Big payday for Pacquiao!

Arum says Pacman will earn more $$$ than Barrera and Marquez combined

Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum has told the Manila Bulletin's Nick Giongco that when Manny Pacquiao faces undefeated Jorge Solis on April 14 in San Antonio, Texas, the Pacman will earn more than the combined total of what Juan Manuel Marquez and Marco Antonio Barrera were paid for their epic shootout on March 17. "Check with the Nevada State Athletic Commission and you'll see that one fighter was paid $1.5 million and the other got $1.25 million," said Arum. "Manny will earn much more than what these two fighters got combined. Manny will get close to $5 million against Solis."
