"Pretty Boy" Floyd Mayweather and Carlos Manuel "Tata" Baldomir square off for the WBC welterweight championship in an HBO Pay Per View event on November 4 at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. The announcement was made today by Dan Goossen, President of Goossen Tutor Promotions, which is promoting the event in association with Sycuan Ringside Promotions. "First of all, we're ecstatic to see the 'true grit' abilities and determination of the modern day 'Cinderella Man' taking on the likes of Mayweather, clearly on the road to becoming one of the greatest of all time," Goossen declared. "Secondly, Mayweather-Baldomir on paper, conjures up thoughts as a 'Fight of the Year' candidate and from a sports fan's perspective this bout represents the linear world welterweight champion in Baldomir going against the pound for pound best in Mayweather. Mayweather continues to face champions in higher weight classes. This spectacular extravaganza will determine if 'size matters' when Baldomir tries to impose his will and strength on Mayweather or will the "Pretty Boy" show the world once again 'size doesn't matter' when fighting the best pound for pound fighter in the world?"
