So Manny Pacquiao just dominated Miguel Cotto to a welterweight title win via 12th round TKO. In Cotto's previous bout, he earned a split decision over Joshua Clottey. Therefore, by process of elimination Pacquiao should beat Clottey right?

Not exactly, and Pacquiao's promoters at Top Rank Inc. Should know that.

Just take a look at another Top Rank fighter, middleweight champion Kelly Pavlik. Pavlik twice beat Jermain Taylor, who twice beat Bernard Hopkins. Yet the one time Pavlik and Hopkins fought, Hopkins dominated Pavlik en route a near shutout unanimous decision.

Styles make fight and let's not forget that. Clottey is a solid welterweight with a good chin and nice defense. His speed certainly doesn't match Pacquiao's, however it's possible he may be able to pressure Pacquiao into his kind of fight. He just needs to stop that terrible habit of fading the last half of his fight and giving it away.

Clottey is real. The boxing world needs to remember that as we all hope for an eventual Pacquiao - Mayweather showdown. Clottey could stop it.
