Pacquiao vs Rios purses: Breakdown of handsome earnings

According to Kevin Iole of Yahoo! Sports, Manny Pacquiao's guaranteed purse for Saturday night's bout against Brandon

Rios is $18 Million USD.

And depending on the live gate and pay-per-view (PPV) buys, the Filipino superstar could leave Macau having earned

upwards of $30 Million for his services.

Brandon Rios will pocket $4 million, by far the largest sum of his professional career.

$30 million? How is this possible?
Although Floyd Mayweather has proved he's boxing undisputed cash cow king, Manny Pacquiao remains a major draw, despite

back-to-back his loses last year.

PacMan lost a hotly-disputed split decision to Tim Bradley last summer and was knocked cold by a seemingly hurt and

desperate Juan Manuel Marquez in a bout Manny was starting to dominate.

Neither defeat is your typical loss in boxing and many assert Bradley and Marquez got lucky, albeit in different ways.

Moreover, Manny Pacquiao remains one of the most popular athletes in the world. And while a loss or two can damage a

superstar's stock, it'll take a lot more than two seemingly wacky defeats to detail the Pac train.
