2009: Italian-Canadian boxer Arturo Gatti, who won world championships designated by two different boxing boards in two different weight classes, is found dead in a hotel room in Ipojuca, Brazil, at age 37. Gatti, an inductee of the International Boxing Hall of Fame, compiled a career record of 40 wins (31 by knockout) and nine losses. The Brazilian authorities initially ruled Gatti's death a homicide, with his widow initially arrested in connection with his death, but after further studies ruled it was a suicide.
