Manny Pacquiao will pay medical expenses of boxer who fell into coma after Pacquiao’s event

Filipino legend Manny Pacquiao has once again shown his compassion for his fellow boxers by offering to cover the medical expenses of Kenneth Egano. He is a young boxer who collapsed during an eight-round contest in Cavite, Philippines, on Saturday night.

Egano is 22 years old with a professional record of 6-1 and 3 KOs. He was facing undefeated boxer Jason Facularin with a record of 4-0 at Pacquiao’s “Blow by Blow” boxing event. Egano collapsed in the ring before the result of the match was announced. He ended up winning the match but he was immediately taken to the hospital.

Pacquiao showed concern for Egano’s well-being, urging his staff to ensure that the young boxer would receive all the necessary medical care. Pacquiao stated: “There’s nothing more precious than human life.”

Egano underwent surgery at the Imus City Medical Hospital on Sunday and remains there for further medical treatment. Pacquiao’s gesture of paying for Egano’s medical expenses provides much-needed relief to the boxer’s family.

In a separate matter, Pacquiao was recently ordered by a judge to pay Conor McGregor’s management company Paradigm Sports more than 4 million pounds. Pacquiao had signed a two-bout deal with Paradigm Sports in 2020, with the expectation of competing in a lucrative match against McGregor. However, that bout never came to fruition.

The jury recently gave its verdict in Paradigm Sports Management’s favor. Now, Pacquiao must pay back the damages. He is required to pay the sports management company a total of $5.1 million. The repayment consists of $3.3 million in advance payment and $1.8 million in monetary damages. Additionally, he may have to pay the legal fees as well.

McGregor reacted to the news and wrote in a now-deleted tweet: “Manny owes 8 [million dollars] total. 5.1 he owes and then 2.9 in legal fees. Legal fees are high but that’s what we do. Heavy operations.”
