Manny Pacquiao versus Joshua Clottey fight on March 13, 2010

Manny Versus Clottey
THE EVENT, Manny Pacquiao and Joshua Clottey camp agreed to fight for WBO welterweight championship on March 13, 2010 in in Arlington, Texas, USA at the Dallas Cowboys Stadium. This is due to the failed negotiations of Pacquaio vs Mayweather. They didn’t agree with the terms of the fight and the issue on drug testing. Bob Arum announced that the pound for pound king will fight against the native boxer of Ghana.

We know everything about Manny Pacquiao and who is our concern? His opponent. Who is Joshua Clottey? Clottey became prominent by winning in his first twenty fights, including 14 by knockout. His performance set him up to fight Carlos Baldomir, in a title defense by Baldomir for the WBC International Welterweight Title. Clottey lost by disqualification in a controversial fight. Joshua Clottey was winning the fight until the 10th round, where he was penalized two points for an intentional head butt. He was warned for his head but did it again resulting in the referee stopping the fight and disqualifying Clottey.Clottey rebounded from the loss by winning the African Boxing Union welterweight title in his next fight. He then rolled off a 10 fight winning streak which was highlighted by his first win on American soil and the capturing of several minor welterweight and middleweight titles culminating in an IBF Intercontinental welterweight title.

For sure many Filipinos will once again support Manny Pacquaio who have proven his craft for years. Pacquiao is currently the WBO World welterweight champion, Ring Magazine light welterweight champion, and is rated by Ring Magazine as the number 1 pound-for-pound boxer in the world.

He is also the former WBC World lightweight champion, WBC World super featherweight champion, IBF World super bantamweight champion, and WBC World flyweight champion.

The Filipino boxing superstar is the first boxer in history to win seven world titles in seven different weight divisions.Aside from boxing career, Manny has also participated in Politics, acting, and Music Recording.

The Event can be watched on HBO PPV after HBO agreed to cover the mega event of the year in Texas. Mayweather’s camp tried to convince the network to cover his upcoming fights but HBO prefers Pacquiao. The ticket was cost $50-$700 from corner to front near ring on the floor of the Cowboys Stadium. To all Filipinos and Americans who are fan of Boxing, I once again invite you to don't miss this fight on March 13, 2010
