“I know who I’m gonna fight and I know it’s not gonna be easy,” Joshua Clottey said about his March 13 showdown in Dallas with Manny Pacquiao, this morning on a national teleconference. “But I am coming all-out. I’m coming to be my best and to show my power in the ring.”
Clottey did not argue about entering the ring as an underdog, saying that Pacquiao “is the best. But if I beat him, I’m gonna be top of the world. I will get respect for me and my country.”
