MANILA, Philippines – For the first time, boxer-politician Manny Pacquiao entered Forbes’ yearly list of the 20 Highest-Paid Celebrities, ranking 16th with $67 million in earnings.

Despite Pacquiao’s controversial loss to Timothy Bradley in their June bout—the former's first defeat inside the ring in seven years—the Sarangani representative continues to enjoy a lucrative career. Forbes wrote: “Pacquiao has become a pay-per-view stud, with five fights each generating at least one million PPV buys during the past four years.”

“Pacman has expanded his endorsement reach by signing deals with Monster Energy and Hennessy. His longtime partners include Nike and Hewlett-Packard,” it added.

The People’s Champ is ahead of other global celebrities in the list, namely Dr. Phil McGraw with $64 million, business mogul Donald Trump ($63 million), “American Idol” host Ryan Seacrest ($59 million), and pop star Britney Spears and superstar golfer Tiger Woods (both with $58 million).

For another year, the world’s Queen of All Media, Oprah Winfrey, ruled the roster with $165 million. “Transformers” director Michael Bay came second with $160 million, followed by producer-filmmaker Steven Spielberg ($130 million), “Pirates of the Caribbean” producer Jerry Bruckheimer ($115 million), and record executive-businessman Dr. Dre ($110 million). Closing the top 10 are Tyler Perry ($105 million), Howard Stern ($95 million), James Patterson ($94 million), George Lucas and Simon Cowell (both with $90 million).

In the World’s 100 Highest-Paid Athletes list released also by Forbes last June, Pacquiao ranked second after one of, if not, his most popular boxing rival, Floyd Mayweather, Jr. The former also entered Forbes’ Celebrity 100 at the 33rd spot.
