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

60-54 Pac, I don't know why I'm bothering to keep score. You can't get consistently outpunched 3:1 and win a fight. You just can't do it.

Unless Clottey really thinks he's going to test Pac's endurance late and ship a shock KO.

I don't think it's that he doesn't want to win, but that even the best fighters available aren't a match for Pac. What can you do against someone with such a high work-rate and punch speed except defend and look for the counter?

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

Giving up scoring, we're obviously waiting on Pac tiring and Clottey going for a KO in the later rounds. Does Pac ever tire? Doubt it...

Emmanuel Steward, one of the best trainers of all time.

70-63, Clottey's trainer instructs his fighter to "be creative now, let's throw punches." lol.

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

This is rather pathetic... but really... what can Clottey do?

We all know if he starts opening up he's going to get tagged by about 20 punches before he can close his guard again... Pacquio is just that good.

Please let Pacman/ PBF happen. Please.

Never thought about it before now but yeah I guess Stewards voice is a little similar. King is usually just spouting nonsense though while Steward has great insights (eh unlike both King and Morgan). One of the greatest coaches ever.

Don't know if it's the case anymore but for years and years Don King was connected with SHowtime competing with HBO's boxing.

Showtime's broadcasts often made pretty hard to watch exactly because of King's ridiculous appearances.

That check equals one million dollars. Must be nice . . .

He must be counting down in his head. 5 more to go . . .

Yeah you're insane, haha. No one on the telecast sounds like Don King. I guess you are talking about Manny Steward being the Joe Morgan of boxing announcers.

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

Clottey can hit for sure.

I hope he starts opening up more soon...he has to.

Edit: Really interesting strategy if he's waiting for Manny to tire, since his endurance has always been pretty phenomenal.
