  • This bout had been in the making for over a year and a half. Gatti and Mayweather were both stars in their respective weight classes and after Gatti won the WBC title in January 2004 Mayweather was the #1 ranked WBC contender.
  • Gatti had requested several voluntary defenses from the WBC before finally agreeing to fight Mayweather.
  • The fight between the two fighters was billed as a "superfight".
  • It would be the first time that 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 hand speed was simply overwhelming as he landed three and four punch combinations at will.
  • Gatti was down in the first round and took a vicious one-sided beating for the next five rounds before his cornerman, James (Buddy) McGirt, decided to stop it after the 6th round.
  • Before the fight, HBO analyst Max Kellerman called it the biggest pay-per-view mismatch since Lennox Lewis vs. Mike Tyson.
