Thread: Pacquiao-Clottey fight thread

    Pacquiao-Clottey fight thread

    i know i said it before that this is a cherrypicking fight for pac, that arum chose this fight because pac fights his best vs brawler type fighters who keep going forward. yes i still think pac will win, there's no way clottey's active enough to win a decision, nor possess the power to KO pac.

    but man clottey is HUGE! check out clips of the cotto-clottey fight and he's bigger than cotto. cotto was bigger than manny, clottey's bigger than cotto. come fight night, pac will come in at his usual 146-148 while clottey will come in around 160. that's a huge difference. plus he's known to have a granite chin.

    that's why he's the best fighter of this era, he's not afraid to fight the biggest and the best. unlike some fighters out there (cough)mayweather(cough)

    "This is the problem. I've been a Welterweight for 16 good years. If you look at me from my head to my toe - my legs, my body, are all big. So sometimes I have to train hard to make the weight. So when you stay at the same weight for too long your knockout percentage comes down. I trained too much for the Welterweight division because that's where (the best opponents are). It's not that I lack stamina."

    what a thing for a fighter to say weeks before his fight. why expose your weakness?

    clottewy is one-dimensional. his offense is easy to defend against because he basically does the same thing everytime. wha he has going against him, as you've pointed out is his size and that he can take punishment well.

    however, in his few fights above 135, size has never been used against pac. he has faced hatton, goldie, and cotto but none of them tried to dirty it up against pac. so they ended up getting ko'd.

    what clottey should do is use his size to throw pac around the ring. push him, shove him, pull his head down, use his elbows and shoulders to hit him.

    if he just stands out there and hoped he'll land a punch that would knock pac out, then he'll be in for a long night.

    It was a one-sided affair in favor of Manny after 12 rounds.

    Clottey had his two hands in front of his face in the entire match which unfortunately for him took out his offense. He was afraid to attack Pacquiao as this would enable to open up his defense.

    Parang ang ratio is every 10 punches Pacquiao unleashes Clottey would only able to retaliate with just one punch.

    There was a point in Round 4 I think na napikon si Manny dahil ayaw talaga tanggalin ni Clottey ang mga kamay niya. Nag ala FPJ si Manny hitting both ears of Clottey. ;D The ref offcourse warned Pacquiao with that move. That was the most funniest and hilarious move I've seen in boxing. ;D

    Best exchange... Trainer: "You've gotta take a chance!" Clottey: "Nah."

    "Why do you want this so badly?

    Because they said I couldn't have it."

    "What did he say to you to make you try so hard?

    Be the best...."

    easily the most lopsided unanimous decision i've seen since larry holmes pounded randall "tex" cobb for 15 rounds. proof positive that clottey had no intention to mix it up with manny for fear of opening up his shell defense. as one writer said, it was basically a case of pacquiao being brilliant and clottey being reluctant.

    What a big upset in Dallas! The Knicks beat the Mavericks by 34! This was the upset Clottey was referring to!
