Roach: Pacquiao to KO Clottey

MANILA, Philippines – Four-time Trainer of the Year Freddie Roach made a bold prediction on the outcome of Manny Pacquiao’s March 13 fight against Ghana’s Joshua Clottey.

“Clottey is very basic, he does the same things, but he is very good at what he does, but Manny is going to knock him out. He has a great chin, a big right hand, but Manny knows how to nullify his strengths,” Roach told The Telegraph’s Gareth Davies.

Clottey is a former International Boxing Federation (IBF) welterweight champion. He will aim to clinch Pacquiao’s World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight title.

Roach, meantime, talked about the progress in Pacquiao’s training camp.

“He has sparred twice, he looks really good, he knocked out one sparring partner and we have four other sparring partners in here at the moment.”

The pound-for-pound king and the Ghanaian will face off at the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. – With a report from Gareth Davies, The Telegraph
