Tacoma, WA - HBO’s late-night boxing series heats up with an exciting junior middleweight bout when HBO Boxing After Dark: Vernon Forrest vs. Carlos Baldomir is presented Saturday, July 28 at 10:15 PM (ET/PT) from the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Wash., exclusively on HBO.
In a battle of former welterweight champions, Carlos Baldomir (43-10-6, 13 KOs) of Santa Fe, Argentina takes on Atlanta’s Vernon Forrest (38-2, 28 KOs) in a scheduled 12-round event. Baldomir, a former 147-pound titleholder, returns to the ring after three consecutive marquee matchups, which produced two wins (over Zab Judah and Arturo Gatti) and one loss (to Floyd Mayweather). The always aggressive Baldomir suffered his first loss in eight years when Mayweather snapped his winning streak in Las Vegas last November.
Baldomir’s opponent in this 154-pound showdown is Vernon Forrest, who’s been on a winning streak of his own since returning to the ring after a two-year absence. Forrest has been defeated by only one man – Ricardo Mayorga – in his last 15 years as a professional, and hopes to reestablish himself as a title contender in this highly competitive division.
