Pacquiao vs Clottey a fight to take place at Cowboy’s Stadium.Â Manny Pacquiao and Joshua Clottey will pair up in the ring on March 13th. Boxing fans were once hoping for a March 13th fight between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather, Jr – but it appears as if those plans won’t work out.
Floyd Mayweather, Jr wanted Manny Pacquiao to take Olympic Style drug tests, and Pacquiao didn’t want to take them.Â He claims that having blood drawn prior to a fight weakens him.
But Pacquiao fans are still going to walk away the winners – they will see their famed Filipino fighting machine match up with Joshua Clottey.Â Granted the rivalry between the two fighters isn’t exactly close to that ofÂ Pacquiao and Mayweather, but it’s still a fight nonetheless.
The Dallas Cowboy’s stadium in Arlington, Texas will seat 100,000 and it is reported that there was a $25 million site fee.Â Some are speculating that the fight will not even come close to selling out because Joshua Clottey isn’t that big of a star.
Imagine what he will become if he beats Manny Pacquiao, the pound-for-pound best fighter in the league.Â Imagine the fame he will have then.
Some speculate that a Pacquiao vs Mayweather fight will still take place some time during 2010, but it is not certain at this time if that will be the case.Â Pacquiao vs. Mayweather is currenly only taking place in the court system, because of a defamation suit pending between the two fighters.
