Intro: Boxing fans are looking forward to the anticipated match-up simply dubbed as "The Event" between the Philippines' Manny Pacquiao and Ghana's Joshua Clottey. Tickets went on sale over the weekend for the March 13th fight that will take place at the $1.2 billion Texas Cowboys Stadium.

Similarities & Differences

There are little similarities between these fighters labeled as the "Pacman" and the "Grand Master." Pacquiao has ascended through the weight ranks all the way from light flyweight to welterweight. On the other hand, Clottey is a fairly sizeable 5'8" welterweight who may weigh in as much as 170 lbs during fight night.

The Philippine-based boxer typically trains in California in preparation for his boxing matches. While the Ghana, Africa native has relocated to, and trains in, New York on the U.S. east coast.

Ghana is a geographically small country on the western coast of Africa with a population of nearly 24 million. On the other hand, the Philippines is an archipelago comprising of over 7,000 islands and consists of a population approaching 100 million. Pacquiao sports a 50-3-2 record and will likely retire sometime in 2010. Clottey, who hails from Accra, Ghana, goes into the March bout with a 35-2 record and likely has a few years of boxing ahead of him at both welterweight and junior middleweight.
