Manny Pacquiao is currently in the fourth decade of his boxing career. The 41-year-old last defeated Keith Thurman on July 20, 2019 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Right now, the question on everybody's mind is, "What's next?"

In a recent television interview, Pacquiao revealed that there are a lot of possible opponents for his upcoming July ring return. "Either Mikey Garcia, Errol Spence, or [Terence] Crawford," he said. "There are boxers from Canada and Mexico that want to fight with me."

The July fight will definitely be monumental for his career, but he will also stand to add a hefty amount to his net worth. As it stands, the boxer-politician is already the wealthiest athlete in the Philippines. So, just how rich is Manny Pacquiao exactly?

January 22, 1995 25 years ago today, I started my professional boxing career. I never imagined life would bring me to where I am now. I never dreamed of all the accomplishments my future would hold. Boxing changed my life forever. It lifted my family and I out of poverty, brought me places I never dreamed I would be, and provided me the opportunities to help others along the way. However, I would not be where I am today if it were not for my family, who always stood beside me through the ups and downs; my coaches and team, who worked tirelessly to get us where we needed to be; my countrymen, who encouraged me and allowed me the privilege to represent our beloved country - the Philippines; and to all my fans around the world, who continually cheered me on and supported me. Manny Pac-Man Pacquiao has made it this far because of you, so I dedicate this day to all of you that have been there for me these past 25 years. Thank you all so much and may God bless!

In a 2017 Entrepreneur feature, it was reported that Pacquiao had over 103 properties in the form of buildings, houses, land, and more in the Philippines. Plus, he has real estate in Los Angeles where he stays and trains before his matches.

From looking at Pacquiao's real estate investments, it seems the boxer-politician might be getting richer soon. In early February, real estate agent Presello listed his North Forbes Park house for P1.5 billion. The listing describes the 2,000 square-meter five-bedroom, five-bathroom mega-mansion with a four-car garage as a "wonderful Zen-inspired mansion."
