MANILA, Philippines — It’s just another day at the office for Manny Pacquiao amid a lawsuit with a global sports agency and feud with President Rodrigo Duterte.

In a YouTube video by Team Pacquiao on Tuesday, Pacquiao kept his focus on his training at his gym in General Santos City.


Pacquiao has been making headlines—both as a boxer and senator—for various reasons especially this week.


On Sunday, Paradigm Sports Management filed a breach of contract lawsuit that seeks to stop Pacquiao’s upcoming world title showdown with two-belt champion Errol Spence.

Paradigm Sports chief Audie Attar claimed his team has been already planning a Pacquiao-Mikey Garcia bout before the Filipino ring legend announced his August 21 clash with Spence in Las Vegas.

The 42-year-old Pacquiao shrugged off the lawsuit, describing it as just a form of distraction as he prepares for his fight against Spence.

Outside the ring, Pacquiao has been in a back-and-forth exchange with Duterte with the eight-division champion accepting the President’s challenge to expose corrupt government agencies in the current administration.
