Manny Pacquiao’s Net Worth History
Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao is one of the hottest tickets in sport and has a net worth of $190 million. In 2015 he received the largest pay cheque of his career, earning an estimated $130 million despite being beaten by American Floyd Mayweather. A Forbes report in 2015 declared that he was the second highest-paid athlete in the world. Pacquiao has, however, seen his net worth significantly reduced to the tax system in the Philippines – in 2014 he was demanded to pay approximately $75 million after a tax evasion case.
About Manny Pacquiao
Pacquiao is one of the best pound-for-pound fighters of his generation and has won title belts in seven different weight divisions. The Filipino, who fought professionally for the first time in 1995, has so far compiled a 57-6 win-loss record, with two draws. He has won 38 of his fights via knockout. Pacquiao is coached by Freddie Roach, has a southpaw stance and a reach of 67 inches.
After spending much of his early days fighting in the Philippines, Pacquiao started to box in the United States in the early 2000s. He knocked out South Africa’s Lehlo Ledwaba in his first fight at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas to win the IBF Super Bantamweight title – a venue where he would later enjoy some of his most memorable victories and defeats.
Pacquiao lost to Erik Morales in 2005 but got revenge by knocking the Mexican out twice in future meetings, and three years later he boxed the biggest match of his career to date, beating Oscar De La Hoya. Five months later he knocked out Britain’s Ricky Hatton and advanced his claim to take on Mayweather.
The Filipino continued to dominate his opposition, but his credibility suffered a blow in 2012 when he lost consecutive fights to Timothy Bradley and Juan Manuel Marquez. He rebounded to win his next three matches and in January 2015, he and Mayweather finally reached agreement on a fight, having spent over five years disputing during negotiations.
The bout was billed as “The Fight of the Century” and the pay-per view event raised over $410 million in revenue. Despite the huge build-up, Pacquiao was beaten on points and the fight was largely declared underwhelming, with many saying it would have been better had it taken place when both were at their prime. Pacquiao has expressed his desire for a rematch, but so far nothing has come to fruition.
The 36-year-old is one of the most recognizable figures from the Philippines and he was elected to the Philippine House of Representatives in 2010 with a two-to-one majority, winning under the People’s Champ Movement – a party he founded. He retained his seat unopposed in 2013.
Pacquiao is one of six children and is an Evangelical Protestant. He married Jinkee Jamora in 2000 and they have had five children together. Due to his political status, his official residence is in Kiamba, Sarangani. However, he actually lives in General Santos City, South Cotabato.
