The National Union of Journalists of the Philippines is urging boxing superstar and Sarangani Representative Manny Pacquiao to censure members of his entourage who accosted a photojournalist after Pacquiao’s loss to Juan Manuel Marquez.

 

InterAKTV on InterAksyon.com reports NUJP has said in a statement that it "deplores the attack on a photojournalist by Manny Pacquiao's assistant trainer Buboy Fernandez, and adviser Michael Koncz, after the boxing champion's recent loss to Juan Manuel Marquez."

 

According to the report, Getty Images photojournalist Al Bello had to rush out of the ring to avoid a physical confronatation with Fernandez and Koncz who were  angry at him for taking pictures of a floored Pacquiao.

 

"Koncz and Fernandez had absolutely no reason to attack him and their doing so was actually in the nature of a criminal act, just as Pacquiao's trainer Freddie Roach had no right to order Bello to stop taking photos, although Roach later apologized for doing so, according to the photographer," NUJP said.
