A FIFTH STRAIGHT KNOCKOUT.
That will be Manny Pacquiao’s target when he stakes his World Boxing Organization welterweight title against Joshua Clottey on March 13 at the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
Master trainer Freddie Roach, who has accurately predicted Pacquiao’s stoppages of David Diaz, Oscar De La hoya, Ricky Hatton and Miguel Cotto in succession, told Fighthype.com Monday that they want to put Clottey away inside the distance.
“I think we’re going to get him (Clottey) in 12 easily, but he’s definitely a tough guy to knock out,” said Roach. “That’s our goal, to knock him out and be the first one to do that (against Clottey).”
