Gatti gains revenge
Arturo Gatti gains revenge for last May's loss to Micky Ward

Arturo Gatti gained sweet revenge on Saturday for a previous loss to Micky Ward at Atlantic City.

The 30-year-old American dictated a fiercely-fought bout and won a unanimous decision after 10 gruelling rounds.

The two junior welterweights had staged one of the fights of 2001 last May, when Ward pulled off a points upset.

And, although less spectacular, the rematch was still entertaining.

Gatti put Ward on the canvas in the third round with a thumping overhand right, but he could not apply the finish.

And Ward's remarkable endurance saw him through to the end of a contest that was scored 98-91, 98-91 and 98-90 by the three judges.

Earlier, Audley Harrison had made his US debut on the undercard, polishing off Shawn Robinson in impressive fashion.

Highlights of Saturday's Harrison v Robinson fight will be shown on Sunday Grandstand at 1445 GMT on BBC Two.
