Pacquiao thanks senate friends for tax break bill as training continues

LOS ANGELES – Big fights mean big money as Manny Pacquiao settles his tax issues with the BIR.

He welcomed a bill proposed by Senator Koko Pimentel that exempts Pacquiao from paying taxes from the estimated $300 million fight, which could pay him as much as $120 million.

“I’m still paying taxes here so it doesn’t matter,” he said, adding a thank you to his senate friends for their support and help on the bill.

The Pacman continued with his US-based training camp for his upcoming mega fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. Tuesday morning with a jog to Pan Pacific Park and and a short shadow boxing and ab workout. He also bumped into training partner Ruslan Provodnikov, who is preparing for an April 18 fight against Lucas Matthysse.

The PBA playing coach took a few shots on the basketball court before wrapping up his morning workout.

On Monday afternoon he finished up his first day of training camp with a two-hour strength and conditioning session at the Wild Card Gym. Pacquiao said the session included heavy bag, shadow boxing, speed bag, and then punching bag.

He then capped it off with dinner and a few autographs.

    Senate Committee on Games and Amusement Chairman is Koko Pimentel??? But Manny Pacquiao is a cockfighting enthusiast…is there a nexus between the two? And Pacquiao is all happy of the bill Pimentel is pushing for…
