Why’s Manny Still Fighting?

It is undeniable that Manny Pacquiao is considered one of the best boxers ever. He is the first in the long, illustrious history of the fight game to win major world titles in four of the original eight weight classes: flyweight, featherweight, lightweight, and welterweight. 

He was named “Fighter of the Decade” for the 2000’s by the Boxing Writers Association of America (BWAA), WBC, and WBO. He is also a three-time Ring magazine and BWAA Fighter of the Year, winning the award in 2006, 2008, and 2009; and the Best Fighter ESPY Award in 2009 and 2011.

So why is it that, after generating approximately 19.2 million in pay-per-view buys and $1.2 billion in revenue from his 23 PPV bouts, he is still fighting? 

According to Forbes, he was the second-highest paid athlete in the world as of 2015, the year he fought Floyd Mayweather, Jr. And after a huge payout, it is surprising for Pacquiao to still be climbing into the ring.

  • The official purse split for Mayweather vs. Pacquiao was 60/40, with Mayweather reaping the majority of the profits with a guaranteed purse of $120 million. Pacquiao’s guaranteed purse was $80 million.
  • Yet, despite his prior victories and big payouts that those wins generated, Pacquiao has been to be very generous with his wealth. 
  • After growing up poor in Manila and boxing for his family’s survival, the triumvirate of Pacquiao, head trainer Freddie Roach, and promoter Bob Arum created a superstar that took top billing while racking up belts like Mayweather’s many chains and luxury watches. 
  • The ride was long and good, a rarity in boxing and now like his past, Pacquiao is still fighting for his financial survival.
  • Rumors have been swirling since his last fight against Aussie Jeff Horn that Pacquiao still needs to fight to live. In addition to taking care of his large circle of friends and family, he has given so much of his money to the people of the Philippines to provide basic life necessities like housing that he has depleted much of his financial gains and you have the makings of boxing’s MC Hammer story. 
  • When Pacquiao was robbed by the judges in Australia against Jeff Horn for the WBO welterweight title, it was obvious that although he is still one of the best to ever do it, that he’s lost a considerable step or two.
  • Now that he is fighting former world champion Lucas Matthysse, one has to wonder if the Filipino star has taken on too much when he should be either out of the game or fighting lesser names in the division. 

Manny Pacquiao vs Lucas Matthysse | Final press conference highlights | Fight is this Saturday!

DONATE to the machine!! https://www.paypal.me/KoncreteJungle IG: https://www.instagram.com/thekjungle/ TWITTER: http://bit.ly/f0Ppgq Manny Pacquiao vs Lucas Matthysse | Final press conference highlights | Fight is this Saturday!

Matthysse is definitely not in the realm of Shawn Porter, Danny Garcia, or Keith Thurman, but he is still dangerous and Pacquiao is taking a major risk with this fight. 

How he is experiencing financial hardship after making that much money is a failure of ALL parties involved: Arum, Roach, and Team Pacquiao based in the Philippines. While everyone enjoyed the ride at Pacquiao’s expense, no one was keeping their eye on the till. 

Many people won’t tune into Pacquiao’s fight, which will air live on ESPN, from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. If you’ve been paying attention, Pacquiao cannot get a fight in the lucrative U.S. market. With his PPV appeal down and relevance lowered domestically, he is now moving around the globe fighting for paper belts to sustain his lifestyle.

Reliving Manny Pacquiao’s best fights and biggest hits | ESPN

With Manny Pacquiao looking for his 60th career victory against Lucas Matthysse on Saturday at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN+, relive fights with Juan Manuel Marquez, Oscar De La Hoya, Ricky Hatton and more.

Unless Pacquiao fights Conor McGregor, it is pointless to even box. Hopefully, he will save more than he spends after this fight and fall back from being the savior of the hood. Both Congressman Pacquiao and the boxing world will be better off for it.
