Manny Pacquiao recovers from Timothy Bradley loss by buying a helicopter (Video)
Fresh off his controversial loss to Timothy Bradley, Manny Pacquiao has gotten himself his own helicopter.
A way to cheer himself up? Not exactly.
Pacquiao says the chopper is for traveling between his home province in the Philippines and the capital Manila, where of course he is a congressman. So, the purchase isn’t strictly for luxury. That’s what his yacht is for.
The “slightly used” Bell 206A Jet Ranger seats five people. Pacquiao has already given it a custom paint job and slapped his logo all over it. All in all, it was a $427,000 (roughly 18 million Philippine pesos) bill for the boxer.
But when you’re now the second highest-paid athlete in the world, why not?
