Pacquiao to sell Manila mansion after rich neighbours complain




Philippine boxing champion Manny Pacquiao waves to his fans during his victory parade in Manila on November …

Pacquiao told AFP that as a "man of the masses", he is not finicky with his visitors, even if they are wearing "just shorts and slippers".

The boxer's rags-to-riches story, from being a fish vendor in his hometown to winning world titles in an unprecedented eight weight divisions, has made him wildly popular in the Philippines.

He flew to Macao the family who adopted him when he first arrived in Manila when he was 16.
HE gives money to retired Filipino boxers.

I've heard his wife is the one who keeps check on all his spending and earnings.

Someone has to.  Remember he was almost broke when Freddie took over as trainer.  He convinced Manny to dump his shady management who were basically ripping him off.

Even if I was, I still wouldn't be acting like that at a boxing fight.
