A MULTI-MILLION earner from the third world, Manny Pacquiao is on the sixth spot in Forbes' list of the World's Highest Paid Athletes of the Year.
With a combined income of $40 million from June 2008 to June 2009, Pacman became the highest ranking newcomer in the list according to Forbes.
Like he is not yet earning enough, his earnings from boxing, commercial endorsements, and some stints on local TV are being invested in various business ventures, which, if managed properly will turn him into a business tycoon one day, if that does not sound quite too unrealistic.
Furthermore, capitalizing on his popularity, the boxer-cum-commercial endorser-cum-TV host-cum-actor-cum-businessman, Pacquiao is seen to again engage in politics--this time, is Sarangani Province, Jinky's (his wife) home province.
