Manny Pacquiao is a new sneaker free agent, and after lacing up some Under Armours the other day, rumors started to circulate that he was in talks with the brand about a potential partnership. Before the rumors could go on any longer, Under Armour has put them to rest.

According to TMZ Sports, a rep from the brand has made it clear by stating "Under Armour is not in conversation with Manny Pacquiao." We're used to brands being vague about rumors for business interests, but that answer seems pretty straight forward. In case you didn't hear, Nike ended its deal with the boxer after he made comments against the gay community. We're sure more rumors about his next sneaker deal will come up again, but we don't expect any major brands get involved anytime soon.
