How rich is Manny Pacquiao? He’s a billionaire!




Every time we post a list of the Richest Filipinos, many commenters always ask why Manny Pacquiao — with his millions of boxing winnings and earnings from product endorsements — is not on it.

The simple answer? He’s not rich enough.

Manny Pacquiao riches wealth SALNThat seems surprising, considering he is now the Philippines’ richest congressman and even topped the ESPN’s list of Highest Paid Athletes in 2010.

How much is he worth exactly?

As of December 31, 2010, his Statement of Assets, Liabilities and Net Worth (SALN) shows that his total net worth is P1.134 billion. That translates to around $26 million.

His assets consist of P397.9 million ($9.2 million) in real estate properties and P736.3 million ($17 million) in personal and other properties.

This does not even include yet his winnings in his latest victorious fight against Sugar Shane Mosley, which would net him an additional $30 million, according to TopRank promoter Bob Arum.

Liabilities? He has none. With that amount of money, why borrow?

And yet, billionaire Manny Pacquiao is not on the Forbes 40 Richest Filipinos list.

Why? Because his $26 million is, apparently, still not good enough. In 2010:

  • the No. 1 richest Filipino (Henry Sy) is worth $5 billion — that’s five billion DOLLARS!
  • the 10th richest Filipino (Danding Cojuangco) has a net worth of $760 million
  • the 40th richest (Philip Ang of NickelAsia) is worth $50 million

This is probably the reason why Manny Pacquiao has no intention of retiring yet. He wants to be in that list.

Actually, his $30 million income from the Mosley fight brings his net worth to more than $50 million — making him a part of the upcoming 2011 richest Filipinos list — but we don’t know if he’ll actually get that entire amount.

So to seal the deal, Pacquiao has to win his next fight with Juan Manuel Marquez on November 12, 2011.

    Manny Should use his money by investing them on Real Estate, construction, manufacturing that can create more jobs and opportunities rather than just giving them away as cash to all the poor people. Instead create

    Livelihood programs for them. Invest in Agriculture, poultry and livestock. This can even help the economy.And build couple of schools and health clinics too.

    wow! very inspiring persons. I hope they would still continue sharing their blessings to others most especially those who really in need right now…always remember that richest is not measured materially, but exactly what’s in your heart-if you already owned this, your wealthy enough.:)

    1. Damienlover29 says:

      How about stop treating Manny like a charity and just work hard and go to school and not ask him for money??? fair enough? one of the things manny could do is simply buy people condoms so that overpopulation can be stopped lack of food and overpopulation is a number one factor of poverty.
