Manny Pacquiao returns to Solar Sports and GMA 7

As of yesterday, Manny Pacquiao is back to Solar Sports and of course GMA 7.

After Pacquiao announced on TV Patrol last Wednesday that he decided to choose ABS-CBN as its new media partner, Solar Sports had to do anything to win back Pacquiao, by of course, enforcing the contract made between Pacquiao and Solar Sports.

MANNY PACQUIAO STATEMENT (via his lawyer Atty. Franklin Gacal):

“Ang inyo pong lingkod, si Manny Pacquiao, ay nais iparating sa lahat na matapos ang masusing pag-aaral at pagtimbang-timbang namin ng Solar Entertainment Corporation napatunayan na ang kontrata tungkol sa TV Rights ng aking mga laban ay valid and binding at hindi nilabag nino man."

“Dahil po dito ay taos puso akong humihingi ng paumanhin kung kayo man ay naguluhan kung saan ipapalabas ang aking darating na laban kay Ricky Hatton. Ito po ay resulta lang ng hindi pagkaka-intindihan sa pagitan ng Solar Entertainment Corporation at MP Promotions. Sana ay maunawaan ng lahat."

"Simula sa araw na ito ay nais kong mag-concentrate nang husto na lang sa aking training para sa aking darating na laban ngayong Mayo 2."

“Yan po ang mangyayari po. Ang laban po ay nanatili sa Solar Sports at ipapalabas sa GMA 7."


“Solar Entertainment Corporation, Manny Pacquiao and MP Promotions, are happy to announce that in the spirit of utmost good faith, the parties have favorably resolved their unfortunate misunderstanding. Manny and MP Promotions have agreed to honor the television rights agreement and fully comply with the terms and conditions therein.”

“We are happy that now he can concentrate on preparing for his fight with Ricky Hatton on May 3 to be shown on GMA-7 and Solar Sports. Preparation for the fight should be his priority.”


"Manny Pacquiao approached ABS-CBN to be his media partner in airing his next fights. We thank him for trusting us. He signed a contract with us, but we will not stand in the way if he decides to change his mind. We respect it, wish him good luck and we wait to hear from him."
