pacquiao would never fight in the philippines because he would make nowhere near the money he makes fighting in the united states...... in case you guys dont keep up with world news, close to half the country lives below the poverty line over there, who's going to afford the tickets???? who's going to buy a ppv over there??
point is, unless pacquiao is getting some huge money upfront ( im talking 20-30 mil) he aint fighting over there
It's true that the money would be negligible on the gate but he'd still make near the same amount for the HBO PPV and other worldwide broadcasting networks. Remember that the vast majority of the money comes from TV, not from the arena. Pacquiao probably gets a few hundred thousand from his Las Vegas gates at best after he receives his cut.
