Pacquiao_Clottey__B_418236bHD2 takes absolutely no credit for our client’s success in the ring.  However, we are always proud to share the recognition he so richly deserves – being named “Boxer of the Decade” by the Boxing Writers Association of America and “Fighter of the Year” by ESPN.com.  He matches Muhammad Ali and Evander Holyfield by winning his third fighter of the year award. 

Manny Pacquiao, who will be presented with his third Sugar Ray Robinson trophy in the past four years, heads the list of honorees who will be invited to receive their awards on June 11 in New York at the BWAA’s 85th annual banquet.  Pacquiao, who was also named 2009 fighter of the year by ESPN.com and The Ring magazine, won the award in balloting by the organization’s membership over nominees Vitali Klitschko, Andre Ward, Paul Williams and Arthur Abraham.Pacquiao (50-3-2, 38 KOs), whose first world title came at flyweight, scored a second-round knockout of Ricky Hatton on May 2 to win the world junior welterweight championship and stopped Miguel Cotto in the 12th round on Nov. 14 to win a welterweight world title.
