Pinayaman na naman ni Manny ang Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS — Despite the fact that Manny Pacquiao hails from the Philippines and came to stardom toward the end of his career, to this city and Nevada he represents far more than a talented boxer who plies his trade twice annually under their famous neon lights.

Pacquiao is an economic driver for the local economy, his influence as powerful as his left hook. On fight weekends, that impact extends from an uptick in gambling to an increase in everything from hotel rates to the price of bottle service at local nightclubs.
