Pacquiao, who will step into the ring for one last time later this year against Timothy Bradley on April 9 in Las Vegas, has since apologized for his remarks. However, Nike have decided to terminate their 10-year relationship with the boxer.
“We find Manny Pacquiao’s comments abhorrent,” a Nike statement released on Wednesday read.
“Nike strongly opposes discrimination of any kinds and has a long history of supporting and standing up for the rights of the LGBT community.
“We no longer have a relationship with Manny Pacquiao.”
