    Haven't heard much talk about this match up. I think it's really interesting. It really is a matchup for Alvarez to win but Baldomir has been known to pull off upsets.

    I for one think that this match up is much tougher for Alvarez than Jose Miguel Cotto.

    Dangerous fight for Alvarez, Baldomir is a tough customer. He is also, however, very old, and I think thats going to be the main difference here. Alvarez probably takes a hard fought decision, I dont see Baldomir getting stopped.

    It's an interesting card for sure. Although, I don't believe that Mora is a true test for Mosley, I really want to see if Mayweather just reduced Mosley to nothing or if Mosley really is on the decline. I believe it was just a brilliant Mayweather performance.

    Too slow and goofy I think Saul lights him up like a chirstmas tree.

    I don't see this being close either. Alvarez should defeat an ageing Baldomir, I'll take a clean UD.

    He looked good against Jose Miguel Cotto who really looked outclassed more than anything. He should probably pick up a solid decision against Baldomir.

    This is a good test against somebody his own size. Looking forward to it
