SAO PAULO -- Brazilian authorities detained the wife of former boxing champion Arturo Gatti as a suspect on Sunday following his death at a posh seaside tourist resort in Brazil.

Police said 23-year-old Amanda Rodrigues was taken into custody after contradictions in her interrogation. The Canadian boxer's body was found early Saturday in a hotel room at the Porto de Galinhas resort in northeastern Brazil.

The former junior welterweight champion from Montreal was apparently strangled with the strap of a purse, which was found at the scene with blood stains, said Milena Saraiva, a spokeswoman for the Pernambuco state civil police. She told The Associated Press that Gatti also sustained a head injury.


I'm not a huge boxing fan, but this guy was a damn good fighter, I definitely watched some of his bouts. Another athlete/celebrity to bite the dust, this summer has been just horrible in that regard.

Only 37, too. RIP. Sad

Gatti along with Diego Corrales(who also passed) were the two best action boxers for their generation.
