Filipino boxing legend Manny Pacquiao enters a different realm to prove that everyone can be legendary.
From cementing his legendary status in the boxing ring and showcasing his wares in professional basketball, the eight-division world champion will now be making his mark in the virtual battle arena.
In an online press conference, Moonton welcomed Pacquiao as its newest Mobile Legends: Bang Bang ambassador.
“Based on the studies we’ve done, seventy-percent of our users are big fans of boxing legend Manny Pacquiao,” said ML-Philippines marketing manager William Mei.
“Mobile Legends: Bang Bang has a lot in common with boxing. Like boxing, it requires skill, determination, physical effort, and most importantly mental toughness. You can’t beat your opponent just by being strong, you have to also be smart.”
For Pacquiao, he has always wanted to be part of ML since his son Jimuel is an avid player of the game.
“I already know of Mobile Legends even before they got in touch because my son, Jimuel, plays the game on his phone and regularly streams with friends,” Pacquiao said.
“So why not be a part of what my son loves?
“It is an amazing experience. I have seen how much the esports community in the Philippines has grown and how much the gaming community embraced Mobile Legends: Bang Bang,” said Pacquiao.
MLBB marketing manager William Mei revealed that they have been pursuing the 41-year-old Senator for more than a year now.
Pacquiao’s addition to the MLBB is another milestone for ML as it recently celebrated a one-billionth download.
