However, Joson alleged that the fight with McGregor is supposed to be already in the works, which is why Paradigm Sports Management (PSM) did not hesitate to give Pacquiao the $2M he requested as cash advance.

“Dahil napapirma, ang gusto niya ay humingi ng advance… So naayos namin, nagbigay agad ang Paradigm ng US$2M kay sir MP as cash advance dahil alam naman natin na lalaban siya kung sino ang gusto ng tao,” Joson claimed.

Pacquiao’s former business agent then said that Sen. Pacquiao might not be satisfied with the initial $2M and so requested an additional $2M.

Later on, PacMan, as claimed by Joson, demanded another $2M, which Paradigm declined to give this time, forcing the business agent to look for ways to raise the additional amount required by Pacquiao.

“Hindi po siya nakuntento doon eh. Ang sabi po niya sa amin ay dagdagan, humingi pa ng $2M pa ullit para gawin na US$4M. Kami naman, sinubukan namin humingi ulit sa Paradigm, hindi na pumayag,” Pacquiao’s former business agent alleged.

He said that Paradigm thinks the additional cash advance allegedly requested by PacMan is already too much and that is not how they do businesses.

This is why Joson claimed they were forced to look for ways to raise some P65M as additional for Sen. Pacquiao.

“Binigay namin ang pera kahit nagkasanla-sanla kami, nakuha niya ang pera sa Paradigm. Tinakbuhan po kami. Hindi niya sinunod ang kontrata, hindi sinunod ang usapan namin. Para bang iyung matagal na pagkakaibigan namin eh nabalewala,” Joson claimed.

The camp of Sen. Pacquiao has denied all of Joson’s allegations and has vowed to initiate legal action, which includes the filing of a criminal complaint against the former aide.
