Killed in Brazil book cover

Arturo Gatti was due a long, happy retirement. “Thunder” hung up his gloves in 2007, closing the book on a career that bordered on the mythical. His retirement was celebrated—boxing’s modern gladiator had earned his freedom. A new husband and father, Gatti seemed ready to leave the business of blood behind. Two years later, however, he was found dead in a hotel in Brazil under mysterious circumstances. He was only thirty-seven.

In Killed in Brazil?: The Mysterious Death of Arturo “Thunder” Gatti, Jimmy Tobin uncovers the sensational events surrounding the demise of one of the most beloved fighters of recent memory.

Killed in Brazil? is the fourth in the Hamilcar Noir series. Hamilcar Noir is “Hard Hitting True Crime” that blends boxing and true crime, featuring riveting stories captured in high-quality prose, with cover art inspired by classic pulp novels.
