Last night former IBF Welterweight champion Joshua Clottey scored a dominating victory over the very game and tough Jorge Silva on the undercard of the Canelo Alvarez- James Kirkland fight tonight in Houston, TX.
Clottey, 39-4 22KO’s, Accra, Ghana, started a little slowly but started warming up in round 3. Joshua scored with ripping combinations and started to hurt Silva who dropped to 20-9-2 16KO’s.
Clottey continued to press the action looking very sharp as Silva hung tough and tried his best to fight back but Clottey just had too much for Silva to handle. T
The scores were 100-90 on two cards and 98-92 on the third all in favor of Clottey who now his eyes set on the winner of the main event between Alvarez and Kirkland.
Clottey promoter Joe DeGuardia of Star Boxing had this to say about Joshua’s performance ” Once again Joshua showed that he is one of the top Jr. Middleweights in the world today. He fought a very tough kid in Silva and once his engines started revving he displayed the skill and power that made him a world champion. We definitely want to fight Saul “Canelo” Alvarez as Canelo Alvarez won and I believe Josh deserves this opportunity”.
