Pacquiao got a $20 million purse for his April fight against Timothy Bradley—not exactly the $35 million Mayweather commands, but hardly chump change. Manny will fight again this year, on November 23, against an opponent still to be named (speculation is it will be Juan Manuel Marquez for a fifth time). That means a second $20 million purse (promoter Bob Arum has said Pacquiao will get $20 million at minimum, maybe up to $30 million). After getting knocked out by Marquez in 2012, the fighter’s endorsements all suffered: his people say he is not under contract with anyone apart from Nike and Smart Communications. Expect that to change if he beats his rival in November.
