AsiaGolfOnline.com: Golf Star Tiger Woods will be joined in by Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao and NBA Superstar Kobe Bryant in one explosive commercial for a sports shoe and apparel company that gathers together the three world sports icon in few seconds of TV ads.

It was Pacquiao who broke the information to Philippine media, although he was earlier criticized for allegedly snubbing a shoot with Kobe Bryant while he was preparing for the fight against Juan Manuel Marquez.

Although Woods lost to Geoff Ogilvy in the recent CA Championship in Doral, he remains to be the world’s golf icon while LA Laker’s Kobe Bryant has become one of basketball’s superstars.

The schedule of release for the Nike commercial has not been set yet but insiders revealed it should be in the next few weeks.

    I too am suprised that it’s Kobe not Lebron. Possibly because of where the Lakers are and where the Cavs are not?

    What’s in common with these guys is that they’re all Filipino! haha.

    “It was Pacquiao who broke the information to Philippine media, although he was earlier criticized for allegedly snubbing a shoot with Kobe Bryant while he was preparing for the fight against Juan Manuel Marquez.”

    I don’t think Pacquiao “snubbed” the shoot with Kobe. Like it says here, Pacman was preparing for a fight with Marquez which is his toughest opponent since. But he did break info to the Philippine media which means he’s excited to do it. He’s not a Laker hater. I used to see him getting interviewed wearing a Lakers hat.

  • domz

    Yah! I think Manny is not a hater, as a matter of fact, we filipinos love KB so much, even though others hate him as well. But i dont mind them coz i hate their idols too..haha..

    One thing in common about these champs is….

    All 3 of them have mistresses…HAHA..Manny is a chick magnet lately…haha..Juz kidding!!

    Im Happy to see my fellow country man pairing up with my Only basketball idol, Mr. Kobe Bean Bryant!!!

    manny’s not a hater. juan manuel marquez is the only fighter who gave manny a problem so the latter really trained hard for their rematch. and he can’t jeopardize his chance of stealing the superfeatherweight belt from JMM that time by doing other things. but after the JMM fight or post Diaz fight (not sure) they actually had an ad with Nike with other sports stars though not shot together.
