article imageClottey: 'Pacquiao Fight Gets Bigger In Ghana'

By Edwin Ladaga     Jan 21, 2010 in Sports
Former IBF welterweight champion Joshua Clottey talks about Ghana's huge interest in his upcoming boxing match with Manny Pacquiao on March 13 at the Dallas Cowboy Stadium in Texas.
"I always want to fight the best out there. And now I'm fighting Manny Pacquiao" said Joshua Clottey in a recent interview with Hardcore Sports Radio.
There was a time when the hard hitter from Ghana couldn't get good fights because most fighters in his division were avoiding him. It seems that his hard work over the years is paying off. Now, he gets to engage with two great welterweight boxers in Cotto and Pacquiao within a span of one year.
Most boxing fans have treated Pacquiao-Clottey encounter as a consolation to the failed Pacquiao-Mayweather super fight. But for Joshua Clottey, he considers this fight as his biggest in his boxing career.
"In my country, this fight is big. It hasn't even started yet. The fight is getting bigger and bigger in Ghana.They know that Manny Pacquiao is one of the best fighter in the world and I'm the best fighter in Ghana." said Clottey in a very optimistic voice.
Joshua Clottey, a 5-foot-8 welterweight has a 35-win and 3 loss record. He has never been knocked out, His three losses were very close and they were from elite fighters like Miguel Cotto and Antonio Margarito. A Clottey victory over Pacquiao in March will mean bigger fights and a bigger payday in his future matches.
