Mayweather - Baldomir
By Curtis McCormick
After months of speculation that the welterweight Floyd Mayweather to face IBF champion different opponents in a series of weights, the agreements were signed in his hand quickly from Michigan square off the WBC champion, Carlos Baldomir in a unification clash between the numbers on November 4. On paper, this competition is the biggest challenge of his career is human, but it remains to be seen whether the actual match itself in which to live, that the assumptions.
Baldomir, 09/06/43 (13), is the first natural welterweight Mayweather has had the opportunity to share the tires, and an increase in Argentina specialized in the kind of relentless forward pressure and Jose Luis Castillo used to good effect in first fight against "Pretty Boy".
Mayweather, 36-0 (24), was a dazzling fast, and the foot, hand and reflex as a super featherweight and has taken this interest in travel to Welter. This speed is exponentially magnified boxing skills that accompanies it as a long list of victories Mayweather opponents can testify.
Early in his career, Mayweather has been close to untouchable, damn near perfect. But Emanuel Augustus was the first to tarnish that invincibility, put more leather on Floyd in a losing effort than anyone before, when the two met at 134 pounds in October 2000.
Mayweather has no fear against Jose Luis Castillo, for the first time in April 2002, which sets the pattern of its future difficult fight when Mayweather stepped up in weight that was difficult for her first trip to the higher weight class.
It was evident against Castle as you approach the light and back to light welterweight against DeMarcus Corley in 2004. This mold was broken when Mayweather went up to welterweight, but it is difficult to place in their fight against Sharmba Mitchell by Mitchell last November, as it was far beyond his prime.
Zab Judah, Mayweather has produced a real welterweight at the start of four months ago, and the faithful, was a fantastic talent, multi-weight champion stretched their difficulties in the early stages of the match.
Baldomir can press their advantages in weight and more power to beat Mayweather natural gifts? Augusto Castillo, Corley and Judah his success against Floyd for showing up and throwing lots of leather and all that was closer to Castillo, of course, none was able to beat Mayweather.
Baldomir will certainly try to pressure on the champion boxer, and is trying to break Mayweather as he did successfully against Gatti and Judah, to a lesser extent, but 35 years and a long career, he can not have the courage to stay in that Floyd is likely to set in Argentina, wants to break the confidence of the storm counterpunches strong.

After a whirlwind press tour that brought his wife and four children in New York and Los Angeles, Baldomir, who is promoted by Sycuan Ringside Promotions, is ready to go to training.
The tour began at Tavern on the Green in New York September 5, with the initial press conference to announce Baldomir mega-fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr. Nov. 4 at the Mandalay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas and live on HBO Pay -Per-View. A day later, on September 6, was Baldomir and Arnie Morton's Steakhouse at the company in Beverly Hills, California, to announce the West Coast.
"I'm always happy to New York City, it brings good memories," said Baldomir, Zab Judah, who won January 7, 2006, at Madison Square Garden in New York, the 12-round decision to become the World Boxing Council and the right-welterweight champion. "Fight Judah put me on the map. 'Was good that we announced this next fight here where it all began, because this is a win, which means that everyone knows who I am."
A prohibitive underdog in Las Vegas, Baldomir is the task.
"I understand that this is the most important game in my life," said Baldomir. "But here's the thing: It will not be the most difficult Mayweather is skilled and very fast, but it will not and trade with me he wants to run My confidence is in this fight is that it is ... by weight and I'm here. It will not hurt me inside. "
Vice President Scott Woodworth Sycuan Ringside Promotions, joined Baldomir in New York and Los Angeles to reflect on the journey so far boxing "Cinderella Man."
"Chicago in 2005, when Carlos Miguel Rodriguez wins, Mayweather began to ask," Woodworth said. "When you know how far Carlos has come - from the sale of rags on the street in his hometown of Santa Fe, Argentina, recognized as the fight against the pound-for-pound champion with HBO Pay-Per-View - discovers that he is truly a 'Cinderella Man'. "
After the press conference in New York jumped camps to fight at a time and most people involved in the fight for a plane to Los Angeles to do it again.
"I worry for this fight to happen," said Baldomir. "We're all flying around announcing this and I can not wait to climb into the ring and start exchanging blows. Mayweather is pound for pound champion, but I'm on top of our weight class and will not change on November 4. Not only do I think I will win this battle, do not be surprised if he knocked out. No one hit as hard as I go. It is better to be prepared. "
The president of Sycuan Ringside Promotions, Glenn Quiroga, Baldomir has joined the team in Los Angeles and spoke of Atlantic City, New Jersey, where Baldomir scored ninth assault to stop Arturo Gatti July 22, 2006.
"Going into the fight Gatti, everyone says that the fight Judah was a fluke, that Zab overlooked our guys," said Quiroga. "Arturo Gatti Ask how much it was a fluke. And after this fight people said we won because Gatti was getting old. So now, what will the excuse after the Mayweather fight? The no-sayers can start brainstorming their excuses now, because our guy is ahead. "
After finishing the press conference in Los Angeles, Baldomir was able to relax and enjoy some time with his family from Argentina to be with the champion on the tour.
"This is what it's all about," said Baldomir. "Never in my wildest dreams thought I would be here in Los Angeles as a nice place, feeding my children steaks. But my life has certainly got a nice path. I am very grateful for everything we have. Every time I need motivation to keep me going, I just support my family. "
Baldomir is the favorite for "Fighter of the Year" for 2006. A victory over Mayweather may just seal the honor.
Mayweather vs Baldomir Robbie Peden boxing card
By James Slater
When last seen in a boxing ring, Australian super featherweight Robbie Peden was given a boxing lesson by his former employer. Challenge for the man who once served as chief sparring in a world title fight he challenged the two men, Robbie was also noted by the great Mexican Marco Antonio Barrera. As such, it has not only failed to raise WBC 130 lbs Marco, also lost his IBF world honors.
That was in September last year at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Peden is now ready to give the go. Returning to Las Vegas more this time Mandalay Bay, 32, meets the youngest Wes "Wicked" Ferguson on November 4, in a match held to the light.
Boxing at the huge Mayweather-Baldimor Bill, Robbie, who won his world featherweight title by defeating the super safer Nate Campbell in February 2005, aims to get his career back on track with an impressive victory. Opposing him will be the Ferguson twenty years, a native of Flint, Michigan, USA. Trained by Roger Mayweather fact, Wes will not be smooth. In fact, only lost one of his sixteen fights. So what is the likely outcome?
Peden turns 33 a few days after the battle takes place, while Ferguson will be just 21 years later this month. Youth may be served and then. But even 33 is certainly an advanced age for the super featherweight, Peden has not bothered so much through it, ten years of boxing career.
The only game where Robbie has been subject to harsh treatment was his only defeat coming schedule within the hands of the very brilliant Juan Manuel Marquez in 2002. So assuming he does not go back further than expected (Robbie took a fair go in the last few minutes with Barrera) Peden should be able to get the win. However, the young man who seeks to prevent sure.
With a world championship is its own purpose, time stopped Ferguson will appreciate the opportunity to shine as a mass spectacle. It's not a big puncher (only three men stopped him winning 14:00), Wes is a smarter fighter, as you might expect, trained fighter Mayweather. But then, Peden is no banger either, although it has certainly hit harder than Ferguson, as blocking the eighth round has done more than Nate Campbell, the night has become a world champion to test.
Really, the match-up is beautiful, like all other sub-map of the attack, which will take place during the Main Event What baptized with undefeated welterweight sensation Paul Williams performed, and a second global fight song "Enough risky. " - Between the newly crowned king pen FBI, Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero and Orlando Salida also expected that the card is a good thing. And if Peden Vs Ferguson is likely to be a competition that takes place before a half-filled arena, the fight was a good thing.
Americans in sight, which is a juvenile phase earn more ambitious Australian, a man who wants to show that he has the ambition to go. Ten-round lightweight match should tell us much more about what men have to offer to their high level sport.
