Mayweather - Baldomir Prediction

By JE Grant

Of course there is not supposed to be a real contest that occurs when Floyd Mayweather meets the champion Carlos Baldomir. There's little doubt that Floyd's consumate skills, almost impenetrable defense, and uber confidence born of a training regime second to none make him the runaway favorite. Just as clearly Baldomir was to have no chance at Zab Judah. He was also supposed to be a victim to Arturo Gatti who many thought would get the last laugh in capturing the true world championship ahead of Mayweather. Neither of his wins in those bouts was expected. However, don't expect the unexpected on this night. The sterling brilliance of Mayweather is the real thing. He will out-speed, out-punch, out-everything Baldomir. The champion Baldomir is not a phony and is not to be trifled with --- and despite his cocky flair, the most complete professional in the game today, Mayweather, won't take anything for granted. Baldomir is gritty and comes to win. His efforts will lead to a rapid-fire pounding and a brutal finish.

Mayweather by KO in 9.

I predicted a semi-easy decision victory (8-4/9-3) but we were both basically correct.

Question: What often happens when you put an A+ level guy against a good solid B level one?

Answer: He kind of makes him LOOK like a rank jackass. Like a run-of-the-mill journeymen.

However, this was NOT a match-race with Secretariat and Donkey. It only gave the 'illusion' of such. 'Secretariat' did indeed win by many lengths, but it was against a good honest grade 2 stakes winner.

Simply put - Baldomir is good, Mayweather...Is GREAT.
