Eumir Marcial signs with MP Promotions

Tokyo Olympics-bound middleweight Eumir Marcial is about to embark on a new journey. And he has found the right partner to accompany him along the way.

The 24-year-old pugilist out of Lunzuran, Zamboanga City has signed with MP Promotions to handle his career as he enters the pro ranks.

“Nais ko po na iparating sa lahat ang aking desisyon na pumirma ng isang promotional deal sa Manny Pacquiao Promotions,” Marcial said.

“Napili ko ang MP Promotions dahil sa kanilang one hundred-percent support sa aking hangarin na lumaban pa para sa Pilipinas sa mga future SEA Games at Asian Games competitions at maging sa Olympics.

The three-time Southeast Asian Games gold medalist has always had interest in signing with the Manny Pacquiao-owned promotion, even with numerous international firms offering to lock him up.

“I think MP Promotions is the best promoter,” said Marcial during the June 21 episode of The Hit List presented by SMART Sports.

“Alam ko nandiyan si Senator Pacquiao na tinutulungan po ‘yung mga boksingero na umangat din sa kahirapan at maabot ‘yung mga pangarap [nila].”

Marcial assured that MP Promotions has given him the leeway to focus on training for the 2021 Tokyo Olympics.

“Sa katunayan, nakasaad sa aking six-year-promotional deal na hindi sila magiging hadlang sa oras na kailanganin ako ng national team.”

With MP Promotions, Marcial will be stablemates with current world champions Pedro Taduran, Johnriel Casimero at Jerwin Ancajas.

Marcial thanked the Amateur Boxing Association of the Philippines for the undying support it has given him and his family throughout the years.

And he plans on repaying it by getting Olympic gold or die trying.

“Gaya po ng aking naipangako, ibibigay ko ang lahat ng aking makakaya para makuha ang minimithi natin na Olympic gold medal at maging isang boxing world champion ilang taon mula ngayon.”
