Arturo Gatti, Virgil Hill enter boxing hall
“The Hall of Fame is fitting for a guy who worked so hard and gave his all to the sport,” said Pat Lynch, Gatti’s manager. “It was an honor and a privilege for me to have managed him his entire career.”
For a boxer who grew up in North Dakota, took home an Olympic silver as a middleweight, and won 50 fights as a pro, being selected for the Hall of Fame was his crowning achievement.
“It’s the biggest honor that’s ever been bestowed upon me,” Hill said. “It’s more than winning the five world titles and the Olympic silver medal. It’s the biggest thing _ outside of my children and wife _ that’s ever happened to me. It’s such an honor. I know this would have meant so much to my father (who died a year ago).
This was a big thing for him. You have no idea.”
