Manny Pacquiao Bankrupt? Pacman Lists LA Mansion For Sale

Manny Pacquiao is rumored to be in debt and bankrupt as he has listed his Los Angeles mansion for sale.

Boxing promoter and a close friend of the pound-for-pound king, Wakee Salud, was asked regarding the issue by a local news reporter, Erwin Lirazan. According to Salud, Pacquiao has lost his money because he has been very generous. He said that the boxer could not say “no” to his kin and to those who would ask for help.

Roger “Haplas” Fernandez, Pacquiao’s top aide, argued that the two-storey house is being sold since it is being used only when Pacman visits the US which he rarely does as he is residing in his hometown in the Philippines, serving as a public official.

Pacquiao also set the record straight as he denied in a recent interview with Dyan Castillejo of ABS-CBN News that he is losing money.

The said Mediterranean-inspired house, which was featured on “MTV Cribs” in 2010, has 5 bedrooms, 6 baths, a gourmet kitchen with a built-in coffee bar, an indoor pool, a spa, a fire …

Manny Pacquiao Tops 'Rated K's' List Of Richest Pinoy Celebrities Under 40

Manny Pacquiao is the richest Noypi celebrity who is still below 40 years old, according to the Korina Sanchez-hosted magazine show "Rated K."

The popular Sunday program named the Top 5 richest Filipino stars under 40 in its July 14, 2013 episode. The names of the celebs are as follows:

1. Manny Pacquiao
2. Piolo Pascual
3. Kim Chiu
4. Ryan Agoncillo
5. John Lloyd Cruz

Although the show cited the tax the said personalities paid in 2011, it must have considered some other factors as well since Pascual and Chiu paid more than the pound-for-pound king did and Kapatid actor Derek Ramsay paid the highest tax among celebs who are under 40 years of age in the said year.

Based on a datum from the Bureau of Internal Revenue, the local celebrities who paid the most tax in 2011 are Kris Aquino (49.8 Million), Vic Sotto (P14.7 Million), Charo Santos (10.5 Million), Derek Ramsay (P7.07 Million), Piolo Pascual (P6.98 Million), Kim Chiu (P6.71 Million), Manny Pacquiao (P6.1 Million), Micha…

Pacquiao Decision Can't Be Overturned, WBO Says

The controversial Pacquiao-Bradley split decision cannot be reversed per rules despite five judges concurring the fight was won by Pacquiao following a review, the WBO said.

"We can’t change the result but we did this review for two reasons," WBO president Francisco Valcarcel told "If they want to make a rematch, we will approve the rematch and if they don’t we will order one. Also, we wanted to show (the Nevada State Athletic Commission) that they could bring in other officials from outside of Nevada who can also do a fine job judging fights. It’s good to have different officials."

After reviewing the controversial Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao vs. Timothy Bradley, Jr. fight, a panel of five WBO judges unanimously scored it 117-111, 117-111, 118-110, 116-112 and 115-113 in favor of Pacquiao.

A rematch clause is included in Pacquiao's fight contract with Bradley, should the American pull off the upset. But Top Rank promoter Bob Arum sai…

Pacquiao Decision: WBO Panel Says Pacman Defeated Bradley

Despite the result of the WBO review, the fight’s original split decision will apparently stay as is.

"We can’t change the result but we did this review for two reasons," WBO president Francisco Valcarcel told "If they want to make a rematch, we will approve the rematch and if they don’t we will order one. Also, we wanted to show (the Nevada St…

Promoter Bob Arum is asking an investigation on the controversial result of Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley Jr.'s megafight over the weekend.

Pacquiao landed more punches throughout the 12-round WBO welterweight title match but Bradley was surprisingly declared the winner via split decision.

Pacquiao Investigation: 'Public Has The Right To Know What Happened,' Says Arum

The controversial Pacquiao vs Bradley bout should undergo an investigation to "restore fans' confidence in boxing," promoter Bob Arum said.

Pacquiao On Obama's Gay Marriage Stance: 'God Only Expects Man And Woman To Be Together'

Filipino boxing champion Manny "Pacman" Pacquaio voiced out his opposition on U.S. President Barrack Obama's stance on gay marriage.

In a recent interview with the National Conservative Examiner, Pacquiao insisted that people should always put God's word first.

"God's words first... obey God's law first before considering the laws of man," Pacquiao said. "God only expects man and woman to be together and to be legally married, only if they so are in love with each other."

Obama declared his support for gay marriage last week, which was praised by the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community and rights advocates.

While Pacman said he respects Obama, he told the Examiner that Obama should read the bible or "manual of life" to better society.

Previously perceived as a womanizer, a gambler and a heavy drinker,  Pacquiao announced in January that he had become a changed man after his religious vision.

Manny Pacquiao Tax Case: Pacman requests for more time to present documents

Boxing champ and Sarangani Congressman Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao is asking the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) to give him more time to present his tax records after the agency filed contempt charges against him for failing to submit the documents despite three notices and a subpoena.

In an interview with GMA-7, Pacquiao said a miscommunication or an honest error could have been committed by his staff and stressed he has no intention of violating any BIR regulation.

"I already sent a staff member to the BIR office. But if they (BIR officials) saw something wrong, I wish they would give us enough time to correct it," the lawmaker said.

According to BIR Commissioner Kim Henares, Pacquiao  is being sued for violation of Article 266 of the National Internal Revenue Code because the boxing champ continued to ignore the BIR's requests for his contracts.

He, however, clarified that Pacman is facing contempt charges, not tax evasion charges.

"We haven't re…

Pacquiao vs Marquez IV in May 2012?

Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao has defeated Juan Manuel "Dinamita" Marquez anew and once again it was a controversial decision.

After witnessing the crowd's disappointment on the outcome of the WBC Welterweight Championship fight between Pacquiao and Marquez over the weekend, boxing promoter Bob Arum said he is ready to set-up another Pacquiao-Marquez match.

“It was a great, great fight. I had Manny, but it was close, so why not bring them together again in May? It makes a lot of sense to do that,” Arum told Yahoo! Sports.

Prior to their sold-out fight over the weekend at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, the two boxers had fought twice in the ring. The first one ended in a draw while Pacquiao won the second fight by a single point.

Pacquiao vs Marquez III, meanwhile, was scored by the judges 114-114, 115-113, and 116-112 in favor of Pacman.
