In time for this weekend’s Pacquiao-Clottey bout in Cowboy Stadium, Nike is continuing its influx of Pacman fan wear with its release of the Pacquiao Destroyer jacket. Notably, the Destroyer jacket by Nike has only been graced by a few select projects. Special Destroyers have been made for Tokyo, London and New York City – but to serve a boxing superstar, Nike went through the task of creating the Pacquiao Destroyer. At the moment there are no specified retailers carrying the Destroyer, but as the fight date draws nearer, one would only hope Nike will release a location.

The homie Alex from IM King just sent me the information for their Special Edition Charity T-Shirt collaboration with Manny Pacquiao. Please refer to the Press Release below for more information.
Wednesday, November 11th, 2009 – On Behalf of the Manny Pacquiao Charity Foundation, Klevah Management, and Mass Hysteria Werx. IM King is proud to announce its Special Edition Official Charity T-Shirt collaboration with the current best Pound for Pound Light Welterweight Champion of the World, Manny “PacMan” Pacquiao. This genuine partnership not only commemorates Pacquiao’s fight against Miguel Cotto on November 14, 2009 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada, but also mark’s valiant efforts to raise proceeds to help Typhoon Victims in Pacquiao’s home country of the Philippines. Major devastation and tragedy struck on September 26th, 2009 to Metro Manila and its surrounding areas. Part of the T-Shirt sales
proceeds will be donated to the needy victims on behalf of the Manny Pacquiao Foundation and IM King.
The IM King “Pound4Pound” design is an inspiration based off Chief Datu Lapu-Lapu, who back in the 16th Century fought back against Spanish Conquistador, Ferdinand Magellan, and successfully defended his village and fellow Filipinos. Pacquiao actually portrayed the legendary country hero in an annual re-enactment held in Cebu City, Philippines, as he is the perfect modern day example of Lapu-Lapu as a national hero. It is Pacquiao’s Filipino Fighting spirit and an inspiration to the people to make it out of adversity and never let anything stop your dreams. It didn’t take long for the design
concept to materialize between IM King’s Creative Designer, Brian
Tampol, and Mass Hysteria Werx’s CEO, Brian Ortencio, who are both of Filipino backgrounds.
The Tee will be available for Pre-Order on IMKing.com ONLY, Wednesday,
November 11th. Exclusively on IM King’s web store.
In support of the highly anticipated May 2nd, Hatton Vs. Pacquiao fight, Nike has created new colour-ways of the “Pacman Knows” tees, exclusive to Shiekh. The t-shirts come in yellow, red, and blue.
