Had he landed a counter shot in the 5th round and knocked Pacquiao out, he would have been dancing like 1989 MC Hammer on meth, and talking to Kellerman about how he was in the best shape of his life. Now, he was dehydrated, had diarrhea, contracted a parasitic worm of some sort after swimming in the Nile, got gonorrhea from the same hooker who gave it to Tyson before the Berbick fight in '86, and who knows what else.
Yeah... not buying it.
And you're not getting a rematch, Joshua. It was like watching Pacquiao fight a refrigerator for 36 minutes. I might watch a rematch on Friday Night Fights but, as of right now, I'm sending you my DirecTV bill to whatever little fucking hut you live in in Ghana.
I know Pacquiao at his best can be overwhelming, and he was just ON against Clottey, but when you're in the biggest fight of your career, and the biggest fight you'll ever have, OPEN IT UP! Take risks! Make a conscious effort. Everyone is harping on Lampley. I think he was pissed off because:
a.) the undercard, for the most part, blew. Duddy's sorry ass and a Castillo who really shouldn't be fighting. All that was missing was another half-hour of Chavez Jr. bullshit.
b.) Clottey was less active than ever. He made the effort against Cotto look like a firestorm. Lampley screaming "Bang! Bang! Wanna throw? BANG!" was more about, "Damn it, Joshua, could you do SOMETHING in return? At least TRY for the 50,000 people here and the millions watching you defecate in the middle of the ring? At least stop going into hunchback mode, covering up and standing still, and TRY instead of just letting Pacquiao tee off?" I think he, like the rest of us, wanted an honest effort and it didn't happen. Of course, what did was really expect? That... right there. Clottey putting on the earmuffs and Pacquiao firing power shots and chopping his body down. If anyone really expected something else, please explain WHY.
Simply, if Clottey was dehydrated and had diarrhea, he must have had diarrhea for every fight of his career.
Sack up, Clottey.
LoL You sounds like Jim in desperation...Bang Bang Bang here I come Bang...
