Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao has signed a personal endorsement deal with global sportswear brand Anta 

The annoucement of the deal comes nine months after Pacquiao was dropped by Nike for homophobic remarks after which he publicly apologised. He will wear the Chinese company’s sportswear products during training and in competitive games.

Anta Sports Products Limited announced in a statement that Pacquiao signed the endorsement deal in a ceremony at Wynn Las Vegas on Nov. 2.

Undoubtedly Anta is very professional in the research and development of boxing products as well as the promotion of boxing events. I am looking forward to advocating professional boxing with Anta around the world,” said Pacquiao.

Pacquiao is not only a great boxer, but he serves as a great role model for all sports enthusiasts. He is strict with his training routine and never gives up, which is in keeping with the brand spirit of Anta. Furthermore, Anta and Pacquiao are determined to inspire all customers to continue to ‘Fight On’,” said Anta brand president Zheng Jie.
