Pacquiao ‘ran away from home to live on the streets aged 12 because his father ate his dog’

Embedded image permalink

Ahead of Saturday’s ‘fight of the century’, when Manny Pacquiao faces Floyd Mayweather in Las Vegas, Pacquiao’s trainer Freddie Roach has made the startling revelation that his fighter ran away from home to live on the streets at the age of 12 – because he caught his father eating his dog.

Roach said that times were so hard for poverty-stricken Pacquiao family in the Philippines that his father cooked the dog for food. Pacquiao was so devastated by this he went to live on the streets, before turning professional just two years later aged 14.

“Manny ran away from home after his father ate his dog,” veteran trainer Roach revealed.

“He lived on the street, where he bought doughnuts at a doughnut store and then sold each one for a nickel more to survive.

“He slept in a cardboard box. He fought his way through all this, turned pro at 14, and look at the man he is today.

(CNN)Good news boxing fans — tickets for the showdown between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao are finally on sale.

The bad news, however, is that you may need to win the lottery or take out a hefty bank loan to afford a seat inside Las Vegas’ MGM Grand on May 2, unless you’re fabulously wealthy, of course.

However only around 1,000 were available to the general public, the rest of the estimated 16,500 tickets split between the fighters’ camps and the casino as well as promoters and sponsors.

Those at the lower end of the eye-watering scale — priced between $1,500 and $7,500 — were snapped up in a matter of minutes.

Not long after some were made available on resale websites at a mark up that could only be dreamed about even by the sharpest financial trader.

As of lunchtime Friday, the most expensive seat on sale through the StubHub website, was retailing for a mammoth $128,705.

Retailers make a killing ahead of Pacquiao-Mayweather megafight

MANILA: Sales of Manny Pacquiao boxing gear and effects have soared as much as 10 times ahead of his May 2 megafight with Floyd Mayweather, with Philippine retailers struggling to cope with demand from fans snapping up any paraphernalia they could find.

Online and front-end retailers are seeing record sales of Pacquiao T-shirts, boxing gloves, figurines, caps and jackets, with buyers stocking up on items they believe could at least double in value if he wins what is seen as the highest grossing bout in history.

“Many are buying because prices might rise further if Manny wins. So while the fight is still days away, they are already buying these items,” said 50-year-old Carolyn Yap-Tan, who has been selling Pacquiao items online for four years.

Yap-Tan said her sales via Ebay have jumped 10 times since February when the megafight, which took five years to arrange, was confirmed.

Prices of Pacquiao-autographed boxing gloves, the best-selling item, have also risen at least 50 percent, said Yap-Tan, with buyers coming mostly from the United States, and a few from Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom.

How Manny Pacquiao’s new mansion looks on the inside will leave you speechless

Source: AsiaOne

Filipino star boxer Manny Pacquiao has just bought rapper Sean Combs’ former Beverly Hills mansion for a cool US$12.5 million (S$17 million).

Combs, who is more famously known as P. Diddy, used to own the Los Angeles home but sold the 10,000-sq ft estate in 2001.

According to Philippine Entertainment Portal, Manny Pacquiao bought the mansion as a surprise for his family. Pacquiao told Startalk in an interview: “I’m pretty sure that my wife will love it.”

With its grand two-story entrance, wide cobblestone driveways, a swimming pool with a fountain and spa, and several fire pits and patios, the luxurious home should definitely be more than enough to please his wife.

The mansion also comes with seven bedrooms, eight baths and a US$200,000 home theatre, perfect for his large family of seven.

Mayweather and Pacquiao getting richer by the day

The first ticket has yet to be sold, but the richest fight in boxing history is getting richer by the day.

New estimates show Floyd Mayweather Jnr’s payoff for fighting Manny Pacquiao could easily be US$180 million, up substantially from earlier predictions of US$120 million. Pacquiao gets the short end of the purse, but even that is expected to be well over US$100 million by the time everything is tallied up.

Anyone who predicts the total pay-per-view is whistling in the dark
Bob Arum

The money is staggering, though not exactly unexpected. Five years of waiting seem to have only piqued the public’s demand for the one fight even casual fans of the sport want to see.

Promoters announced a deal with Sky Sports to televise the fight on pay-per-view in England and parts of Europe, part of another US$35 million expected to come in from foreign rights. Add in another US$10 million in sponsorships – Tecate beer will be the main sponsor – and the fight will gross more than US$100 million before a single home in North America buys the pay-per-view.

With promoters holding the upper hand for this fight, though, that split could end up 65-35 in favour of the promotion. And if three million homes buy the fight at US$100, that would mean about $200 million in revenue to Mayweather Promotions and Arum’s Top Rank from pay-per-view alone.

Add in the other money and the two camps will have more than US$300 million to divvy up. With Mayweather getting a 60-40 split, that would mean a purse of US$180 million or more to Mayweather and US$120 million or more to Pacquiao.

Both purses would dwarf the biggest ever in boxing, including the 2007 fight with Mayweather in which De La Hoya made a reported US$52 million. Mayweather’s biggest payday was against Alvarez, when he was guaranteed US$41.5 million and may have made another US$20 million off the pay-per-view sales.
