Statement by Dale Kinsella: “Paradigm Sports’ lawsuit filed in California state court on Friday is a frivolous effort to interfere with Manny Pacquiao’s upcoming mega-fight, and it can and will fail for many reasons. Also, if Manny Pacquiao had known that Paradigm Sports seemed to have had no intention of fulfilling its contractual obligations, he would never have formed a relationship with them. If this case were to go beyond Friday’s court presentation, Mr. Pacquiao would vigorously defend the action, make his own claims against Paradigm Sports and also seek to recoup his attorney fees. “
Paradigm Sports reportedly represented Pacquiao in negotiating a bout against Mikey Garcia from which Pacman reportedly received a $ 3.3 million advance. They seek a court order to stop the announced fight between Pacquiao and Spence.
