Lost Fight Because Of Banku and Okro Soup - Clottey

Joshua “Grand Master” Clottey, lost an uneventful 12-round decision on March 13th to pound for pound king, Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao, and gave his explanations to why he lost the fight to the Filipino boxing icon. In an interview, Clottey believes his lost to Pacquiao, was partly due to having multiple stomach aches and diarrhea after consuming Banku and Okro stew hours before his fight with Pacquiao. He suspected an ingredient used in preparing the local Ghanaian dish he ordered to be prepared for him to eat as possible cause for the diarrhea. “When I ate after the weighing I was ‘running’; the midnight I went to toilet almost like four times; in the morning I went to toilet almost like three times; when we went to the dressing room I went to toilet like three times,” he explained.
