2010 has been a very slow year so far for the sport of boxing. All of that is about to change in the next few months. What better way to kick off a few solid months of fights with the boxer who is considered the best in the business.
Manny Pacquiao takes on Joshua Clottey in a battle at 147 pounds. It will be a huge event seeing it is the first ever fight inside the new spectacle that is Dallas Cowboys Stadium.
There isn't much debate about who is the heavy favorite going into this fight. Pacquiao has beaten everybody in his path and done so very convincingly. Clottey is a nice fighter but everyone knows he was the backup plan when the fight between Manny and Floyd Mayweather Jr. fell apart.
As a true boxing fan, it is very hard to get excited for this fight when everyone wants to see Pacquiao in there with "The Pretty Boy." Manny is a guy that is very well prepared so I don't see how he would underestimate Clottey or look past him. If he does for some reason, he still would be a favorite to win.
