I thought the deal of 147-lbs for welterweight limit will be the base weight of Pacquiao-Clottey fight. I just read the news in Philippine Yahoo News today that the team Pacquiao will going to push a catch-weight of 145-lbs same as Pacquiao-Cotto fight before because it seems like Joshua Clottey is more bigger than Pacquiao. According to one of the Pacquiao's Lawyer said that he will be going to push a catch-weight of 145-lbs for Pacquiao Vs Clottey bout even Coach Freddie Roach already said that there is no catch-weight for the Pacquiao-Clottey fight but this lawyer insist to push a catch-weight 145-lbs. I don't know if Clottey's camp agree with this catch-weight deal.
Meanwhile, Coach Freddie Roach said before that Manny Pacquiao is comfortable to fight 147-lbs which is exactly the first weight deal of the fight. As we can see Manny Pacquiao in his big shape. I think Freddie Roach has this point to just make it 147-lbs for Pacquiao Vs Clottey bout. He wants to see and make Manny Pacquiao into a real welterweight fighter. Roach knows how Manny can adopt any size or any weight as long as Manny feels comfortable with that. I guess there is no changes in 147-lbs weight fight deal for Pacquiao Vs Clottey because I think Coach Freddie Roach has a incredible plan for Manny Pacquiao to make a real welterweight fighter. He knows that Pacquiao would agree to his plan. We will see what happen to this plan and we will follow them and we will get some updates.
