The official details of how exactly Manny Pacquiao is working with Al Haymon and how he is going to finish his boxing career promotion-wise have been released by Manny and Haymon’s PR team today.
It will be Manny’s own promotional who will promote him which could see more fights in Asia take place again after a successful promotion of his recent Lucas Matthysse TKO win in Malaysia.
Here’s what he had to say today:
“I’m very excited about this new chapter in my career and I’m looking forward to a fresh start. I’m reinvigorated by the prospects of bringing up new fighters under the MP Promotions banner,” said Pacquiao. “My team will work closely with Al Haymon for the remainder of my career to deliver the most anticipated fights with the top PBC fighters. Those are the fights the fans want to see and the ones I want to have to close out my career.”
He went on to say:
“MP Promotions is very excited about this last phase of Senator Manny’s Hall of Fame Career. We look forward to launching this new relationship with Manny’s first world title defense,” said Joe Ramos, who heads MP Promotions. “I would also like to acknowledge matchmaker Sean Gibbons, legal counsel Tom Falgui, and Senator Manny’s aide Steve Jumalon for their tireless efforts and invaluable advice.”
There you have it.
That’s how it’s exactly going to happen and who is exactly involved.
All we are waiting on now is an official date and venue for an expected fight against Adrien Broner this coming January.
All in all, a pretty smart move from all parties involved.
It is thought that Pacquiao will have at least 2 more fights in 2019 before he hangs up the gloves on an iconic career.
