This Saturday we will witness the WBO Welterweight title fight between Manny Pacquiao vs. Joshua Clottey. Manny Pacquiao arrived in Dallas on a charter plane on Monday with an entourage of about 130 people in tow. A crowd of about half that many on Tuesday encircled Joshua Clottey – his opponent on Saturday in their HBO Pay-Per-View bout for the World Boxing Organization welterweight championship at Cowboys Stadium – in the lobby of the hotel where Clottey is staying. The event should make for very interesting Boxing odds and Boxing betting lines at SBGGlobal.com.
Jerry Jones was one of the nearly 70,000 people who packed the New Orleans Superdome to watch the 1978 heavyweight title fight between Muhammad Ali and Leon Spinks. Jones is bringing “big” back to boxing Saturday when his new Cowboys Stadium hosts the Manny Pacquiao-Joshua Clottey welterweight title fight. In doing so, he is making a move to reconnect the sport with its mostly blue-collar base, 45,000 fans at a time. The fight is in suburban Arlington, Texas, smack dab in the middle of the nearly seven-million-population Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex and centrally located to millions more in the nation’s second largest state.
Tickets are as low as $50. While fifty bucks is nothing to brush off, it’s fairly reasonable considering it’s a chance to see the world’s best pound-for-pound fighter live. At present the Boxing line on the WBO Title Fight at SBGGlobal.com is on the money line (ML) and Pacquiao is -600 while Clottey is +400. There are also lines on Total Rounds which is in the form of an Over/under, and many proposition wagers.
Pacquiao (50-3-2, 38 KOs), generally considered the world’s top pound-for-pound fighter, will meet Clottey (35-3, 21 KOs) at Cowboys Stadium in front of a huge crowd lured by Pacquiao’s star power and reasonably priced tickets — a bonus that particularly appeals to Pacquiao, who rose from abject poverty to the pinnacle of his sport.
Can Joshua Clottey beat Manny Pacquiao?
