I am disgusted by the articles insulting Joshua Clottey’s performance against Manny Pacquiao.
It is easy for those who never fought a day in their life to criticize a person who puts his life on the line in the ring.
If you know boxing, you know Clottey’s style, he is a chess player, he waits for opening and times his shots well.
When he did throw punches he landed, he was able to damage Pacquiao’s face. Clottey was more accurate with his punches than Pacquiao.
For all of those who say Clottey just fought to survive or for a paycheck, how about you go in there to fight Manny Pacquiao?
I know many of you will not last the first round if Pacquiao threw those fast powerful combos at you. Clottey’s defense allowed him to last 12 rounds without a mark on his face.
Pacquiao is not a guy you trade punches with, if you trade with him, he will always get the better of you and knock you out.
Clottey knew if he trade with Pacquiao, he will be knocked out, he was preparing to use his game plan, but he never expect that Pacquiao will be so aggressive and never get tired in there.
Joshua’s defense must be praised because Manny Pacquiao threw plenty of punches but nothing was able to hit Clottey clean.
Boxing is a sport. Not every fight will be a brawl, there is a science to boxing that only the real fans can appreciate. The main goal is to hit and not be hit.
Show some respect to Joshua Clottey, he did his best, but a better man won.
