The fight was never close, as Forrest drilled Baldomir all night long and turned his face a nasty red by the 12th round. Baldomir proved to have an excellent chin, as always, but his lack of power and speed were major flaws that kept him from being a factor in the fight. In the end, Forrest had far too many boxing skills for the slow-footed Baldomir, who was forced to eat a tremendous amount of leather tonight.
