Manny Pacquiao might have taken a bit of flak for his comments on gay marriage recently, but that hasn’t deterred Nike from teaming up with the best boxer in the world (which is what he currently is) for an upcoming showdown with Timothy Bradley on June 9.
Described as the best pound for pound boxer in the history of the sport, Manny Pacquiao will be teaming up with Nike to promote the company’s new Nike+ Training experience, which connects to his training shoe – the Nike LunarTR1+ – and transmits information about his movement and a variety of different metrics into his mobile phone.
The Nike LunarTR1+ is set to hit the stores on June 29 in the US, UK, France, Germany and mainland China. It will be available worldwide soon after. The rest of the Nike+ Training experience includes the MP Fight Night Robe, MP Fight Night Trunks, Nike HyperKO MP Boot, and t-shirt.
