Clottey hasn't, but that's pretty misleading. He's a top-5 147lber. (or, at the bare minimum, was) & a very legitimate challenge to almost any natural Welter out there. For Pacquiao to come up & beat him with room to spare is no joke.
Thats a fair point, but its mostly the accomplishment of becoming the "man", Clottey is a good WW and simply never does enough to win and is outside the elite, the Paul Williams win was much superior thats plain to see.
