Both Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao might be legends in the boxing ring, but their forays into the housing market another story.
The two finally went up against each other in the much anticipated fight at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on May 2, with Mayweather ultimately leaving with the champion title. But in the world of real estate, Manny Pacquiao is the one who is moving on up.
Just in case you don't know the back story; According to an article from the New York Times, “Going into this match, Mayweather was the World Boxing Council champion in the welterweight class. He was also the World Boxing Association champion. So he retains both of those belts.
Pacquiao, however, was the World Boxing Organization champion. Not anymore. That belt goes to Mayweather.
However, while Mayweather won in the ring, he is not having the same fortune with his condo high above Sunny Isles Beach, Florida. Pacquiao, however, is having much more success with his real estate ventures.
According to an article from Zillow (Z), Mayweather lowered the price on his Florida penthouse, asking only $1.999 million for his condo that sits on a barrier island north of Miami. The house was previously listed at $2.599 million last July.
The article explained that Mayweather wants to instead buy a house for his children since they are getting older, and he wants them to have space to run around.
Meanwhile, in another article in Zillow on Mayweather’s long-time competition, Pacquiao reports that he recently purchased a home in Beverly Hills, featuring a 7-bedroom, 8-bath, and a two-story entrance with a sweeping staircase and a master suite with his-and-her bathrooms.
