Manny Pacquiao lost his last professional contest against Yordenis Ugas in 2021.

Justin Fortune, who was part of many Pacquiao fight camps, has claimed that it was all down to a nice relaxing massage.

Speaking about the fight to Lucky Block he said: “Freddie blamed me for Manny’s last fight against Ugas.”

“I went off to watch Ugas get his hands wrapped, when I left there was a masseuse there and I said do not touch my fighter, Manny’s never had a massage before a fight in 22 years, don’t touch him.”

“Why would you touch a fighter before a fight? I come back and he’s massaging Pacquiao. I said, ‘what are you doing, he’d be too relaxed and you’re releasing toxins into the body that should not be there and it’s out of routine, he’s never done it in 20 years.’

“Manny lost and Freddie of course won’t take the blame for anything, so he blamed me instead for what happened. No-one gets a massage before a fight, and it affected his performance. When I walked in and saw it I screamed some expletives that would embarrass my mum.”
