Manfredo Jr. Clocks Pemberton

13.02.06 - By Jim Amato: I was very impressed with Peter Manfredo Jr.'s third round stoppage of the formidable Scott Pemberton. Now that Peter is with Freddie Roach, he looks terrific. There is talk of a third match with "Contender" champion Sergio Mora in Peter's back yard of Providence, Rhode Island. I hope it comes off. I feel that Sergio won their first fight but Peter was robbed in the rematch. These two need to settle their differences. I believe this bout will draw well. Roach has really done wonders with Manfredo Jr. Freddie is really one of the top five trainers around today. If Manfredo Jr.- Mora III is made, my pick is Peter.

With all that said. I hope that the Manfredo Jr. camp has no intention on taking on Jeff Lacy after he defeats Joe Calzaghe. It would be a big money fight and a real fan attraction but there is no way Peter hangs with Lacy. Jeff would be way too strong for Peter and he hits like a ton of bricks.

Manfredo Jr. would be better off going after one of the other 168 pound titleholders and steering very clear of Lacy.
