Top Rank Promotions and Manny Pacquiao’s camp agreed to fight Joshua Clottey on March 13, 2010. This is the result of the failed negotiations of the megafight Pacquiao vs Mayweather. After both camps didn’t agree with the terms of the fight (specifically the method of drug testing), Bob Arum announced that the pound for pound king will be fighting against the Ghana-native boxer. When I read about this news, I really find it to be a very easy fight for the Filipino fighter. This conclusion is just based on Clottey’s fight against Miguel Cotto (who was beaten by Pacman on their last match).

However, this thinking changed when I heard Freddie Roach said that this match will be one of the best boxing event and Pacquiao will surely have a hard time with him compared to Mayweather. It will not be a boring fight – not directly said by him but this is what he is trying to say.

The said fight will be held at the Cowboys Stadium at Dallas but Arum doesn’t confirm yet if it will be featured in HBO or not.

    I am so glad that my all time favorite fighter, “The Pacman”, won by beating Clottey so convincingly. Having said that I also want to say how disappointed I am in Joshua Clottey. He didn’t come to fight. HE CAME TO PICK UP A MULTI MILLION DOLLAR PAYCHECK IN RETURN FOR STANDING BEFORE 51,000 PEOPLE WITH HIS FACE COVERED FOR 36 MINUTES. He should be forced to give all that money to charity and then never allowed to fight again. The most he ever Won before last night was a $35,000 purse. now he get over 3 million? what a joke.
