Days after being dropped by Nike due to his abhorrent comments against members of LGBT community, Manny Pacquiao has found his new partner.

PHOTOS of Manny Pacquiao wearing Under Armour's basketball shoes popularized by NBA MVP Stephen Curry has stirred excitement online and spurred speculation that the boxing hero has found a new shoe and apparel partner, days after being dropped by Nike.



Meanwhile, a member of the Pacquiao camp was quick to deny on Monday that the eight-division world champion has hooked up with Under Armour on a new endorsement deal, although he admitted that they are in the middle of negotiations with different sports apparel brands.

Pacquiao’s showbiz manager and endorsement agent, Arnold Vegafria, said that they haven’t struck a deal with Under Armour, although they can say that they are already in the middle of negotiations with different sports apparel brands.

For the first time, during a pick-up game in a gym located inside his mansion in General Santos City, Pacquiao was pictured wearing a pair of basketball kicks not produced by Nike, his endorsement partner for over a decade.

His partnership with Nike ended last week after the boxing hero made comments against members of the LGBT community.

But Haplas Fernandez, Pacquiao’s head of staff and brother of his assistant trainer, told Spin.ph that the Filipino hero wearing Under Armour shoes doesn’t necessarly mean their boss has already found a new sponsor. He said that Pacquia doesn’t have a new endorsement for shoes yet. He just wore those shoes for the game. But those aren’t sponsored yet. When asked if where Pacquiao got those shoes, he answered the they were bought in the US when they were there. He got a pair when his son asked him to buy them because he idolizes Steph Curry.

Fernandez, meanwhile, bared that Pacquiao is still expected to wear his Nike shoes when he spars with Ghislain Madumba on Tuesday afternoon. He said that Pacquiao would still wear his Nike shoes. Even when they go jogging, he still wears those shoes.

At the moment, Vegrafria refused to divulge the brands they are currently negotiating with. He said that they are still talking to them and will tell everyone about it as soon as they have closed the deal.
