Joshua Clottey Demands Rematch With Carlos Baldomir
New York, January 9 - DiBella Entertainment's welterweight sensation Joshua Clottey (28-1, 18 KO's) is capable of beating any welterweight in the world. Clottey has reeled off nine consecutive victories and has his eyes set on a world championship. The only blemish on Clottey's impressive record came on November 29, 1999 when he was disqualified for a low blow in the eleventh round against current WBC Welterweight Champion Carlos Baldomir.. Clottey was dominating the fight when he was disqualified with no previous warning. Six years later the controversial loss still leaves a sour taste in his mouth. Now, more than ever, Clottey wants to avenge that loss in a rematch with Baldomir. Currently, Clottey is ranked #3 by the World Boxing Organization and #6 by the World Boxing Council.

"Since his loss to Baldomir, Joshua has come back with a vengeance with DBE," said Lou DiBella, president of DiBella Entertainment. "His loss to Baldomir was a disputed disqualification. Joshua was disqualified in the eleventh round when he had not received a single warning for any infraction the entire fight and he deserves a rematch."
The highly regarded native of Ghana proved once again on December 3, 2005 that he is a force to be reckoned with. On the Taylor- Hopkins II undercard, Clottey stepped in the ring against Marcos Primera for the vacant WBC Continental Americas Light Middleweight Title. Clottey dominated the bout for ten straight rounds landing combinations early and often. He won a unanimous decision winning every round on all three judges' scorecards.
In 2006, Clottey is looking to challenge Carlos Baldomir, Antonio Margarito, Zab Judah or Cory Spinks. "I will beat any of them, anytime, any place", stated Clottey. "I am afraid of no one."
