I LIKE HUMBLE BOXERS
The huge interest Ghana in his upcoming boxing match with Manny Pacquiao on March 13 at the Dallas Cowboy Stadium in Texas.
With an interview at Hardcore Sports Radio, Joshua Clottey said, "he always wanted to fight the best out there. And now he is fighting Manny Pacquiao"
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 encounter 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 source of comfort to the failed Pacquiao-Mayweather bout. But for Joshua Clottey, he considers this fight as his biggest in his boxing career.
In a very optimistic voice, Clottey said, "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."
If Clottey will have victory over Pacquiao in March will mean bigger fights and a bigger payday in his future matches.
GOOD LUCK GUYS
