Battle over boxer Arturo Gatti’s estate continues

Posted on September 7th, 2011 No Comments

The wife and family of boxer Arturo Gatti, who was found dead at a Brazil resort in 2009, continue to battle over his estate.

Although Gatti’s wife, Amanda Rodrigues, was originally arrested under suspicion that she had a part in her husband’s death, she was later released when Brazilian police claimed that the boxer had actually taken his own life. Gatti’s family, manager, and close friend, however, do not believe he would kill himself.

According to a childhood friend, Rodrigues had a bad temper and had actually physically abused Gatti in the past. The friend testified that Gatti wanted to end things with his wife. However, the couple left their estates to each other in their wills.

Gatti’s family is wishing for his will to be annulled by the court, and his manager has hired a private investigator to look into his death. The private investigator believes that Gatti was murdered, and plans to make his findings public.
