As part of the publicity for his new TV show in the Philippines, eight-division title holder Manny Pacquiao made paintings using his boxing gloves. He threw combination punches on a white canvas with the gloves dipped in basic colours.

Pacquiao posted the photos on his Instagram account.
Rico Gutierrez, the director of his forthcoming TV show, the Philippine edition of Sports Science, said that the boxer's contemporary art pieces created when they taped episodes of the show in November 2013, would likely be exhibited.
An Instagram member called the boxer's creation as Pac Art.
The show, which airs its pilot episode on Sept 15, is originally an ESPN show.
Meanwhile, Pacquiao has asked over the weekend the Philippine Supreme Court to stop the enforcement by the Court of Tax Appeals of its decision mandating the boxer and wife Jinkee to post P3.2 billion cash bond or P4.9 billion surety bond to suspend the collection of Pacquiao's alleged tax deficiency worth $3.29 billion.
Pacquiao has until Aug 17, Monday, to settle the bond. He asked for a temporary restraining order against the CTA decision, claiming he was denied due process by the taxwoman and the agency has bloated the computation of his liability.
