Handspeed, chin, accuracy, heart/grit, timing, combination punching skill.

Forever wont be necessary, I'm just saying I'll be willing to give him respect if he shows something different.

I'm feeling confident though

It's not that he lost to him that made Clottey overrated, it's 'how' he lost. He was 'owning' Margarito early and then gassed/broke his hands, this gave people the notion that it was a one time event and that Clottey was some type of killer just for making Margarito look stupid early.

It was absurd for a few months.

well he did break his left hand or broke the knucle on his left hand, thats really his good hand. his right was never really anything special. that cost him that fight big time.

Surely these guys are worth more than 17.5k a fight? This further proves my example that boxing is definately not a rich man's sport.
17.5K is not a lot of money but it's still more then most guys do in the UFC.

No, but Clottey at this point is better at counter punching, and he's a better combo puncher. Trust if Collazo go toe to toe, he's going to taste that canvas more than once, which equals TKO

sorry guys i just dont see collazo taking this one. Clottey too quick, too powerful, too much. Expect clottey to double and triple up his left hook to victory.

You and I need to make a bet.
if he goes to the body and the head it wont matter if callozo darts in and out of the pocket. I think hell find callazo to the body. Dont worry about the bet though, i already got money lined up for clottey at sportsbook.com. i just dont think collazo is slick enough.

another thing too, i like callazo's straight left prolly his best weapon. Clottey holds his hands up though and I expect him to block it.
