Joshua Clottey, Brother Emmanuel Clash in Family Feud

By Edward Chaykovsky

According to the Daily Guide, Emmanuel Clottey, the older brother of former champion Joshua Clottey, has accused the latter of stifling his boxing career.

Emmanuel, a junior welterweight boxer, claimed Joshua is roadblocking his attempts to make potential fights. Emmanuel says he returned home from the United Kingdom three years ago after he and Joshua had agreed that he (Emmanuel) should take care of their sick father. Emmanuel has a record of 36 wins, 15 by way of knockout, and nine defeats. He is currently preparing for an IBA intercontinental title fight.

“Times have changed and things are rougher now, so I have decided to review my career. But anytime I get close to getting a fight, my brother will stop it, not once or twice. He hasn't explained his actions to me, but I am hearing he says I have a psychological problem. It saddened me when I got to know that but our father has asked me to exercise restraint.

“He is now acting as my manager and stops every fight I land. It is managers who do that because they spend on boxers. Managers stop fights. Our father has invited him over to discuss the issue but he has turned a deaf ear to the matter. He enjoys seeing me chase him all the time for money, knowing very well that I am a family man and have responsibilities.

“I am going through a lot of challenges because I sacrificed my profession for our father. It has taken me a long time to break my silence on this issue."

I used to really like Clottey til I spent money to go watch him fight Pacquiao at Cowboys Stadium. The first big boxing event I ever attend and it was the most abysmal fight of the year. Not a fan…

Slow news day at boxing scene. The way the head-line sounds is as if they're actually going to FACE each other in a fight. WHO CARES either way.
