Joshua Clottey To Return on The Chavez-Manfredo Bill

By Mike Coppinger

According to Top Rank's Carl Moretti, former champion Joshua Clottey will make his return to the ring against Calvin Green on November 19 in Houston, Tex. on the off-TV undercard of the HBO fight between Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Peter Manfredo at Reliant Arena.

Clottey (35-4, 20 KOs) will be making his debut at junior middleweight and fighting for the first time since his March 2010 loss to Manny Pacquiao, marking the end of an 18-month plus hiatus from the ring.

Clottey, 33, was originally slated to fight Green (21-6-1, 13 KOs) earlier this year, when he was forced to pull out due to injury.

Green is riding a two-bout losing streak with knockout losses to former Contender stars Sergio Mora and Alfonzo Gomez.

[QUOTE=Brother Jay;11329616]Oh Ike definitely lost some fights. He just didn't lose to DLH. That was one of Oscar's "golden gifts". Quartey easily won 8 out of the 12 rounds. DLH simply caught him with a flash knockdown in the 12…
