Pacquiao vs. Clottey.....Pacman vs. Grandmaster

Guys here we go again. I am sure Manila's street tomorrow will be open wide and your ordinary 1 - 2 hour traffic will be reduce to 5 - 10 minutes. It has always been like this since Philippines's "Pambansang Kamao" (National Fist) has given glory to the country through boxing.

Pacman's coach, Freddie Roach, remark that this fight be go to the score cards and then retracted it saying it won't last to 9 rounds upon seeing Pacquiao's ultimate weapon for Clottey. Well little is known about Clottey or should I say "I know little about Clottey." 

Clottey is origianlly from Ghana and now lives in Bronx, NY. He is welterweight boxer and have a record of 35-3-0 of which 20 are KO. Has a solid defense and a combination of size, speed, stamina, boxing skills, power, and chin. Clottey has top defensive skills; the way he uses his gloves and arms to protect himself from his opponent's punches is very similar to Winky Wright's defensive stance.

One of my co-worker's comment is that Pacquiao might loose. The height of his career has already begun and as he said all things that go up must some point in time will go down. The size of Clottey might be Pacquiao's big hindrance and as some observers commented, Clottey is a like Pacman himself in his speed and toughness. Clottey had this big break to fight the world's considered best pound-per-pound boxer when the Pacquiao-Mayweather fight did not materialize. 

Tomorrow will be the fight and all boxing fans will be glued in to their plasma tv to see weather Clottey has it takes to be the boxer to stop Pacquiao's career or will this fight be the proof of Pacquiao's dominance in boxing.
