“I am proud to partner with Paradigm Sports Management and am excited for the opportunities that (Paradigm president and CEO) Audie Attar and PSM have to offer,” Pacquiao said in a statement. “One thing I want everyone to remember is to always think positively. Never think negatively; that is the beginning of your downfall. Everything is possible.”
It wasn’t long until his new teammate, McGregor, welcomed the 41-year-old.

With McGregor and Pacquiao under the same partnership, speculations of a potential boxing match are in the air. McGregor’s first ring match was in August 2017 when he lost to Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Although it’s unknown whether “Pac-Man” will return to the ring in 2020, he holds a record of 62-7-2, 39 KOs.
