Vernon Forrest vs. Carlos Baldomir on HBO BAD...

Pic from HBO Boxing.
It's tonight and since it's not on pay-per-view, maybe it's worth watching. But to put it bluntly, these guys haven't been on the spotlight for a while and their performances have been disappointing lately. Still this can be a good watch for fans of both fighters, but I'm afraid to say that I'm not one of them... I haven't seen Forrest fight for a while and he lost to Mayorga which is a fighter that I consider to have the least skill in all of boxing (probably alongside Edwin Valero) and Baldomir's win over Gatti didn't really do it for me since Gatti has been on the decline. And him vs. Floyd Mayweather was the most boring fight and mismatch I have ever seen. Maybe I'm just too much of a fan of blood and gore in fights, but I don't think these guys has the potential to make an exciting fight. Either way, I predict a win by Carlos Baldomir due to the fact that he has been more active than Forrest. Both guys weighed in at 154 lbs, by the way.
