Doctor Ed de la Vega, Manny Pacquiao’s Dentist, received a lot of comments after posting a photo on his Twitter page @Mouthgrds4Champ.
He captioned it with “Guess who gets to use this on April 9th?” with the hashtag #PacBradley.
He later said that it was not an issue and that there was no intent of Pacman using the said mouthguard.
He then posted a photo of the real mouth piece that Pacquiao was going to use for the fight on April 9.
The doctor is also a contributor for Philboxing.com and wrote about the conversation he had with Bobby Pacquiao. Bobby relayed a message to Dr. Ed from Manny regarding the previous design of the mouthguard. Manny wanted a different design since the MP logo was affiliated with Nike. Nike ended their contract with the People’s Champ last February after his anti-LGBT comments.
“Cong would really appreciate it if you can make him another mouthguard without the old MP logo that is associated with Nike,” he said to me in the vernacular. “Gusto niya yung bagong MP kama-o na designed para sa laban na ito, he added (He wants the new MP hand recently designed for this fight).
What do you think of the new design?
