Pacquiao-Clottey Quick Quotes

Marty Rosengarten/

By Mariano A. Agmi and Alex Dombroff

Freddie Roach: This is a tough fight for us. Joshua is a big, strong welterweight, so we have a task in front of us. We have to find his strengths and flaws and figure out how to take away his strengths and take advantage of his weaknesses.

Joshua Clottey: This is a miracle opportunity for me. To share a ring with Manny Pacquiao is something I want to do because he is the best fighter pound for pound. He beat everyone in front of him, but I promise you that we are coming to fight and we will please the people.

Manny Pacquiao: Joshua Clottey’s style is different from styles I have fought. Clottey is bigger and taller than Miguel Cotto. I thought his fight with Cotto was very close. I have to prepare and train hard for this fight because Clottey is a strong fighter and a former champion. I won’t promise that I’ll win, but I promise a good fight.

Promoter Bob Arum: Yesterday we held a press conference in Cowboys Stadium. It was truly stupendous. It will be a great event held in the greatest stadium in the world. Those making the trip to Dallas will see a boxing event like they’ve never seen before.

HBO’s Mark Taffet: We are proud to be a part of the inaugural telecast at the new Cowboys Stadium. It gives new meaning to the phrase “Everything is bigger in Texas.”
