Pacquiao: Sean still my main man at MP


SEAN GIBBONS remains as the main man of MP Promotions, ring icon and former senator Manny Pacquiao affirmed on Wednesday.

“He [Gibbons] still represents MP Promotions. Of course I order him to represent us in dealings abroad, in the US, if there’s a potential bout,” Pacquiao told BusinessMirror during the Alaxan FR Grand Media Event “The Showdown of the Year ‘’ which he graced with Tokyo Olympics gold medalist Hidilyn Diaz-Naranjo at the Unilab Bayanihan Center in Pasig City.

“There are no issues between me and Sean,” Pacquiao added.

Gibbons is the subject of a social media attack that say he’s no longer involved with MP Promotions—MP being Manny Pacquiao—which he heads as president.

Pacquiao said he got wind of the attack on Gibbons during last week’s 23rd Gabriel Flash Elorde Boxing Awards Banquet of Champions at the Okada Grand Ballroom in Parañaque City.

The eight-division world champion said a man, who Pacquiao said introduced himself as a vlogger, approached him and told him that Gibbons was “making decisions that he isn’t aware of.”

“Someone told me that [Sean] Gibbons has made a decision that I have no knowledge of, then I replied to him that I have no idea what his question was all about,” Pacquiao said. “So why do I answer if I don’t know what exactly it was? I don’t have any problem with him.”

Gibbons is negotiating a comeback fight for Pacquiao in June in Abu Dhabi where he will face in a welterweight bout Briton Conor Benn.
