Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) — After signing an endorsement deal with Globe Telecom to be its newest brand ambassador, Senator and boxing legend Manny Pacquiao said he will donate his fees to victims of Typhoons Rolly and Ulysses.

“I am given another God-given opportunity to be of help to our kababayans in any way I can that is why my endorsement fee for this will go to relief efforts to help our kababayans who were affected by the devastation of typhoons Rolly and Ulysses,” Pacquiao said during the livestreamed event on Tuesday.

The contract signing was held at Raffles Hotel in Makati City with Globe President and CEO Ernest Cu and Globe Chairman and Ayala Corporation Chairman Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala.

The partnership between the eight-division world champion and the telecommunications company will also allow Filipinos worldwide to watch Pacquiao’s upcoming fights via Upstream, a new video-on-demand platform, and GMovies, a booking service platform for cinemas and third-party online video streaming sites.

Upstream partner Dondon Monteverde expressed his appreciation of the People’s Champion and said, "it is with great privilege and honor that Upstream will air his next fight through live internet streaming to the Filipino people.”

Also present at the contract signing were Jaime Alfonso Zobel de Ayala, Business Development Head of Ayala Corporation; Issa Cabreira, Globe Consumer Business Group Head; Joe Caliro, Globe Senior Adviser; Arnold Vegafria, Talent Manager, and Roselle Monteverde, Regal Films Producer.
