Arturo Gatti's thrilling career comes to an end against unlikely foe Alfonso Gomez of The Contender. Gomez takes Gatti to school for six rounds, consistently beating him to the punch. In the seventh round, he batters Gatti into the ropes with a volley of shots, finally sending him down and splitting his lip wide open with a right hand that prompts New Jersey State Athletic Commissioner Larry Hazzard to jump into the ring and stop the fight. Beaten down for the last time, Gatti announces his retirement before leaving the arena.
