He couldn't do it in his biggest fight with a busted up Cotto ripe for the picking, the dude punches on a limited budget like he's on one of those computer games where your "life" drops the more you punch, he better hope Shane gets injured or something even then Clottey won't go for kill, killer instinct is not something one can turn on and off like a tap, you don't just find it over night either.
I tend to believe he did have an injury in the Marg fight...was it not the 4th or 5th he hurt his hand??

Anyway the Marg fight is not relevant to the point i was originally making as in the Cotto fight he genuinely thought he was winning the fight.

I honestly believe he will have learnt lessons from the Cotto bout.

Ok so Andre Berto's over protected arse has just gone completely soft on us...i guess the money he never earned, and the title he never deserved and the pampering he got from HBO got to his head now the little girl is turning down a career high pay day against an average fighter on the Mosley-Clottey undercard and his second reason is...HE DOESNT WANT TO LOSE WEIGHT ON CHRISTMAS lol no need to see this kid in the ring hes already a loser in my mind.

I just noticed that, i'm surprised there ain't more boxing cards on boxing day, they could've turned it into a tradition where people new it as a day to go watch some boxing.

I think Shane maybe knew that Clottey may give him problems and even though he may not win the fight, he'll make Shane look bad thus Mayweather/Pac can have a cop out of fighting him. I think he wanted Zab to look good against.

FFS I was on the West Coast last Christmas, I only missed the De La Hoya-Pac fight because I had already booked in to run the Tucsan marathan. This Christmas I decided to do Florida as I figured no chance that there will be any boxing in Vegas from the 18th Dec onwards!!!

you still aint learnt with Clottey lol Clottey will never win a fight against a offensive minded fighter (especially one with speed like Shane) people are bringing up Winky but He fights NOTHING like Winky other then the earmuff stance. Winky works all day behind his non stop jab followed by right hands. Clottey is a "waiter" he waits to punch off counters. I got Shane in a "ugly" but fair win. Shane will look bad at times but all he's gotta do is keep his hands moving and the judges will be good with that.

Brilliant, this is a proper fight. That classless little punk Zab can go pick up his chump change on ESPN instead.

Mosley takes this for me on the cards. Clottey showed a great performance against Cotto, but when the pressure was needed to be put on he didnt press. I had Clottey winning by one round i think it was, but still could have made a case easily for Cotto winning. I think it also depends what Mosley steps in the ring, the Mosley that fought Mayorga i think Clottey would beat. Although coming off his crushing win against Margarito, Shane still has it.

The Mosley that fought Mayorga was at 154 where he's not as effective. Mosley is capable of stopping Clottey in my opinion, I don't see Clottey having any answer for his hand speed.
