‘THE camp of Manny Pacquiao was not disappointed by the $400,000 pay per view revenue of the Pacman-Chris Algieri bout on November 23 at the Cotai Arena in Macau.
“We are not disappointed with those pay-per-view reports because the fight [Pacquiao-Algieri] was held outside USA. It’s okay with us,” Pacquiao’s long time business manager Eric Pineda told The Manila Times on Tuesday in a phone interview. “If the bout was held in US, I believe we would receive much more than that.”
The PPV revenue of Pacquiao’s fight with Algieri was very far compared to his recent bout against Timothy Bradley in April in Las Vegas, that earned $750,000 to $800,000. Pacquiao’s comeback bout with Mexican-American Brandon Rios in November 2013, also in Macau generated $475,000 PPV sales. Pacquiao won the bout via unanimous decision.
Pacquiao defeated Bradley and Algieri by unanimous decision and improved from No. 4 to No. 3 in the pound-for-pound rankings by the Ring Magazine.
“We are not disappointed also because we’re going to receive a guaranteed share in pay-per-view,” added Pineda, who did not divulged how much share Pacquiao will be getting.
