to stop it after the 6th round.
