Sen. Manny Pacquiao, founder and chief executive officer (CEO) of the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League, said they are partnering with expert groups to prevent unscrupulous people from engaging “game-fixing” in the regional league.

“Gusto kong pangalagaan ang MPBL. Gusto kong ang tao hindi niloloko. Gusto ko ang game laging competitive. Hindi yung maraming hokus-pokus. Ayaw kong niloloko natin yung sambayanang Pilipino. Wina-warningan ko lang baka pagdating ng panahon mawala na kayo na parang bula,” said Pacquiao.

There were unconfirmed reports that reached the MPBL Commissioner’s Office on allegations on game fixing.

Pacquiao said he’ll give a reward to people who can show proof on game fixing or odds game that affects the outcome of the game.
