Manny Pacquiao will receive a guaranteed earnings of $22 million in his third bout versus Juan Manuel Marquez, on Saturday, November 12, 2011 in Las Vegas.(Sunday in Manila) However, Philippines veteran boxing analyst Ronnie Nathanielsz expects that Pacquiao‘s earnings will go up significantly due to Pay-Per-View (PPV) sales.

Nathanielsz said that Pacquiao will earn more from PPV and other related income that will result the Filipino boxing hero’s earnings to exceed his guaranteed purse of $22 million. The veteran analyst clarified in an interview with ANC’s Dateline Philippines that “if all the other rights including PPV is $30 million, Manny will get $30 million, not $22 million plus $30 million or a total of $52 million. Guaranteed means win or lose — if the PPV does badly and income is less than $22 million — he still gets $22 million.”

According to Nathanielsz, Pacquiao will keep about 50% of his gross earnings in the fight after deducting tax (about 30 to 35 percent) and other expenses.

Marquez has a guaranteed fight purse of $5 million in his third and maybe the final fight against Pacquiao.
