Pac was on top of his game, the fight was scheduled in Dallas stadium so big deal, Clottey stank out the joint by fighting for survival, you similar to how MAB who is a warrior fought for survival in their second fight.

Everything points to Pac dominated him, and networks lost interest in Clottey when he managed to stink out a Dallas stadium with all that hype, and stink out one of the most exciting fighters in the world. What's hard to understand about that? Gatti became popular for his action style, Clottey became unpopular for his survival style in that fight.

It's not like clottey was on his last fight or last legs for health reasons and this dude talked SOOOOO MUCH SHIT to everyone in the sport before the pacquiao fight. Where is this guys interviews? Why isn't he calling out any top rank fighters? Why did he fight complete strangers? It's bigger than just the effort inside the ring.
if clottey "TRIED"...he would prolly be knocked out or just busted up like cotto...

People here dont seem to realize that Clottey ALWAYS fights like that. He opens up in bursts and uses the high guard.

Against someone like Mundine, he has plenty of time to open up and land, against Pacquiao who constantly throws hard punches, he didnt.

Its thyat simple.

Also, he actually landed some decent shots on the pac fight.

ALSO, why on earth would you fix a fight so that the over-whelming favorite wins, just as expected.

this comment is unjust. there is a probable cause in your opinion that will be coursed to due process before concluding to no doubt otherwise it is destructive to the sport.

The truth is, Pac-Clottey was fixed.
Afterwards, Clottey takes a couple years off, and lives confortably in his new mansion in Ghana???

then Pac-Margarito was obviously fixed.
margarito had been suspended, then lets Pac win on purpose, and is later rewarded with an issuance of his license and gets to fight Cotto in rematch???

Clottey was/is pretty good. He gave Cotto plenty of trouble and probably even deserved the win (that head-butt in round 3 hurt and cut Cotto, it definately helped Clottey). He beat Zab Judah and D. Corrales (not Corrales at his best though). He got DQd way back in the day vs. Baldomir (head-butts). He didn't look good vs. Margarito and he looked like shlt vs. Pacquiao. What else can you really say about him? He won a clear decision over Mundine recently (in Australia even)... good for him.

I doubt he took a dive.
