Mark Magsayo recently signed with Manny Pacquiao’s MP Promotions, a move Magsayo believes will help hype up his future bouts.

This is a partnership between TGB Promotions and MP Promotions, which aims to showcase the unbeaten Filipino on American soil under Al Haymon’s Premier Boxing Champions (PBC).

“He reminds me of myself, how we both struggled to come from nothing to world-rated contender. I love his work ethic and desire to become a world champion and I will do everything to help promote Mark and make his dreams a reality,” Pacquiao said.

Magsayo, who sports a 24-0 record with 14 KOs, joins world champions John Riel Casimero, Jerwin Ancajas and Pedro Taduran, among fighters being promoted by Pacquiao.
