Watch Out for Pacquiao Vs. Clottey Fight
Manny Pacquiao doesn’t have much to say. Joshua Clottey probably says less than Pacquiao. The thing that spoke the loudest at the final news conference for their fight on Saturday was the venue, Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
The Manny Pacquiao vs. Joshua Clottey fight is set for this Saturday night from the Dallas Cowboy’s stadium in Texas. Manny Pacquiao is a 5 to 1 favorite in the fight but the odds do not show the talent of his challenger Clottey who comes into the fight with an impressive record of 35-3.
Many boxing experts feel Clottey will be the toughest test for Pacquiao in years. With twenty knockouts, Clottey is a fierce fighter who has only lost three times in his career.
Clottey has a perfect boxing stance with arms always held to his sides protecting his body as well as hands even with his head. The stance will give Pacquiao a very tough target in the fight to get through power, size, speed, stamina, and toughness to give the seven-division World Champion all he can possibly handle.
In addition, with his gloves always held high to his face and his back hunched over so that his elbows protect his body, Clottey has a tight defense that will be extremely challenging for Pacquiao to crack.
Clottey has lost in the past to Carlos Baldomir, Antonio Margarito, and Miguel Cotto but he was never knocked out in any of those fights. In addition to that, Clottey could have won one or more of these fights as he faced unusual events in the fights. In one fight, he suffered a broken hand while another had him lose points due to two accidental head butts.
The Pacquiao vs. Clottey fight will be shown live on PPV.
