The controversial neurologist Dr. Rustico Jimenez might face charges from the camp of Manny Pacquiao after causing some fears on the fans and followers of the Filipino boxing icon after Parkinson’s fears surfaced on the internet.
According to Pacquiao’s adviser Michael Koncz, Dr. Jimenez might be sued for making speculative statements on Manny Pacquiao’s condition. Koncz stated that they are contemplating a civil suit for meritless and unfounded accusations.
Jimenez who was identified as the President of Private Hospitals Association of the Philippines was quoted through an interview with DZMM that he saw Pacquiao showing signs of Parkinson’s.
The Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system which hurts most retired boxers such Muhammad Ali and Pacquiao’s coach Freddie Roach.
Some of the Philippines’ boxing analyst and reporter disagreed with the findings made by Dr. Jimenez. Rich Mazon one of the most prominent boxing writer in the Philippines even made a special article in Philboxing for his views with baseless reporting against Manny Pacquiao.
