Hatton vs Baldomir

6. w KO 6 Carlos Baldomir [2010]

CAGEY in the opening stages, the fight soon swung in Alvarez’s favour as he continued to land clubbing left hooks and straight rights on the ageing Baldomir. In the sixth, Alvarez began to do serious damage as Baldomir opened up, buckling his legs with uppercuts and hooks. A counter left hook sent Carlos face first into the canvas and he had no chance of beating the count – making Alvarez the first person to stop him in over 16 years, something the likes of Floyd Mayweather, Arturo Gatti and Zab Judah couldn’t do.
