Pacquiao vs. Clottey Live Stream: Watch “The Event” Live Online (UPDATED)
Pacquiao vs. Clottey Live Stream: The much awaited clash between Manny Pacquiao and Joshua Clottey will be streamed live from the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The fight, tagged as “The Event”, is scheduled on Saturday, March 13, at 9PM ET/6 PM PT.
Joshua Clottey (35-3, 20 KOs) will try to get an upset by challenging the Filipino’s World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight crown. The 31-year-old Manny Pacquiao (50-3-2, 38 KOs) got his belt after he demolished Puerto Rican Miguel Cotto in November 2009. It will be his first WBO title defense.
Both Pacquiao and Clottey fought Miguel Cotto on the ring but the two had different outcome. Pacquiao floored Cotto while Clottey was defeated in a controversial split-decision on June 13.
Personally, The Pacquiao-Clottey fight could end up as a much better and exciting fight than many of the people and boxing fans think. Manny, the seven time world champion in seven different weight divisions is no doubt an exhilarating fighter with superb handspeed and power punches. Joshua, on the other hand, has a strong chin and I think “Pacman” cannot go easy on him because he can definitely take punches with solid left hooks and powerful uppercuts, not to mention his dirty tactics.
Pacquiao is favored to win this match. Clottey will go to the ring with the odds against him but with the opportunity of a lifetime before him. On Saturday, it will be the Philippines versus Ghana! Pacquiao versus Clottey!
I can’t wait to see this fight because possibly, the winner of this bout could be matched up against the winner of the Mayweather-Mosley fight on May 1, 2010 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.
My prediction: Pacquiao by KO between rounds 8 to 10.
UPDATE: My prediction was wrong but in the end Manny Pacquiao retained his WBO welterweight title by defeating Joshua Clottey via unanimous decision.
