Guys,

This is not to dicredit Pac's win over Clottey but his could be a possible.
Just consider this. I know this sounds delusional but just try to ponder.

~~~~~~~
After the talks of Pac-May fight collapsed, Pac was without a partner for Mar 13 sked.
Arum is desperate. Manny has to fight before the election period.
So he has to look for a viable opponent.
Mosley and Berto at that time were not available. Cotto is done, Marg has no licence.
Valero has just fought, Malignaggi is not marketable.
So he was left with no other option than to let Clottey fight.
Anyway, he is ranked #5 at welter but he won't bring any money.
And here is how they fixed the fight.

This is coming from an unknown email c/o Teddy Atlas:

Arum: Do you want to fight Pac?
Clottey: I'd love to.
Arum: OK. I'll give you $1M. Just be opposite Pac on March 13.
But be sure not to defeat him. I know you are bigger and is capable of defeating Pac.
He is my cash cow. He has to remain that way.
You fight, you earn your biggest purse, I earn my share, Pac can have his funds for his campaign.
Clottey: But I want to win. I want to be on top of the welter division.
Arum: You want to earn or not? I know you are desperate after you're defeated by Cotto.
Clottey: Uhm OK. But how about the PPV?
Arum: Considering that you are not the draw, I'll give you 10% of whatever the fight will generate after 300k buys.
Do you think its fair enough?
Clottey: But what if the PPV will not reach 300k? I will surely pocket less than $500k after deductions from trainer's purse, taxes, expenses, etc.
Arum: Nice point though. OK I will add $200k. You are guaranteed to receive $1.2M. Just fight Pac on March 13.
Clottey: Sounds fair to me.
Arum: OK. Ah, one more thing, I will make sure that your long time trainer will not be with you for this fight. So look for a new trainer.
Clottey: OK, I'll get de Jesus coz he is Pac's cutman before..this will add some intrigues come fight night.
Arum: OK. Be sure to make Pac look good during the fight. Your guaranteed purse is enough to pay the doctors for post-fight check-up.
Clottey: OK boss. Thanks for the opportunity. Thanks for my biggest payday.

:lol: :lol:

Once there was this kid who
Got into an accident and couldn't come to school
But when he finally came back
His hair had turned from black into bright white
He said that it was from when
The car had smashed so hard

Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm
Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm
