DLH just said on BT that they are talking about it but nothing is signed yet.

Shows that Campbell is now on top of the list.

Not only that... but his defense and counter punching could be a very effective combo along with his size and strength against an aggressive Pacman. This should shape up into a very interesting fight. DEFINITELY one of the most dangerous fights out there at 147 for Pac.

Fights against extremely dangerous, high risk/low reward fighters are what makes a true champion. These are exactly the types of fights that Floyd Mayweather avoids like the plague.
Clottey is the best fight available to Pac at 147, in this time frame, there's no question about that. I'm simply not that interested in it. Pac should be able to win this fight on points using the same strategy he used against DLH. Step in, unload a combo, slip, move to the side, step out. He can keep it up for 12 rounds, and Clottey tends to take his foot off the gas anyway. He's also not very good at mixing offense and defense. He's either in defensive more or in offensive mode. Pac will hit him while he's in defensive mode and be gone before he can retaliate.

He also isn't a noted strong puncher. His KO percentage is 57%, lower even than Mayweather's, and of his last 10 fights only one ended in a stoppage, and most of those fights weren't exaclty against top drawer competition. His only real advantage in this fight is that he's very durable, and very big. But that's not enough to get him a win against a faster, more mobile, more active, and harder punching opponent.

By being too small to pose a threat.

The Trainer of the Year recipient stated that [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] fighting at 147 lbs.
“Making 135 was a bit of a struggle, making 140, we can make 140 with ease, but he likes the extra strength, he likes eating the day of the weigh-in,” added Roach.
“When Manny’s eating the day of the weigh-in and gets to eat twice before the weigh-in, he’s happy, and that’s when he performs at his best, when he’s smiling and in a good mood. He’s not in an angry mood because he’s starving himself.”


I'd say that makes him a legitimate welterweight who can also still make JWW if he tries, not the reverse.

I will say whatever the hell I want about whatever topic that I wish.

BTW... you are saying that GBP took the time to respond to Boxingtalk just to tell them to leave them alone? Uhhh.... have you not been following the news the past couple of days? They have basically been on the horn around the clock talking about everything under the sun... dispelling rumors about upcoming opponents.... talking about the negotiations with Pac... ect... and now they give a "No Comment"? OBVIOUSLY they are in negotiations with him whether it comes through or not. If they weren't... like I said they would have returned with the same comment as they did about Matthew Hatton when asked.
I find it hilarious that you're a raging moron, so I'm glad we're both entertained.

LOL at all of this, and they are talking about April...he could fight the Shane-Berto winner by then!

Even worse it might be on HBO, Floyd will be eating up the HBO budget ala DLH-Forbes, I would much rather see this tank on PPV.

at ww yes ...bradley pac would be a real fight though....i am not sold that clottey is even top 5 tho with collazzo, quintana and cintron...but yeah it is a good name...meaningless and he has no chance but that is besides the point
