I don't know what they are teaching at strip clubs around the world, but apparently in Brazil they must have had a lesson on how to choke to death your world champion boxer husband with a purse strap. Over the weekend, Brazilian police charged Amanda Rodrigues with killing her husband and former world champion boxer Arturo Gatti. I don't watch a lot of boxing, but the way Arturo fought and gave a thousand percent made him one of my favorite boxers.
Apparently the couple were on vacation at a resort in Brazil. They both were extremely jealous people and Arturo didn't like what Amanda chose to wear that night. Arturo was drunk and they got into a fight. According to Amanda she suffered some cuts and bruises as a result of the fight. I can imagine that being in a fight with a boxer was probably a very scary thing. It also was probably not the first time it happened. Anyway, after Arturo fell asleep or passed out, the police said Amanda choked him to death were her purse.
The couple met in a strip club which is where Arturo met most of his girlfriends. After a short dating period they got married. They then broke up and this vacation was kind of like a second honeymoon. The couple had one child together who was safe with relatives.
