WORLD'S BEST PAC-MAN DEVOURS ALL BEFORE HIM
by George Kimball, The Irish Times - Thursday, March 25, 2010
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Roach, who had all but guaranteed a Pac-Man KO, had based his assumption on a game plan predicated on his exhaustive study of Clottey’s tapes.

“I knew our best chance of knocking Clottey out would be to catch him when he’s throwing a punch,” said Roach. “But Clottey doesn’t like to punch while you’re throwing one.

“The plan was that Manny would throw a one-two and then step backward as if he were trying to get out. We knew that would bring Clottey in, and the instant Manny saw him start to throw his jab he was supposed to catch him with a hook on top of it.”

“But when I step back out, what if he doesn’t come in?” wondered Pacquiao.

“He will,” promised Roach.

But he didn’t. At least 10 times in 12 rounds Pacquiao baited the hook, and not once did Clottey rise to it, leading Roach to speculate on the presence of a mole.

Gee. You think?

“We did have one sparring partner from Ghana (Abullai Amidu),” Roach reflected the morning after the fight. “(Clottey and his corner) sure seemed to know what we were up to.”

Not that it did them a lot of good otherwise...."

Oh-oh. That spy could have been rich if Clottey won. He got paid by the information then bet heavily on Clottey to win. But Clottey decided to clam up and stay up til the end. The nearest connection we can get from Clottey to Pacquiao is his trainer Lenny de Jesus who was Manny's former cutman. lol

That mole would be very dangerous when Manny fights Floyd.
Everybody must get out of Pac's training and that includes Koncz, Manny's relatives and hangers-on. tsk tsk tsk
