Triple whammy: Pacman remains unpaid from Horn fight


After suffering defeats in the ring and in the WBO review, bad luck continue to hound former WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquaio.

The eight-time division king revealed he remains unpaid 10 days after losing his title against Australian Jeff Horn in Brisbane.

In a statement, Pacquiao revealed that until now he hasn’t receive his purse.

Pacquiao made the revelation after he was asked to comment on Freddie Roach’s claims that until now he has not received payment from the fight.

“If coach Freddie (Roach) has not yet received his payment, we are on the same boat. My purse has not yet been released by (Bob) Arum,” Pacquiao said.

Pacman clarified it is not him who should pay Roach.

“I have no problem with coach Freddie Roach. I’m not the one paying him, it’s Bob Arum. The trainer’s fee is automatically ded.
