Filipino boxing champion Manny Pacquiao will face American Floyd Mayweather on Saturday in what will be the most lucrative fight in boxing history.

The fight is set to generate around $400 million through sponsorships, tickets sales and pay per view sales, and the two fighters are amongst the highest paid sportsmen in the world.

Pacquiao's status as a multi-millionaire is a huge contrast to the circumstances in which he grew up in the Philipinnes.
