This is ABS-CBN News’ statement regarding Manny Pacquiao’s allegation that ABS-CBN aired his announcement without his consent.

We are surprised by Manny Pacquiao's statement that ABS-CBN News broke a supposed embargo.

Here are the facts:

On March 14, Manny Pacquiao recorded a statement that he asked be embargoed. That statement has never aired.

On March 17, he recorded another statement saying that he came to ABS-CBN to air his next fights. He later approved that statement for airing, and our newscasts aired it on Wednesday, March 18.

On March 19, in an interview while training, he asked viewers to support him and watch his fight on ABS-CBN.

On March 20, Pacquiao again declared in an ABS-CBN interview that "my decision [is] still the same. Fight mapapanood sa ABS-CBN."

We respond because this charge strikes at our core values as a news organization: honest reporting and respect for our sources. Regardless, we continue to report on Manny Pacquiao's activities and respect his decision to enter into any arrangement with any company regarding his fights.
