Manny Pacquiao Rumor: Bob Arum Wants to Remove VisionQwest from Business

Bob Arum doesn't want eight-division world champ Manny Pacquiao (53-3-2, 38 KOs) doing business with VisionQwest Resource Group according to Fight Hype. VisionQwest was hired to look through Pacquiao's contracts before signing, as well as to manage his accounting and business matters. When the official press release came out that Pacquiao would use VisionQwest's services, Arum and Pacquiao's adviser, Michael Koncz, seemed fine with it. Now, the tune seems to have changed. Here is a quote from Fight Hype's source: Arum and Koncz are doing everything in their power to remove the very same people who were brought in for the sole purpose of making sure Manny is getting paid correctly. It doesn't make any sense. VisionQwest is just trying to look out for him. Michael just show up to deliver a letter from Bob two days ago. He wants VisionQwest out of the picture. My Two Cents VisionQwest, Arum and Koncz are heavily invested in Pacquiao financially, whether financially, personally or both. If this is true, then something may be amiss with Pacquiao's business dealings with VisionQwest or Arum and Koncz. Boxing is dirty game with a foul history of raw deals. I just hope Pacquiao doesn't add to this long unfortunate history.
