The PBA Secretariat apologized for the unexpected behavior of the LPBA Women’s champion’s manager who interrupted the press conference of the PBA Men’s champion and promised to prevent a recurrence.
The match between Frederique Kudrong (Belgium-Wellcome Savings Bank) and Birole Wimaz (Turkiye-Wellcome Savings Bank) in the second leg of the 2023-2024 season’s Silk Road & Anshan PBA-LPBA Championship, which began at 10 p.m. on Tuesday at the Sangryoksu Gymnasium in Anshan City, did not end until after midnight with Kudrong winning the set 4-1.
However, after winning his eighth career title, Kudrong did not enter the post-match press conference and left the court.
“It seems that Kudrong had an altercation with a person personally hired by the women’s champion, Throng Pheavy (Cambodia-Blue One Resort),” said a PBA official, explaining what happened to the normally gentlemanly Kudrong.
The person reportedly stormed into the press conference and criticized Kudrong before leaving.
Surong had won her sixth career LPBA title in the women’s event a day earlier, and was at the stadium for a photo shoot with the men’s and women’s winners 메이저놀이터.
During the photo shoot, there was apparently an altercation between Surong and Kudrong.
“We initially thought that the person (who barged into the press conference) was an employee of the team or an agent, but it looks like a personal manager,” said an official from the PBA Secretariat, explaining that they are still trying to figure out what exactly happened.
“We apologize for the unauthorized person entering the stadium and press conference. We will strictly control the number of people entering the stadium and press conference to prevent this from happening again.”
