Joshua Clottey proved to be a one giant punching bag for Manny Pacquio. Yesterday's match only solidified Manny's reputation as the pound for pound king of the ring. Watching the man fight in his prime makes one realize that he will remain the pound for pound king for awhile. It wasn't as flashy as his knockout of Ricky Hatton or as savage as the beating he gave Oscar De La Hoya, but there was no doubt Pacquiao was in command the entire way against Clottey, who kept his gloves up high in front of his face, rarely risking a flurry. The Gahnian seems only interested in keeping his record of zero knockout than winning the fight. I cant really blame him because when faced with a hail of punches it will really be stupid to stick your head up. Pacquiao advanced against his taller opponent and threw punches with both hands from all angles, the same style that gave him spectacular wins in his past three fights and, though Clottey was clearly the bigger fighter, he rarely sought to use his reach advantage.
As Freddie Roach told Pacquio on the third round "Everything working now, Its Easy".
As of now Pacquio seems to mow down his opponents unlike before when he had time problems dealing with the likes of Barrera and Marques. He seems to be on the top of his game now and it will take another legend to take him down. Currently there is no other boxer to match him in raw speed and endurance. All of his current matches make no contest at all.
