    Forrest is the more talented fighter. Can he keep up the pace at his age?

    ROUND SEVEN

    Rinse, repeat...Baldo lands what Forrest lets him on the inside only to get pasted with wicked hooks...Nice exchange in the last twenty seconds, but the rest of the round was really just a pacing bit.

    ROUND EIGHT

    Emanuel Steward just said Forrest beats Winky because of his performance against Baldo...um, ok...Baldo just stood in the middle of the ring and watched Forrest circle him...that's called frustration...this has now devolved into the expected...How did this guy lose to Ricardo Mayorga...same as last round with no nasty exchange at the end...HBO shows some Freddie Steel footage and I just got wood.

    Re: Baldomit-Forrest RBR

    Official scores ALL for Forrest huge (but I missed jotting them down exactly; two were 118-109)

    Good interview from Forrest...said he had Mayorga flashbacks...said he wasn't calling anyone out after a five month camp, pointed at his eye saying 'look at my face' and they cut to Baldo...

    Baldo said some stuff in Spanish...Ray Torres said "He needs water on his balls...and Baldo couldn't cope with Forrest...Baldo said his last fight and that he was going to buy his own feather duster shop." Just kidding.

    Re: Baldomit-Forrest RBR

    That was a pretty good fight.

    I gave Bald the first and 9th rounds, but Forrset indeed won the fight. I give it a B. Pretty good fight from both fighters. Its better than DLH Mayweather and Hops Write combine lol.

    Re: Baldomit-Forrest RBR

    Forrest has decent boxing skills, Baldo has none, zip, nada, and he can't punch at all, he was make to order for Forrest, hard to say how far Forrest can go from here, as he is 36 years old, though he fought like a young 36 old man.

    The Bucket called me today and asked "How did these two end up fighting for the vacant WBC belt"? I only laughed and said, hopefully it will be a good fight and leave it at that.

    Re: Baldomit-Forrest RBR

    Credit to Forrest who has made it all the way back from tough injuries however he still looked susceptible to being caught with a short shot after winging his wide punches. These were the shots Mayorga beat him with. Still would want to see him fight again though.

    Ridiculous. Especially since Ike Quartey got robbed against Forrest in Vernon's last fight.

    I thought Forrest won the Quartey fight BUT he got caught a lot tonight. Bad sign.

    Re: Baldomit-Forrest RBR

    Forrest really took Baldo to school, but good God, Baldomir has the chin of early Cro-Magnum Man. Incredible. Vernon started slow but really turned it on in the middle rounds and it was fun to watch. Give Forrest credit . . Baldomir is not skilled but his pressure style and sharp shooting usually makes guys look bad. Not tonight. Even Floyd won his rounds by potshotting and running/holding, not really BOXING which is what Forrest did tonight. 154 has suddenly become a desolate place, so Forrest should have some defenses before age catches up.

    Ouma-Forrest anyone? That would be fun.

    Re: Baldomit-Forrest RBR

    I thought Forrest did well as he could against a game , likable Baldomir who is probably the luckiest boxer around to have got so far with a giant head , big heart and mediocre skills.

    Forrest might beat Ouma but it would be a tough fight probably better take on a Spinks or De la Hoya and then retire. He is an entertaining boxer .

    That Baldomir was able to get to Forrest at all and hurt him a bit doesn't bode well for Forrest , like others have said Baldomir was tailor-made for him. With all his injuries Forrest better cash out soon.

    Nice atmosphere in such a small venue. I hope this will initiate a series of televised cards from the site. PeteLeo.

    Re: Baldomit-Forrest RBR

    Forrest looked very rejuvenated IMO. He got caught a bit but only because he was looking to impress. He would have made Baldo miss all night if he wanted to but he chose to entertain. If he looked this sharp against Quartey it wouldn't have been close and the difference wasn't just the competition.

    I wished things had been different for Forrest. I always thought he was a solid talent. Even when he got KOd against Mayorga, he fought the wrong fight but he made it exciting while it lasted. He throws a great variety of quality shots and I think he outclassed PBF in comparison in many ways considering what each did to Baldo. He looked a very fresh 36 and I hope he spoils a few before he has to call it a day. I'd love to see him get that rematch with Mayorga. Win or lose against Vargas I think it will happen if Forrest keeps this up. Worse things can happen in boxing than Forrest stringing a few solid wins together.

    Re: Baldomir-Forrest RBR

    Belt became vacant when Floyd renounced his WBC LM Title he won from beating ODLH to keep the Welterweight version.
