Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, July 12) — Filipino ring icon Manny Pacquiao revealed Wednesday that his promoter Bob Arum of Top Rank has not paid him and his trainer Freddie Roach for the welterweight title bout against Australian boxer Jeff Horn last July 2.

Top Rank has promoted Pacquiao's fights since 2005.

The eight-time world division champion also clarified that he had no issue with his long-time boxing mentor.

"I have no problem with coach Freddie Roach. I'm not the one paying him, it's Bob Arum," Pacquiao said. "The trainer's fee is automatically deducted by the Top Rank from my purse."

"So, if coach Freddie has not yet received his payment, we are on the same boat. My purse has not yet been released by Arum," he added.

The boxer-turned-politician made the statement after Roach said yesterday that Pacquiao has given him the cold shoulder since the controversial loss to Horn.

Pacquiao will reportedly receive at least a $10 million guaranteed paycheck for the bout.
