Pacquiao cracks Forbes list again and his new HP commercial

Image
The combination of Manny Pacquiao’s pugilistic genius and whirlwind aggression inside the ring made him boxing’s biggest draw. He’s an all-action fighter with an uncanny blend of affability and killer instinct.

Outside the boxing ring, the top pound-for-pound fighter has a remarkably untiring sociability without a hint of arrogance. This made him endearing and marketable as he does not only sell tickets and pay-per-views, he has also become an effective product endorser.

He purses around 25 million dollars with his usual two-fights-a-year schedule. Add the ever increasing endorsement deals and bonuses, he has become one of highest-paid athletes of this generation and a constant presence in Forbes’ richest athletes list.

His recent deal with HP is proof that he can carry a brand that is not even remotely related to the sport. Watch the HP Veer commercial below.
