I dont know about you guys, but Joshua Clottey would've remained a force in the Welterweight division, but he's nowhere to be found nowadays. He could've been a credible test for guys like Khan, Bradley, and Alexander, who all plan to move up to WW...if they haven't already done so. He could've also been a good scrap for Berto and Ortiz as well...and I remember Ortiz fighting Clottey's brother earlier in his career.

I've been saying this about Clottey for a while now, and it could hold some truth at the present time. I can remember the problems he gave guys like Judah, Margarito, Baldomir, Cotto, and so forth. If all you can bring up is that fluke ass Pacquiao fight and write him off...then please make it your business to get the fuck outta this thread right now. Other than that, share your qualified thoughts...

the reason i wrote him off is his inability to take risks, i mean in the cotto fight he had cotto hurt, face all puffy and what not and just did nothing and then complains about being robbed. i think he'd be good for any fighter to showcase some technical skill because his ear muffs make it slightly hard to hit him clean.

I'm pretty sure Clottey is moving to 154. Maybe he could fight Margarito or Mosley

I remember watching a video with clottey calling out paul williams. He was saying how pwill is a weak welterweight. Im with you man he is a perfect test for the up and coming 140 pounders.

Well Shaft, the question is when he reemerges what kind of fighter is he going to be? Is he going to be a punching bag or is he going to actually box? Clottely has a good personality and I think his reach would give Khan/Sergio fits. But if he just stands there like a punching bag then he can stay in Uganda.

Thank you! This dude is no punk by any measure. Yes, he doesn't take many risks, but you gotta look at the condition that opponent is usually in after the fight is over. Any guy that can break his opponents down and rarely takes any punishment due to his decent defense, is always a force to be reckoned with. I dont ever remember this dude being in too much trouble in the ring.

How many of his fights have you actually saw? Pleeeease dont mention that Pacquiao circus that most of us wasted our money on.
