Manny Pacquiao to donate £40m earnings from Floyd Mayweather fight to charity

May 4, 2015

MANNY PACQUIAO is set to donate half of his £80m fortune from fighting Floyd Mayweather Jr to charity.

Ring legend Sugar Ray Leonard warned Pacquiao about being too generous in the build-up to Saturday’s fight at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas.

He said: “I’m sure half of what Manny earns in this fight is going to go to charity. That is just Manny.

“We don’t like to talk about money too much as more charities line up.”

Pacquiao is keen to help his struggling compatriots as the Filipino congressman’s influence in the country rises.

The WBO welterweight champion will run for president in the Philippines once his fighting career comes to an end.
