Mayweather Outclasses Baldomir
Mayweather Outclasses Baldomir
"Pretty Boy" Floyd scored another very impressive win on Saturday night over Carlos Baldomir, shutting the former welterweight champ out on two of the three judges scorecards. The Fight Doctor is here with the recap of that fight, as well as Shannon Briggs' win over Sergei Liakahovich for the WBO Heavyweight title.
Two fight cards in one night isn’t always the best thing for fight fans. It all depends on what you prefer.
In the Welterweight title fight, Floyd Mayweather remained unbeaten and kept his pound for pound reign in another dominant performance. He simply outclassed Carlos Baldomir for twelve rounds.
Speed kills. Mayweather was simply too lightning quick for Baldomir. Floyd was able to land at will and was never in trouble. Every round was a mirror image of the prior round. Floyd would move around, stick two or three shots in Carlos’s face and repeat it over and over again.
The frustration was on the former champ’s face starting at round two. Baldomir realized that there was nothing he has that Floyd couldn’t handle. It was a shutout on 2 of the 3 scorecards. It just appeared as if Mayweather was toying with him. He was outclassed and outworked and it showed in every single second of the fight.
Another dominating performance by the Pretty Boy. Who’s next? He keeps calling out Oscar De La Hoya. We shall see, but I still don’t know if it’ll happen. I sure hope so.
On the Showtime fight card we also saw a new champion crowned. Shannon Briggs scored a 12th round TKO of Sergei Liakhovich. The first 10 rounds were hard o the eyes. It was just a borefest. Two huge men standing there and not throwing punches. Good thing Briggs woke up and started to fight because the judges had their work cut out for them.
Shannon Briggs landed some good shots in the 11th and then finally scored some monster blows in the 12th. He knocked Liakhovich thru the ropes and won by TKO to take home a portion of the Heavyweight crown. Good thing that wasn’t on pay-per-view.
I saw two ends of the fight scale last night. I had the pleasure of seeing the most skillful fighter dominate like he always does in Floyd Mayweather. On the other end, I saw a disaster that is the Heavyweight division.
Will Wladimir Klitschko please clean up the mess that is the Heavyweight division?
I see him unifying it very soon. He starts that journey next Saturday vs Calvin Brock.
More to come soon…
