It’s the same home the retired pro boxer and current senator showcased on MTV Cribs.
Recently retired boxer and Philippine presidential hopeful Sen. Manny Pacquiao listed his Los Angeles home on the market for $4.5 million. However, it’s not the first time he’s tried to sell the Mediterranean-style Hancock Park property.
According to Realtor, the five-bedroom and the six-bathroom abode was initially purchased by Pacquiao and his wife Jinkee in 2009. Four years later, the couple tried to sell the home for $2.7 million. Upon not closing any deals, they took back the listing but tried to find buyers once again in 2015—the same year the senator lost against Floyd Mayweather Jr.
The current selling price of the house has ballooned since its initial listing, and it could be due to the mansion-clad neighborhood’s median price range rising from $2.9 million to $3.2 million in the past year.
Originally built in 2008, the two-story house was featured on MTV Cribs. In his episode, the General Santos native showcased how he utilized the home’s multiple areas—including a trophy room with an ESPN Fighter of the Year Award and Certificate of Appreciation from Los Angeles.
The property also features indoor and outdoor fireplaces, with the latter being perched by the swimming pool.
In 2019, the General Santos native appeared on Forbes’ highest-paid athletes list with earnings of $26 million. Pacquiao’s the only eight-division boxing world champion in the sport’s history when he announced his retirement last September. A few weeks after the announcement, the 42-year-old filed for Philippine presidential candidacy on October 1.
