Pacquiao vs Clottey
Next Saturday boxing pound for pound king Manny Pacquiao will face the rugged Joshua Clottey in a bout for the WBO welterweight championship of the world at the Cowboys' new stadium in Dallas, Texas. In anticipation of the bout, the Examiner will provide readers with analysis and predictions from insiders around the industry.

1. Hervi Estrada (California based Match Maker & Trainer)

"Clottey is just going to put pressure on him. Pacquiao knows how to move to the left and the right. He is going to do a number on him and at the end Pacquiao is going to walk away with a win."

2. John David Jackson (Former Two-Time World Champion & Top Trainer)

"The kid has a shot. He just needs the right-fight plan and then he needs to execute it. He’s strong and he’s durable. He has the right style to beat Pacquiao. He has to go to the body and attack the body and he can’t wait for Pacquiao because Pacquiao will definitely land those bombs on him. It’s an interesting fight. To me it’s not so much what Pacquiao does, but what Clottey does. He has to apply the pressure, constant pressure, three minutes of the round. Clottey has to be the aggressor, but it has to be affective aggression. He can’t go in there and try to knock Pacquiao out. I think Clottey has to be smart, keep those hands up, move that head side to side and break him down at the body. Pacquiao cannot do two things. He can’t fight off the ropes and he cannot fight on the inside. Those are the two things he has to do to offset Pacquiao. Looking at the kid, he’s definitely durable and he’s definitely tough so he has a shot, but it depends what type of fight he brings to the table.”

3. Nigel Collins (Editor & Chief of Ring Magazine)

"I think the most dangerous thing is Clottey’s head. Clottey’s head is like a helmet. Even some of the big fights that he wins, like when he beat Zab Judah, he was way ahead and winning the fight, but it was stopped on butt, and we all saw what happened to Cotto. There was a fight against Agapito Sanchez that Manny had years ago that was a real dirty fight and Sanchez was disqualified. Manny doesn’t like that kind of dirty fight so I think that is the main danger to Manny, but I think Clottey is a good fighter and Manny is a great fighter and the great fighter usually wins."

4. Henry Ramirez (Trains stable of fighters that includes Chris Arreola)

"For the first six rounds I wouldn’t doubt if it was three rounds even. After the first five or six rounds you are going to see a very close, almost a dead even fight, but I think ultimately after that, you are going to see Pacquiao really start to adjust and take command the way he seems to be doing lately. I think you are going to see him win going away like an eight to four decision. I could see him sweeping the whole second half of the fight. What would really be impressive is if he could stop Clottey. I don’t see it, but you really can’t doubt Pacquiao at this point in time!"

5. Timothy Bradley (WBO 140 Pound Champion)

"Pac-man, Pac-man all day, easy fight."

6. Andrew Parsons ( Staff Writer)

"Clottey is going to come prepared as he always does. I just doing think he is going to being able to avoid those swift and quick punches that Manny throws from all angles. Manny just seems to be getting better and better. Only a highly skilled tactician like Floyd Mayweather has a chance to beat Manny at this point-and even Mayweather’s talents are in question against the great Pac Man. I am picking Manny Pacquiao by ninth round stoppage over a very game and determined Clottey."
