An Ugly Fight

I never heard of Joshua Clottey but then again I expected his fight with Manny Pacquaio as a good one because he was a former world champions.

At first, I thought it will be a good fight when we started watching the bout last night because most of Manny's punches didn't hit him. Then on the following rounds, Clottey seems to just defend himself and not throw enough punches.

As rounds after rounds that Manny threw more than a hundred punches (3x more than what Clottey threw) the fight got boring. It became a clear and sure win for Pacquaio. Clottey was the challengers and his camp knew that if he is not gonna take the risk, he won't be able to win the bout. But it seems like Clottey is not listening to his trainers, he continued defending his face and not giving Manny a chance to knock him out and I think he was too scared of Manny that he is scared of taking off his hands away from his face even to throw a punch.

It was an ugly fight. I wanted a fight that both boxers will have their moments. Although I wanted to Manny to win, I still wanted a good entertainment. It seems like the entertainment you got from the bout is not enough to justify the PPV amount that you pay.

Lulu, I agree. I was very disappointed to see Clottey after the fight posing for pictures as well as smiling after that. I took as someone that was literally there to collect a paycheck while Pacquiao pounded him. And that isn't to think Clottey would have won anyway.

This fight proved beyond a shadow of doubt that there needs to be Pacquaio-Mayweather. This was definitely not a fair trade-in for fans to see one boxer show up for another sparring session.

I do think Pacquaio would beat Mayweather at this point anyway.
