According to the release, Paradigm Sports Management is expected to work with the boxer’s current team. The team includes Pacquaio’s business manager Arnold Vegafria, associate Ping Nepomuceno and his attorney Brando Viernesto.
In the release, Manny Pacquaio said that he was proud to partner with Paradigm Sports Management and that he is excited for the opportunities that Audie Attar and PSM have to offer him. Pacquaio also wanted everyone to remember that they should always think positively. He also explained that if you think in a negative way; that would be the beginning of your downfall. He concluded by saying that everything is possible.
Manny Pacquaio will now be joining the likes of UFC's biggest star Conor McGregor, UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya and Bellator women’s featherweight champion Cris Cyborg.
Manny Pacquiao’s former manager Sean Gibbons had floated the possibility of Manny Pacquiao and Conor McGregor coming together for a boxing showdown in Las Vegas. Conor McGregor also welcomed the idea of a fight and revealed that he was close to signing a deal to fight Manny Pacquiao. Since Pacquiao is now signed to the same management team as McGregor, arranging a fight should be a lot easier.
