Mark Magsayo recently signed an overseas promotion contract with Pacquiao’s MP Promotions (MPP). They will now take Mark under their wing and get him the mentorship and fights he deserves. He is a fighter with a lot of caliber and with the right team behind him can do wonders form himself within and outside the sport.

Mark Magsayo currently holds an undefeated record of 20-0. 14 of these have come through knockouts. He is just 24 years old and has a long way to go. Personally, I think this is a step in the right direction. Signing to MPP will take the talented boxer places. This contract also entails a partnership with TGB Promotions.

“We have been watching Mark for a few years now, bounced around and his career was put on hold for various reasons. But he is home now with MP Promotions and we are thrilled for Mark and his wife Frances that they signed with us,” MPP President Sean Gibbson said. 

Magsayo has primarily fought only in his native land, the Philippines. ‘Magnifico’ as he’s referred to, fought twice in the United States. First was a first-round knock out win over Yardley Cruz. The second lasted 12 rounds and he beat Ramiro Robles via decision.

Despite this more than impressive record, recently mark has found it difficult to stay active within the ring. He didn’t have a single bout the whole of 2018 and fought only twice in 2019. He hasn’t contended in the last 6 months but is very eager to get back. Right now under Manny Pacquiao wing, he’s ready to take over the world boxing scene.

Manny Pacquiao Vouches for Mark Magsayo

“I have watched Mark develop here in the Philippines as a fighter. He reminds me of myself, how we both struggled to come from nothing to world-rated contender. I love his work ethic and desire to become a world champion and I will do everything to help promote Mark and make his dreams a reality,” Pacquiao vouched for the 24-year-old.”
