Mayweather Dominates, Wins Welterweight Title!

Carlos Baldomir bet $25,000 on himself in his fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr., but quickly learned first hand why he was placed as such a big underdog. The much quicker Mayweather dominated the slow and sluggish Baldomir for 12 long rounds, eventually becoming the new WBC Welterweight Champion. Mayweather Jr. showed why he is the best pound for pound boxer in the world, and has set himself up for a possible mega-fight with Oscar De La Hoya.

Mayweather Jr. showed why he is the best pound for pound boxer in the world, and has set himself up for a possible mega-fight with Oscar De La Hoya.

Instead of slugging it out with the Argentinean, Mayweather fought an intelligent fight, using his speed to his defense in avoiding any serious threat throughout the fight. With one punch at a time, Mayweather dominated Baldomir, eventually earning a perfect decision on two of the three judges’ scorecards. After the fight when asked about a possible fight with De La Hoya, Mayweather responded with, “If he wants to, he knows how to reach me. If De La Hoya really wants to fight me, I`ll tax that [backside], too. Oscar said he wants to leave fighting the best.”

Baldomir had once heck of a boxing year. He became WBC Welterweight Champion out of nowhere and came into the fight with the opportunity of knocking off the best boxer in the world. He couldn’t really ever get anything consistently going in the fight, with his lack of speed being a burden on his upset hopes.

A De La Hoya-Mayweather Jr. fight could potentially sell over 1 million pay-per-view buys, but with Mayweather not being the bigger attraction, money, even at $40 million to split, could get in the way of things, like it always seems to do in boxing. Let’s hope this time it doesn’t.
