    Baldomir Stops Gatti in Nine 

    Welterweight champion Carlos Baldomir (43-9-6, 13 KOs) successfully defended his crown by stopping crowd favorite Arturo Gatti (40-8, 31 KOs) by a TKO at 2:50 of the ninth round Saturday night at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ. The bout was shown live in the U.S. on HBO.

    Baldomir dominated the entire fight, landing right hands almost at will and walking right through Gatti’s clean punches. He knocked Gatti down twice in the ninth round, first with a left hook and then a barrage of punches which caused referee Wayne Hedgepeth correctly and mercifully to halt the fight.

    With this decisive victory in an action-packed fight, Baldomir, who upset welterweight champion Zab Judah by unanimous decision in January, now becomes a leading candidate for 2006 Fighter of the Year. He also becomes a candidate for a mega-fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr.

    The well-worn Gatti, on the other hand, now has been battered in two of his last three fights, including his one-sided TKO loss last June to Mayweather. He must seriously consider retirement.

    Mike Marley has a round-by-round description of this fight on FightNightNews.com. Check it out. If you missed this fight, there are several replays on HBO2, so check your local listings.
