Pacquiao back to Solar Sports. What about GMA 7?
With Manny Pacquiao’s decision to ditch Solar Sports and sign up with ABS CBN, and finally to go back to Solar Sports again because of a lawsuit in the offing. Especially when Solar Sports president William Tieng, chief operating officer Peter Chanliong and lawyer Enrique dela Cruz flew to the U.S. to a private conversation with the Filipino Champ.
Solar Sports lawyer later released a formal announcement saying that Pacquiao is acknowledging the contract and has no intention to work with other media partners for the exclusive coverage of the Hatton-Pacquiao fight. Since the contract with Solar ends 2011. With this, Pacquiao apologized to everyone for the confusion and although he’s not admitting it, he appeared to be quite indecisive at this point in his life. Perhaps, he just got into a sticky situation because of other people’s influence on him.
Now that ABS CBN is out of the picture, Hatton-Pacquiao fight will now be seen at GMA 7 since they had previous talks with Solar Sports. If you can recall, the only reason how GMA 7 got the exclusivity to air the Dela Hoya-Pacquiao fight was when the said network bought rights from Solar Sports. And as we all know, Solar Sports and ABS CBN got into a disagreement before when ABS CBN decided to exclude Solar’s cable channels from Sky Cable.
Pacquiao is trying to distant himself from the media especially ABS CBN. Even Diane Castillejo, who always get exclusive interviews with the Pound for Pound king, couldn’t get anything from him. His bodyguards are always on the way. Well, this is also a good move to help him focus on his up and coming fight.
Moral lesson: Wag pacquiao-in lahat. Do not be greedy. Hehe. 🙂
