25,000 Pacquiao-Clottey Tickets Sold

Information gathered by DAILY GUIDE SPORTS indicates that 25,000 tickets have been sold for the crunch boxing fight between Ghana's Joshua Clottey and Philippine Manny Pacman Pacquiao, scheduled for March 13, 2005.

According to reports, boxing fans across the United States are hoping to witness the biggest fight in Dallas, Texas, hence the scramble for tickets.

Clottey is regarded as a fearsome welterweight boxer and acclaimed American trainer Freddie Roach says the boxer is a “very dangerous” fighter; that is why Pacman must ready himself to go the distance against the Ghanaian on March 13.

He said, “We're gonna get ready for 12 hard rounds…We'll be ready. We have 6 weeks now to get ready for the fight.”

Fans of Pacquiao regard him as a superman who can make the impossible possible and who can subdue all his opponents effortlessly.

Meanwhile, Joshua Clottey would hold a press conference in Ghana today to throw more light on his intended fight with the Philipino who holds the World Boxing Organisation (WBO) welterweight crown. He is expected to brief sports journalists about his preparations for the big fight and his appeal to the government to intervene to ensure his trainer gets a visa to travel to the USA.
