Clottey, now fighting at 154 pounds, a weight he described as his best, will take on Australian Anthony Mundine in their WBA international bout at Newcastle, Australia, on April 2.
The former International Boxing Federation (IBF) welterweight champion described the forthcoming bout to DAILY GUIDE SPORTS as a breakthrough.
Responding to how ready he was? a few minutes after his workout at the Accra-based Attoh Quarshie Gym last Friday, he said, ?I am ready my brother, I have been working out seriously, and today?s session should tell you the importance I have attached to this fight.
?I have so much respect for my opponent, but the fact that victory will offer me an opportunity to return to the top gives me added motivation.
?My trainer and I have gone very far by way of training. What we are waiting for now are the visas. The moment we receive them, we will leave for the bout,? he added.
Clottey, with an outstanding 14-year career, has overpowered former World Champions like Zab Judah and Diego Corrales.
Most recently, Mundine, 46-5-0 (27KO?s), won a 10 round unanimous decision over Gunnar Jackson last January. He has also defeated boxing legend Shane Mosley via a seven-round stoppage.
