MANNY (PACMAN) PACQUIAO DOESN’T WANT TO FIGHT IN THE UNITED STATES ANYMORE
Professional boxer Manny Pacquiao will fight his future fights off U.S. soil. Any guesses why? If you guessed because he doesn’t want to surrender 39.6% of his earnings to the government, you’re right. Michael Koncz (Pacquiao Chief Advisor) told yahoo sports that the 39.6% tax rate makes fighting his upcoming fight in Las Vegas “ a no go.”
When Professional golfer Phil Mickelson pulled this stunt, there was outrage. I’m sure there will be outrage over this as well, but why?
It’s because Americans feel entitled. Entitled to everything under the sun, including the labor of Manny Pacquiao. How dare Manny Pacquiao not want to get his head beat in for our amusement, then fork over nearly half of his earnings to a bloated, inefficient government? That’s just not fair (end sarcasm).
Good for you Manny Pacquiao. Have fun spending all that loot. You definitely earn it.
