Koncz livid over claims to cut VisionQuest from Pacquiao

By Ronnie Nathanielsz

An angry Michael Koncz, adviser to pound-for-pound king Manny Pacquiao, has blasted an internet report, which said a reliable source advised them that Koncz had returned to Manila with a letter from Top Rank promoter Bob Arum to Pacquiao asking him to terminate the services of the VisionQuest Resource Group.

VisionQuest was hired to handle Pacquiao’s tax and accounting details and to review his business contracts.

Koncz who had recommended that Pacquiao hire the accounting firm told BoxingScene.com/Daily Inquirer “I am adamantly denying it right now and whoever that so-called source is, is full of b---l s—t!.“

Koncz said Arum has “no right to interfere with people employed by Manny. Why would he do such a thing? Bob never did such a thing.”

The Pacquiao adviser said the claim “is totally absurd and I have no idea who this person close to VisionQuest is.”

The report claimed that a representative of VisionQuest had contacted the Nevada State Athletic Commission in an attempt to gather more information regarding the eight division world champion’s bouts agreements.

Reporter Ben Thompson alleged that “evidently the move did not sit well with Arum who immediately took action by having Koncz return to the Philippines.”

He further said that Michael Lodge, president and CEO of VisionQuest, had informed the site that they have arrived in Makati and “would be meeting with Pacquiao Saturday to review some 'open issues' they found from the research they have conducted thus far.”

Koncz said Pacquiao was shooting his new TV show over GMA Channel 7 in Davao City.

What Koncz carried with him after discussions with the Top Rank promoter were details of the media tour for the Juan Manuel Marquez trilogy which kicks-off in Manila on September 3.

[QUOTE=GRUSTLER;11016418]Listen man, I'm not replying to your post to talk about anything about race but rather just about common sense. If VisionQuest is now in the picture on behalf of Manny Pacquiao, then something on his side is not right.…
