Pacquiao to fight Clottey at Cowboys Stadium 3/13/10

Manny Pacquiao will take on Ghana’s Joshua Clottey at Cowboys Stadium, promoter Bob Arum and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones announced the deal a day after Arum attended the Cowboys’ NFL playoff victory over Philadelphia at the stadium on Saturday night. The stadium is set to host the NBA All-Star Game in February and the 2011 Super Bowl among other major sporting events.

Jones had put the facility forward as a venue for the anticipated fight March 13 between Pacquiao and unbeaten American Floyd Mayweather.That super-fight fell through last week over a disagreement on the drug testing protocol, and Arum lined up Clottey for Pacquaio’s World Boxing Organization welterweight title defense.

Pacquiao is set to defend his World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight title in the pay-per-view event.
