What Manny Pacquiao Can Do With $23 Million Dollars
After several huge boxing matches with the likes of Juan Manuel Marquez, Marco Antonio Barrera, Erik Morales and David Diaz, Manny Pacquiao has already earned himself quite a lot of money. I’m sure everyone has heard rumors of how he’s spent his money, including a stint to compete for a congressional seat in the Philippine House of Representatives.
We also know of his many endorsement bonuses from Nike, No Fear, San Miguel Beer, Alaxan and even Magic Sing!
Anyway, let’s just say Manny Pacquiao is very well-off (to put it lightly).
Now, Manny Pacuqiao is set to fight Oscar De La Hoya in what could possible earn him $23 Million Dollars. With a 40 peso exchange rate to the dollar (and that’s being crude), that would be something like – 920 Million Pesos. Ho hum, now what to do? At this point, you may space out for a bit and give yourself some time to imagine.

Manny Pacquiao – 23 million dollars/920 Million Pesos!
Eto lang iyan, Sir Pacman:
Manny Pacquiao, you should invest 20 Million Pesos to live it up in Las Vegas for a while, and work on the possibility of getting Daniel Negreanu, Phil Helmuth, Barry Greenstein, Phil Ivey and Howard Lederer to teach you some texas hold’em, and you could probably earn at least 20% investment on your 20 million pesos each month.
On the remaining 900 million pesos, Manny Pacquiao should put up a corporation that would handle a group of companies that would specialize in: (1) providing alternative energy solutions for the Philippines; (2) constructing and managing a world class 100,000 seater stadium and sports center that can host big sporting events and possibly be the kind of secure and developed Philippine venue that U2 would agree to play on; (3) building and managing a desalination plant that could transform the surrounding Pacific Ocean to drinkable, potable water for the 7,200 islands of the Philippines; (4) promoting boxing fights and not just for Philippine boxers, but the good fights; (5) managing assets on co-ownership of a professional sports team like maybe the Boston Celtics or something that could use some improvement like the New York Knicks; and (6) produce Hollywood blockbuster movies, preferably by Pixar.
It might sound like the bills might go over budget from 900 million pesos, but then that’s where the business sense of Manny Pacquiao should kick in along with the wheeling and dealing that is needed to transform 900 million pesos into something even bigger and greater. And while my list may seem a tad bit too far-fetched and exaggerated, there are some bright ideas there that I’m sure Manny Pacquiao can start with in order to provide a positive and worthwhile contribution to the development of the Philippines, and not just build his certain legacy, but also provide a sustainable thriving business that could multiply his money.
Oh, and Sir Pacman – if you ever need anyone to help you run such a cooperation, I would be honored to submit an application.
Meanwhile, our thoughts go with you in your next match against Oscar De La Hoya. They may not be favorable thoughts for you, but at least $23 Million dollars. Manalo, matalo – malayo na mararating niyan, diba?
