Repost: HBO Bows Out as Media Partner for Next Pacquiao Fight

HBO has officially stepped away from Manny Pacquiao. The Filipino superstar recently announced his return to the ring, and will take on Jessie Vargas on November 5th. This announcement didn't exactly light the world on fire, especially against such an unheralded opponent (though he is the WBO welterweight champ). But in an unexpected move, the PPV won't be distributed by HBO. Top Rank promoter Bob Arum confirmed that to Ring TV: "Definitely it’s not going to be HBO. HBO had a contract and decided to pass because it was two weeks in front of their Ward-Kovalev fight." While that is true, there's more to it. HBO has relinquished the rest of their contractual right to Pac's fights with this move.

  2. Well, considering the huge decline in ratings from his last fight, it's no surprise HBO will drop him on this one...

    1. It's not the ratings. US media doesn't like homophobes. HBO is Pro-Gay and Good for them.

  4. Gahaman kasi. Sana wala ng manuod sa kanya. Pinaglololoko lang ang mga tao. Imagine Senador na nagboboxing pa rin. Hindi naisip na mataas na posisyon nya sa gobyerno.

  5. Sinayang lang ni Pacquaio ang legacy na pinaghirapan nyang maabot. All for the love of fame and fortune.

    1. So true. Masyado na syang gahaman sa pera at kapangyarihan nya. Tapos ginagamit pa nya si God. Tsk tsk... Pumasok sya sa pulitika dahil lang din sa pera, kung totoong anak ka ng diyos at nasa panginoon ka hndi ka magiging gahaman.

  6. Pacquiao is sill reaping what he said about gay people I think. It didnt sit well with the international press

  7. Tsk tsk tsk...The truth of the matter is no one cares about him anymore in the boxing world. After the Mayweather fight deadma na ang mga tao. Mga pinoy lang may paki nung last fight nya. He should have retired when he was on top. Now that is going out with a bang (*mike drop). But no, because he is greedy both for fame and money, sinayang nya lang ang legacy nya. Now he will retire as laos and talunan.

  8. Read somewhere na kaya siya lalaban ulit ay dahil sa pera. Boxing daw kasi ang source of income niya, at sinusuportahan niya ang napakalaki niyang pamilya at pamilya ng asawa niya. Di daw kikitain sa politics (sweldo as senador) ang pangtustos sa mga gastusin.

    After niyang mangako noon na priority niya ang senado pag nanalo siya, isang kembot lang napako agad!! Yan kasi daming shunga na binoto siya.

  17. This is karma for him and his greedy family. Nobody cares about boxing anymore. Specially when everyone knows it's so fixed. It's all about MMA and UFC now. He should've stayed retired and worked on being a Senator just like he promised. I hope no one watches and I actually hope he loses. Maybe then he'll get off his high horse and be a bit humble.

  18. Pacquiao ahould have retired after the Mayweather fight and then probably wait for a special fight comeback, with Mayweather perhaps. Masyadong greedy tingin ko kay Pacquaio ngayon, takot na makalkmutan ng mga tao na boxer sya (for political motives) and nanghihinayang sa kikitain. Ill-advised din, masyadong nagpabola kay Arum. Arum of course would say all the right words sa kanya kasi kay Pacquiao lang sya kumikita ng malaki.

    HBO's decision is just right. Ilang fights na ni Pacman ang mababa ang ratings and pay-per-view subscribers. Baka nga pati MGM nagdadalawang-isip na to accommodate him. Pacquaio could have retired when he was at his peak, that way graceful exit sya. Ngayon, magreretire sya na laughing stock, with a somewhat negative image, and a has-been sports hero

  19. ayan... KARMA
    instead of going out with a BANG
    going out with a pfffffft

    2. Dati kasi low-profile sya who doesn't shoot for the moon. He has somewhat changed. Pero I am still proud of the sports icon he once was. Ngayon, all for show and money na lang. He has downgraded himself to a an entertainment icon.

      Delete
    3. Totoo yon. Dati kasi so proud na ipagmalaki sya dahil mapagkumbaba. Naakalungkot ngayon na kinain na ng kasikatan ang pagkatao nya.. at yon ang nakaka disappoint.

    4. He did that to himself noh kaya ganyan ang tingin ng mga tao sa kanya. Hindi ka pa ba maiinis na sya ang may pinakaraming absences sa Kongreso. Take note sinusweldohan pa sya (galing sa tax mo).

      Tapos nag promise mag retire pag nanalo sa senado, and then hindi pala... babalik pala sa boxing. haaay.

  21. Nasira ang career nya dahil sa Mayweather fight na walang kwenta. Hindi nya dapat nilabanan si Mayweather at nakasira lang sa image nya.

    1. Hindi rin. Nasira sya kasi after the Mayweather fight sobrang walang bearing na yung mga sumunod nyang fights na pinatulan na lang nya ng pinatulan.

    2. Eh di yun nga din yun 3:32. Nasira sya after Mayweather.

      Delete
    3. 9:09, magkaiba. Yung unang comment sabi nya sa Mayweather fight. Yung sumunod, after the Maywrather fight.

  24. Manny with all his flaws is still superior than the crooks in uniform in both houses. We know he earns his keep fair and square, something that can't be said sa mga ultra rich sa government. Panget Lang pero maganda at Malinis Ang kalooban

    1. Totoo I remember those days na sobrang excited kami manood sa laban ni Manny. Kaya lang ang excitement nawala na hindi na siya big deal, dati nagbabayad kami sa pay per view and last fight ni Manny hindi na kami nag order. May nag bago sa kanya parang hindi na siya kasing humble as before. Sa Senate ok lang naman siya nakakasagot naman siya. Isa siya sa pro death penalty kaya ok lang. Kasi hanggat walang death penalty patayan sa karasada iyan. At least kapag ibalik na iyan may legal actions na para sa mga convicted at meron ng court cases lalo na sa mahihirap.

  28. Pag natalo na sya, makikitang wala naman talagang mataas na respeto da kanya sa larangan ng politika, di sya pang senado, counsilor lang dapat.

  29. His decline started when he likened gay people to animals. There is no other reason. The entertainment industry which he is a part of has very influential GLBT backers and are intolerant of those who put them down

  30. Pwde naman tumulong sa kapwa kung gugustuhin kahit wala ka pusisyon sa g0byrno. Tapos magboboxing ka, eh alm nmn isang sugal yun yan ba ang nasa panginoon? Hahaha

  31. Manny, wala ka talagang word of honor. Sabi mo mag retire ka na sa boxing. Kumuha ka lang pala ng simpatiya sa publiko para botohan ka. Buti nlng di kita binoto dahil ramdam ko ang pgka insincere mo.

    Nanalo ka na, marami ka na ring pera, naging senador ka na at pastor pa. Ano ba ang gusto mo? Hindi mo lang inuto ang mga tao kundi pati sarili mo!

    You're such a selfish person to push thru with this fight. 3 months ka pa lang as Senator, wala pa ngang nagawa eh training na agad ang nasa utak mo. Bakit? Dahil sa pera na naman?

    I used to admire you pero when you mix boxing with politics, gamitin mo naman ang utak mo oi! Try to prove us wrong. Pero hindi eh. You're just proving to us na tama ang nakita namin sa yo. Selfish, money-lover, insincere person who doesn't practice what he preached.
