  • This bout, labeled "The Event", came together after the super-fight between Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. fell through due to disputes over the type of drug testing that would take place leading up the fight.
  • Due to his normal trainer being unable to secure a visa to enter the United States, for the first time Clottey was trained by Lenny DeJesus

Bout Summary

The largely one-sided bout saw Pacquiao throw combinations against a heavily defensive Joshua Clottey. Pacquiao's volume of punches seemed to keep Clottey from opening up and attempting to mount much offensively other than an occasional right hand. [2]
