Pacquiao Rep: Dana White's Info 100% False on NIKE

By Rick Reeno

Fred Sternburg, the publicist for eight division world champion Manny Pacquiao, has denied the information contained in a recently published report on MMA Weekly, where UFC President Dana White stated that sportswear giant NIKE had dropped Pacquiao in favor of starting a multi-year relationship with UFC champion Jon Jones.

“They’re shutting down the Manny Pacquiao line and starting up the Jon Jones line,” White revealed. “I don’t know why they shut down the Pacquiao line, but they did and that (expletive) was selling like hot cakes. I got Manny Pacquiao (expletive) from Nike.”

Not so fast says Sternburg, who completely denies the information provided by White. According to MMA Weekly's report, White made those comments when he spoke with members of the media following Saturday's UFC 150 pay-per-view.

"It's 100% false. The relationship between Manny and NIKE has never been better," Sternburg told BoxingScene.com.
