Carlos Baldomir's recent impressive victories over Zab Judah and Arturo Gatti meant nothing last night at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas as the Argentine's opponent this time out was Floyd Mayweather Jr, who lived up to his reputation of being the pound for pound best fighter in boxing today and drubbed the reigning WBC Champion.
During the bout, Mayweather was the conductor and Baldomir the orchestra, such was the manner in which "Little Floyd" toyed with the South American. The speed differential played out in not only offense but defense as well as Baldomir was picked apart, round after round, while rarely finding Mayweather with a glove.
After twelve rounds, the one sided display was finally over with Mayweather winning by wide margins of 120-108 (twice) and 118-110.
With such a dominating victory over Carlos Baldomir, Floyd Mayweather has gotten that much closer to a contest with Oscar De La Hoya but "The Golden Boy" represents a far more difficult challenge than the vanquished ex-WBC Welterweight Champion.
