In brief: None

Persistent hormonal gynecomastia from adolescence, from a drug related or other medical problem does not care how much or what exercises you do.
Keeping your total body fat percentage below 20% through diet/exercise can reduce any contribution by body fat, but glandular tissue & some body fat stores can only be treated surgically.

In brief: Weight-lifting

If you can build up the pectoral muscles below the fat and drop a few pounds at the same time, the problem will disappear and you will look good.

Man boobs technically refer to the effects of estrogen produced in a males fat cells by cyclic aromatase, and obese men frequently have high estradiol levels which increases the glandular breast tissue. The term now loosely refers to sagging breast in heavy males. But if they have formed breast tissue, it will remain.
