Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

"Let's throw punches now" to Clottey. Bad idea imo.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

More of the same. Clottey hitting Manny, but not doing any damage. Manny is slowly breaking through Clottey's tight guard.

Round - Pac - Clottey
1 - 10 - 9
2 - 10 - 9

More punches from Pac but the cleaner shots coming from Clottey. Looking interesting....

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

Clottey starting to open up, but still isn't outlanding Pacquiao.

Round - Pac - Clottey
1 - 10 - 9
2 - 10 - 9
3 - 10 - 9

Side note: I know I am way behind with sopcast.

Clottey needs KO, Manny killing it 4 - 0 on any reasonable scorecard, maybe 3rd a tie

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

Manny will catch him some time in the 8th, when Clottey realizes he has no chance on the card.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

Pac bringing out the combos now and Clottey looks to be retreating into his shell. Not looking totally out of it yet, but he's in danger of letting the fight get away from him by defending too much and hoping that Pac tires.

10-9

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

Clottey has clearly committed to fighting the most boring fight ever, and so far he's succeeding.

Pacquiao seemingly scores at will. 40-36 ainec

Praise to Bjorn for the Veetle TV link. Regarding the fight, yeah, like everyone else, all Pacman so far.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

very tight guard from Clottey these opening rounds and some nice looking straight punches too.

but of course Manny the far busier and winning rounds

Just too much aggro from Pac. I saw one nice shot from Clottey but it's nowhere near enough.

I am no boxing expert, but is Don King the Joe Morgan of boxing announcers?

+1, this is pathetic. 50-45 Pac through 5, easily.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

Pacquiao's punch volume is incredible. Clottey is closing up way too much. If he wants to win, he'll have to become more aggressive.

Round - Pac - Clottey
1 - 10 - 9
2 - 10 - 9
3 - 10 - 9
4 - 10 - 9

Looks like Clottey came to pick up his check tonight.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

These two fights are going to take away all the momentum that would make a Floyd fight a megafight.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

not the most exciting 6 rounds since Clottey is playing it so safe but Manny's work rate is still pretty awesome to watch. Just bombarding that tight guard from all angles.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

Clottey might as well take some chances, either he'll do some damage or get to head home a little earlier.
