Didn't Tyson have a net worth of $300 million at one point in time?
We know the story all too well of rich athletes blowing away their fortune. From what we've seen on the 24/7 specials, Pacquiao doesn't like to say no to people either.I recently read an article where Pacquiao said
Boxing is my main source of income. I can't rely on my salary as public official...I'm helping the family of my wife and my own family, as well. Many people also come to me to ask for help and I just couldn't ignore them.
That doesn't sound like someone who's as financially secure as we assume, especially when he supports all of the stragglers he has around.
I don't want to see Pacquiao tarnish his legacy by prolonging his career, but unfortunately that's how most boxers leave the sport.
