Eight-division boxing world champion Manny Pacquiao is set to make bank for his fight with Jeff Horn, like he's been doing for his past few fights.
While there won't be any PPV bonuses this time around, the 38-year old boxing legend is set to make a guaranteed 10 million US Dollars or over 500 million Philippine pesos, according to ESPN's Dan Rafael, for his 12-round unanimous decision loss to Horn.
That's still a huge amount of money, with or without Pay-Per-View bonuses.
There is one small hiccup however.
According to Pacquiao, he still hasn't gotten his money, and neither has his head coach Freddie Roach.

According to a tweet from ABS-CBN's Dyan Castillejo, Pacquiao hasn't recieved his purse from Bob Arum and Top Rank Promotions.
Arum and Top Rank are also responsible for paying the trainer's fee, which will be deducted from Pacquiao's purse.
The statement was made in response to allegations that Pacquiao hasn't paid his longtime trainer and head coach yet.
Pacquiao clarifies the situation, and as it turns out, the man himself hasn't gotten his purse either.
