Pacquiao vs Clottey Fight Results: Pacquiao Wins in Round 12

The much awaited event, Pacquiao vs. Clottey, has already finished and as you already know in the title, Pacquiao won via unanimous decision in the 12th round.

Honestly speaking, it was not as interesting as it it should be since Clottey just blocked most of Pacquiao’s punches. Clottey did not take risks in the fight.

Pacquiao just kept on throwing Clottey with powerful punches and Clottey rarely answers back with the same punches.

Manny Pacquiao had a wound in his right eye after the fight but Clottey, since he keeps on blocking Pacquiaos punches didn’t have any visible wounds. In fact, the announcer said that Clottey’s number of punches did not even reach the average number of punches thrown by an average boxer in the Welterweight division. I don’t know why Clottey didn’t take risks in fighting Pacquiao. Maybe he’s too afraid because of Pacquiao’s reputation?

Oh well, let’s just see if the much awaited boxing event will push through with Pacquiao facing Mayweather. In the meantime, let’s see who will win in May 1 as Mosley faces Mayweather.
