Pacquiao on Clottey

With most of the questions pertaining to drug testing, retirement, Floyd Mayweather and politics, you wouldn’t have guessed that on March 13 in Dallas, Manny Paquiao will be stepping into the ring with Joshua Clottey.  “You cannot underestimate Clottey,” said Pacquiao. “He is older, and bigger than me, and a former world champ.”

Trainer Freddy Roach on Clottey: “We’re not gonna be there when he’s counterpunching us. When he throws, we’re not gonna be there. He’s a big, strong guy but size doesn’t win fights – skill does. Joshua Clottey will not be a problem. Manny will overwhelm him with speed and combinations. He will be the first person to stop Clottey.”

Pacquiao on Mayweather: “What I believe is that Floyd Mayweather is not ready for this fight, to face me. That’s why he makes up some reason to cancel the fight. I feel bad and disappointment, but this is boxing.” Stay tuned for a full report this weekend.
