Joshua Clottey signs with Star Boxing for comeback

Jed Jacobsohn

Joe DeGuardia's Star Boxing has signed former welterweight titleholder and contender Joshua Clottey, who will return from a two-year absence in the near future.

Joshua Clottey hasn't been seen in the ring by anyone since 2011, and by most since 2010. Clottey, infamous for his dreadfully boring loss to Manny Pacquiao at Cowboys Stadium in March 2010, has signed with promoter Joe DeGuardia and Star Boxing, and will be back in the ring soon.

Clottey, who turns 36 in October, is scheduled on BoxRec for DeGuardia's show on September 14 in Huntington, New York, where he would face Dashon Johnson, a journeyman fighter with a record of 14-12-3 (5 KO), and the fight is listed for the time being as a 10-round middleweight bout.

Clottey (36-4, 22 KO) last fought on November 19, 2011, when he beat Calvin Green in Houston, on the off-TV undercard of the Chavez-Manfredo show. That was his final fight with Top Rank, and he's been on the sidelines since. There has also, to be fair, been essentially zero demand to see him fight since the egg he laid against Pacquiao, which unfortunately overshadowed tough challenges in the past to Miguel Cotto and Antonio Margarito, as well as his win over Zab Judah.

Do you think Clottey can work his way back into contention at 154 or 160?
