Only one very interesting fight this week, coming on June 13th at Madison Square Garden in NY, and featuring two exciting fighters in Miguel Cotto of Puerto Rico and Joshua Clottey of Ghana 유클라우드 매니저 다운로드.
Cotto, 28, 33-1 (27), considered a knockout puncher, is coming off a tough and now a bit of a questionable loss to Antonio Margarito, and a somewhat boring comeback fight against Michael Jennings, who he was able to handle with ease.
Clottey, 32, 35-2 (20) is a tough boxer-puncher, who can beat you many ways. They have a common opponent in Margarito, who Clottey went the distance with, and Cotto was stopped in round 11.
This fight is for the WBO crown and, style wise, makes for an interesting clash.
Fighters from Ghana are tough, no doubt about that. But you can make that case for most Porto Rican fighters as well.
I can see a cut stopping this fight late, although neither has shown a great propensity for that. The fight will be made on the inside, giving Cotto enough of an edge to TKO Clottey in the later rounds. But this contest should be one of those must-see battles.
