Roach’s decision to bar anyone from getting a sneak-peak into Pacquiao’s training is a sign that they are not taking Clottey for granted. The gym will be closed for several hours – 12 noon until 4 p.m. – possibly until March 8 the day Pacquiao departs for Dallas, Texas, site of his 12-round defense of the World Boxing Organization welterweight crown. Pacquiao was supposed to train last Thursday but since he and Roach were coming off the tiring Dallas-New York press tour, the trainer told his prized pupil to take the day off. Meanwhile, tickets to the fight – priced at $700, $500, $400, $300, $200, $100 and $50 are selling fast. Reports from the US show that half of the 40,000 tickets have been gobbled up by Pacquiao fans. The 100,000-seat Cowboys Stadium will be reconfigured to 40,000. “There’s not a single bad seat in the stadium,” said Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum.
