Two days after a prominent Filipino neurologist made statements on a local radio show saying that champion pugilist and Congressman, Manny Pacquiao is showing early signs of Parkinson’s disease, may result in a lawsuit from the Pacquiao camp, according to a ABS-CBN report Saturday.

According to the Philippines media source, in a text message sent to ABS-CBN News, the boxer’s adviser Michael Koncz, said they might sue Dr. Rustico Jimenez for making speculative statements on Pacquiao’s condition.

“Tell me how can one make such allegations based on mere speculation as I am not aware that this alleged doctor ever examined Manny yet he makes such a diagnoses,” said Koncz.

“We are contemplating a civil suit for meritless and unfounded accusations.”

This stems from a Thursday radio interview with President of Private Hospitals Association of the Philippines and prominent neurologist, Dr. Rustico Jimenez who stated he has been observing early signs of Parkinson’s disease in the 34-year-old Pacquiao.

Dr. Jimenez noted that among the early signs of Parkinson’s being exhibited by Pacquiao include stuttering and hand twitching.

The doctor did state that he has not met Pacquiao to personally check on his condition and could be wrong with his observations.

The observation was noted after “Pacman’s” 6th-round knockout to Mexican rival, Juan Manuel Marquez last December.

It is reported that the boxer will be taken to the Lou Ruvo Center of the Las Vegas Cleveland Clinic for further exams in light of claims, Top Rank spokesman,  Fred Sternburg told ESPN. Sternburg notes that “They will examine him as a precaution.”
