Manny Pacquiao Not Concerned With Tax Disputes

Before WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao accepted a November 22nd fight with Chris Algieri, he had a tax battle to overcome with the Filipino congressman in a dispute with his government, who claimed he owed them millions of dollars.

The fighter insisted he had already paid the required money on his bouts in the United States to the American authorities. It is a dispute that is likely to go longer than twelve rounds, but the boxer insists his ongoing tax disputes will in no way interfere with his Algieri preparations.

''I'm not bothered, you know, I'm not bothered [with] this problem because I never hide [anything], I didn't hide something from the government,'' Pacquiao said. ''I pay my taxes in the States, and they have to honor [that], the Philippines has to honour I'm paying taxes in America."

[QUOTE=The Big Dunn;14888132]The thing with floyd was he didn't take taxes out of checks he was given for fights-which is his employment. Manny very easily could've taken too little out or none at all. SOmetimes it takes awhile, that's why…
