16. Manny Pacquiao: $67 million
Despite losing his first fight in seven years last June in a highly controversial split decision to American Tim Bradley, boxer Manny Paquaio can console himself with reported earnings of $67 million over the last 12 months.
In the last five years, Paquaio has managed to generate at least one million pay-per-view sales on four separate occasions. Incredibly, all this has been achieved while the 10-time world champion has been sitting in the House of Representatives in the Philippines.
