Pacquiao says he hasn’t been paid yet either

Below is Senator Manny Pacquiao’s official statement regarding Freddie Roach’s allegation that he has not yet been paid:

“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 deducted by Top Rank from my purse. So, if Coach Freddie has not yet received his payment, we are in the same boat. My purse has not yet been released by Arum.”
