MANNY PACQUIAO has always lived life on the edge.

It’s a big part of who he is and what he’s accomplished. The same daredevil mentality that drives him inside the ring permeates every facet of his life, including the management of the fortune he’s earned with his fists.

According to Forbes magazine, if you include the estimated $30m from commercial endorsements, Pacquiao has made in excess of $300m. That is a staggering amount of money, but exactly how much of it is left is something even Manny might not know.
