In a brutal fight, WBO #4 welterweight contender Joshua Clottey (31-2, 20 KOs) spoiled the welterweight debut of former two-division world champion Diego Corrales (40-5, 33 KOs), who was leaping two weight classes on Saturday night at the Shrine Mosque in Springfield, Missouri. Fighting in a proverbial phone booth, Clottey worked over Corrales in rounds one and two, bloodying Chico's nose and connecting with numerous uppercuts. Clottey continued to land clean shots in the third while Corrales had some success to the body. Clottey then seemed to slow down slightly and there was good two-way action in the fourth through seventh rounds. Clottey seemed to hurt Corrales at the end of the eighth round, and Clottey's violent attack in round nine floored Corrales and left him returning to his corner bleeding above the right eye. Clottey floored Corrales again in the tenth and Diego was docked one point for spitting out his mouthpiece by referee Mike England. Scores were 97-90, 98-89, 100-87.

HOLY CRAP... well... that's either the end of Diego Corrales (that's 5 losses now and those 5 have come in the last 6 years) at just the age of 29... OR... he can go back down to Lightweight or... as I'd much rather prefer... back down to Super Featherweight.:mad:

Please dont say you where surprised :dunno:

I donmt know to many people that thought Corrales was gonna win.

If he could make 140 he should try that if not he should probably retire.

exactly what I was thinking last night . Corrales is making Margie look good Margie walked right thru the shots from Clottey no sweat and Corrales was getting mugged
the way it looks right now Cotto is in big trouble Clottey has the style to beat cotto

Clottey is a threat to any fighter at 147. I think a lot of guys might start ducking this guy. I think he even broke Corrales's jaw. He said he was going to go have his jaw checked after the fight. I think this guys are to big for Corrales. RETIRE CORRALES!!!!!!!!

He looked good against Guitterez on HBO a while back & had only 1 controversial DQ loss on his record going into the Margarito fight.

So I dont know why he hadnt gotten more attention in the last year or so. He looks to be a threat for a title within the next year. The only champion not with a scheduled fight would be Cintron & that would be a war.

Clottey vs Cintron by the end of the year :dunno:

a WAR I THINK NOT Cintron has shown befoe that he will lay down if properly motivated and Clottey I think has to much power and a good chin after walking thru Cintrons shots he would simply apply pressure till Cintron gave way.

People can question Margie all they want but you have to give the guy credit he never gave up against Clottey and took many shots Corrales is a quality guy and world class at #135 ,140 and got destroyed the big difference in this fight from the margie fight was I think margie got Clottey's respect and slowed him down where Chico had nothing for him and Clottey walked right thru his shots.

Corrales was never world class at 140. He never fought there.

I think both Cintron & Clottey are abit underated(Well Clottey was before last weekend).

Cintron has been in some good action fights since the margarito disaster. So I think it has the potential to be a good pick em fight or war/slugfest.

Im sorry, but what fight were you watching? Clottey was making Margarito look silly until hurting his hand midway through that fight!

well taking chance on stating the obvious Clottey was looking good in the first few rounds but to say that he was making margie borders on fantasy I agree that margie took way to many shots and looked rusty but he never looked out of the fight and pressed the issue the whole fight thats why he pulled it out.he bever was hurt and landed a fair amount of punches on Clottey as well that slowed him down. Injury or not we all have seen guys with real desire come out and press a fight. I did see the fight and expected more form margie and less from Clottey maybe thats what you were looking for as well sometime we watch a fight and the result is not what we expected a no name guys gets more credit and the named guy gets less for not living up to our expectations.

now as far as the world class at #140 your right I assuemed that he would be if he ever fought there. but maybe not anymore.

chico should have started his career at 140, its not the wars thats finished him its been killing himself all the years to make weight at 130-135.

clotey is a damn good fighter, id like to see him face cotto. id think clottey might just win that fight.

I agree, but I sure am glad I got to see his wars of should I say war with Castillo. Corrales looked huge on Sat. night. Can't believe he could have even made 130.

i have to agree with windowguy here captain,the fight was close at the half way point. it wasn't just clottey who broke his hand although margie haters would have you think this. margie also broke his han and damaged his shoulder which required surgery im led to beleive. boxing was survival of the fittest the last time im checked and tony came through in the end against another damn good fighter.

This fight could make a good argument for the fighters to weight in the morning of the day of the fight I mean corrales went up to 160 and clottey was 170 no wonder he got his ass kicked,not to take anything away from clottey he is good and did what he had to,but still not everyone's metabolisism is the same, a lot of time bettween the weight in and the fight will give some one the edge
