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.

But Manny is expected to make "well over $100 million" for the fight against Mayweather, the richest purse of his career.

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 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."

Mangaluru: Vagaries of nature is expected to take a toll on the production of King of Fruits - Mango - in Karnataka this year. A combination of failure of pre-monsoon showers at the flowering and growth stage and spike in temperature in mango growing belt of the state is expected to limit the total production of mango to an estimated 12 lakh tonnes in the current season as against 14 lakh tonnes in the last calendar year.



However, the good news for fruit lovers is that this could see price of mangoes across varieties decrease marginally by 2-3%. This is mainly on account of 'import' of the fruit from other mango-growing states in India, said M Kamalakshi Rajanna, chairperson, Karnataka State Mango Development and Marketing Corporation Ltd.




Karnataka is the third largest mango-growing state in India after Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra.
