Pacman was listed as the eighth wealthiest athlete in the world for the last 10 years.

The reigning World Boxing Association super welterweight champion’s worth was estimated at $435 million.

According to Forbes, “Pacquiao’s 25 pay-per-view fights have generated 20 million buys and an estimated $1.3 billion in revenue.”

He recently turned 41 last December 17.
