So Clottey opted to play it safe and conservative in a professional game that requires him to show his skills and will. So what, then? Claiming the price of 3 Million USD after a mega-fight with The P4P King, Manny Pacquiao, is worth it but it is the way Clottey got his hands on the manna that he should be ashamed of. Clottey did not take chances. Do not blame his trainer, Lenny De Jesus, for that, the coach is convinced his fighter was not doing much to win the event. He reminded him that they are losing every round. It turned out his fighter was scared to suffer the same fate of the previous heavy names the P4P King dealt with. Clottey was the natural welterweight, Pac chased the weight. In all of the physical aspect, the Ghanian is the bigger fighter. His economical punch gave Pac a visible welt and lump on his right eye in the early rounds while he, Clottey, still appeared fresh after twelve rounds of enduring pure power punching from Pac.

"Bang, bang, bang..you want some more?" "Bang, Bang..you wanna throw sometime? "Bang, bang, bang!"

Jim Lampley's commentating on the event reinforced our thoughts that his network, HBO, will never ever bet their resources on Clottey again http://www.digitaljournal.com/article/289398. Sorry, man, you lost your chances by not taking any chances. It was a wrong strategy, if you went down fighting you would still have another day to fight. This is the end of the road for you. One way or another, Pac's professionalism retires them all!

No surprise! Even the entire Ghanians dropped him like a hot potato.
BTW, he just dropped by the nearest bank to collect his "hard-earned" dollars grinning widely I guess. LOL.
