Things are going from bad to worse for Manny Pacquiao.
Not long after "Pac Man" had his bank accounts frozen following allegations of tax evasion in his native Philippines, the former king of the "sweet science" got sour news from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), which also claims the boxer owes them a nice chunk of change.
TMZ Sports has obtained official documents which show the IRS claims Manny stiffed the government out of federal income taxes from 2006 to 2010 ... totaling $18,313,668.79 in debt.
Here's the yearly breakdown:
2006 -- $1,160,324.30
2007 -- $2,035,992.50
2008 -- $2,862,437.11
2009 -- $8,022,915.87
2010 -- $4,231,999.01
Interesting note -- Manny had 3 big fights in 2008, including a match against Oscar De La Hoya in which MP reportedly banked $15-$30 million in guaranteed cash.
Pacquiao pocketed an $18 million payday for his unanimous decision win over Brandon Rios last month at Venetian Macao in Macao, China (see highlights here). International law protects fighters from being taxed in both locals, but it sounds like someone, somewhere, is not getting paid.
The longtime pugilist continues to maintain his innocence.
