Jordan Clarkson Has A Future In The Ring Says Manny Pacquiao
MANNY PACQUIAO – Retired boxing legend Manny Pacquiao thinks Utah Jazz guard Jordan Clarkson has a future in the ring.
With 62 victories, seven losses, and two draws in his career, Manny Pacquiao has established himself as a tremendous boxer. In 2016, Pacquiao was ranked No. 2 in ESPN’s list of the top 25 pound-for-pound fighters over the previous 25 years.
The Pinoy boxing legend was named Fighter of the Decade in the 2000s. When he faced Floyd Mayweather in a hyped-up match in 2015, he had reached the pinnacle of his boxing career. As a senator for the Philippines since 2016, Pacquiao has demonstrated his versatility outside of the ring. Pacman also played basketball professionally in the Philippines.
After Utah Jazz guard Jordan Clarkson tried to square up against Golden State Warriors’ Jonathan Kuminga during their game on Wednesday, Manny Pacquiao jokingly said that Clarkson would have a future in boxing.
In the waning seconds of the Jazz’s 124-123 victory over Golden State, Clarkson and Kuminga got into a fight that led to Clarkson’s ejection.

In a remark made on a post by the US sports website Bleacher Report, Manny Pacquiao discussed Clarkson’s fighting stance. “I see potential,” quipped Pacman.
The Jazz was able to pull off the victory despite Clarkson’s absence in the decisive moments as they scored five straight points in the game’s final 12 seconds. With a 15-12 record, the Jazz is currently sixth in the West.
Prior to Clarkson’s dispute with Kuminga, he had just been slapped with a US$15,000 fine for throwing his headband into an empty seat during the Jazz’s game against the Portland Trailblazers.
A former NBA Sixth Man of the Year, Clarkson is expected to play for Gilas Pilipinas when the Philippines hosts the FIBA World Cup next year.
