Manny Pacquiao's career earnings are expected to surpass $400 million when he faces Floyd Mayweather in the "The Fight of the Century" on May 2.

This weekend alone, Pacquiao is expected to make more than $100 million.

While Manny isn't as flashy as Mayweather, he has lot of money to spend and he does it in some odd and over-the-top ways befitting a wealthy boxer.

Pacquiao earned $41.8 million in 2014, making him world's 11th-highest-paid athlete.

He makes almost all his money in the ring, pulling in around $20 million per bout.

As recently as 2013, he was making $8 million per year in endorsements with companies such as Nike, Foot Locker, HP, and Hennessy.


As his career has slowed, many of his endorsements have expired and not been renewed. In 2014 he made slightly less than $1 million in endorsements.

Despite all that, he is going to make $2.3 million in trunk sponsorships alone in the Mayweather fight.

He spends some of that money on himself. He recently purchased a 10,000 square-foot mansion in Beverly Hills, which cost him $12.5 million and four tickets to his fight against Mayweather.

He has also dabbled in business, opening a gym in his native Philippines.

He used to own a semi pro basketball team in his home country.

He even spent $3 to $4 million on 900 tickets for his entourage to attend the Mayweather fight.



Manny's legendary entourage is so massive he flew two planes loaded with guests — 380 in all — to his recent fight in Macau.



He also has a taste for cars that are fast and expensive. His collection reportedly includes a Porsche Cayenne, a Mercedes SLK, and this Ferrari.

Many of Manny Pacquiao's biggest interests are charitable. He auctioned off a pair of shorts for $40,000 to support typhoon victims.


Promoter Bob Arum recently predicted that half of the more than $100 million Pacquiao makes fighting Mayweather would go to charity.

His efforts to help others go beyond just giving money. He took this photo on his way to "work" in an area of the Philippines where people are starving.

Pacquiao has plenty of other interests outside of boxing that make him the world's most interesting fighter. This includes singing. In 2006 he released an album called "Laban Nating Lahat Ito" in his native language, Tagalog.

He even recorded a cover of Dan Hill's "Sometimes When We Touch."

Manny is also an avid basketball player and serves as a player-coach for a team in the Philippines Basketball Association.



In addition to all that, he's a congressman in the Philippines, winning his most recent election unopposed.

Much of his attention is devoted to his family, which includes five children. His Instagram is filled with photos of his family.

He even has a dog named Pacman.

Pacquiao is now 36 years old, has already fought 64 times as a pro, and may not have many paydays left.

His contract with Top Rank and HBO will expire at the end of 2016. He will likely have three more fights after the $100 million "Fight of the Century."

While "Flavor" is very subjective, and each country that grows mangoes is very nationalistic, these are the mango varieties that are the most sought after around the world because of sweetnesss (Brix) and demand.

The Chaunsa has a Brix rating in the 22 degree level which is unheard of!
Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.

Mangoes date back 65 million years according to research ...

Experts at the Birbal Sahni Institute of Palaeobotany (BSIP) here have traced the origin of mango to the hills of Meghalaya, India from a 65 million year-old fossil of a mango leaf. 

The earlier fossil records of mango (Mangifera indica) from the Northeast and elsewhere were 25 to 30 million years old. The 'carbonized leaf fossil' from Damalgiri area of Meghalaya hills, believed to be a mango tree from the peninsular India, was found by Dr R. C. Mehrotra, senior scientist, BSIP and his colleagues. 

After careful analysis of the fossil of the mango leaf and leaves of modern plants, the BISP scientist found many of the fossil leaf characters to be similar to mangifera.

An extensive study of the anatomy and morphology of several modern-day species of the genus mangifera with the fossil samples had reinforced the concept that its centre of origin is Northeast India, from where it spread into neighbouring areas, says Dr. Mehrotra. 

The genus is believed to have disseminated into neighb…
