Pacquiao vs Clottey Update

pacquiao vs clotteyBoxing is all but one month away from Manny Pacquiao vs Joshua Clottey stepping into the ring in front of thousands inside the Dallas Cowboy’s new home arena, but more importantly the “PacMan” is one month away from letting his fists do the talking in an effort to quiet the constant criticism by trainers – Floyd Mayweather Sr and Teddy Atlas – and fighters – Floyd Mayweather Jr, Paulie Malignaggi, Kermit Cintron, to name a few – who have linked the Filipino’s best boxer success to the possible use of steroids and other performance enhancing drugs.

But I think they are wrong. Pacman is not like that. As you can see if you are fighting in a heavy ring then you lose some blood you feel too lousy and too weak. You will lose more power. That is why Pacquiao did not agree with that deal. By the way Pacquiao is the Champion here not Floyd Mayweather, Paulie Malignaggi and Teddy Atlas.

If they want to be a number one boxer they need to win against the title holder. Lost in the everyday rumors, accusations and predictions surrounding the sports consensus #1 ranked pound-for-pound superstar, is the fact that Pacquiao’s opponent on March 13th – the tough as nails “Grand Master” Joshua Clottey – is hardly a journeyman looking to get a quick payday and then sit back and watch as Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr – who will have his own problems on May 1st with Shane Mosley – shatter every record within the boxing business come late fall.

Clottey is fighting for his country, it is the same with Pacquiao. They are fighting for there countrys and called the number 1 pound for pound fighter.
