The conspiracy theories surrounding the death of Arturo Gatti have only grown in number and volume since the three-division boxing champion allegedly killed himself in 2009.

It’s a compelling story 48 Hours Mystery is taking on Saturday in the season premiere (10 p.m. ET/PT, CBS), the “true crime” franchise of CBS’ well-known newsmagazine.

Correspondent Erin Moriarty spent time in Brazil and interviewed many of the personalities involved in the case, among them Gatti’s widow Amanda Rodrigues (in her first television interview); Micky Ward, with whom Gatti had one of the greatest trilogies in boxing history; and Gatti’s brother Joe, who has split with his family over the case.

For those unsatisfied with the conclusions established by the Brazilian authorities — who arrested Rodrigues on suspicion of murder but released her after 18 days — Saturday’s segment is a must-watch.

Rodrigues, 25, is currently facing a civil suit brought by Gatti’s family in Montreal centering on the boxer’s estate.
