Manny Pacquiao nixes plan of playing in UNTV Cup amidst threat of PBA sanction



Senator Manny Pacquiao won’t be suiting up in the UNTV Cup for the Senate Defenders after all.

Avoiding possible sanctions from the PBA, Pacquiao opted not to pursue playing in the charity basketball league, a move that would violate his Uniform Players Contract (UPC) with the PBA.

Mahindra team manager Eric Pineda confirmed Pacquiao’s decision Monday.

The 37-year-old Pacquiao, who is coming out of retirement from boxing, is currently the Enforcers’ playing-coach. He has played in two games this conference and is averaging 2.0 points per contest. – INQUIRER.net
