The rt hon Wacko isn't going to be about this evening for his usual RBR, so I figured we'd kick up a little chat, sort a few issues amongst the welterweights and see if any of these guys might have the stones to take their title in with the toast of the boxing town at the moment, Antonio Margarito.
Standing a record of 34-2, 20KOs is Joshua Clottey, well travelled and with plenty of experience including wins over Diego Corrales and ending the unbeaten records of Richard Gutierrez and Shamone Alvarez. Throwing in bursts from behind a good guard, Clottey will be looking to make his second world title shot a winning one, after coming up short in his last attempt against Margarito in 2006, breaking his hand in the process.
Zab Judah (36-5, 25KOs) is without doubt one of those boxers who inspires a reaction in everyone, be it the negative as many people hold these days, or the positives when people saw judah racking up the wins as a young light welterweight champion. Judah hasn't exactly thrilled the world in his last two fights, both wide points wins against mediocre opposition. Without ifs or buts, after an up and down career, surely this would be Judah's last chance at a world title should he fail, but perhaps that will motivate him to excel once more.
Seeya later folks.
