After losing to Floyd Mayweather Jr. in what was billed as "The Fight of the Century" in Las Vegas, Manny "Pac-Man" Pacquiao is headed back into a different ring -- the real estate ring. Pacquiao recently relisted his Mediterranean-style villa in Los Angeles for $2.7 million.

The five-bedroom estate in L.A.'s Hancock Park area was originally listed in August 2013 with the same $2.7 million price tag. It was taken off the market late in 2014 and just popped back onto the market this week.

The home's stucco faade, clay tile roof, and balconies are typical of the Mediterranean-style homes that are popular in the area. But step inside and you'll see that the home's interiors are all modern.

The crisply decorated living room is anchored by a fireplace and features floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the pool.

The kitchen, open to the living room, is beautifully modern and functional. Light-gray Caesarstone quartz countertops play off dark brown cabinets. A kitchen island (with an impressive glass hood over the range) offers plenty of storage and cooking space. The room features stainless-steel Miele and Bosch appliances and a built-in coffee bar.

Upstairs, the master bedroom has a balcony overlooking the pool, but the master bathroom is the true knockout room in the house. With a soaking tub, walk-in shower, unique light fixture, and a clean, modern design, the master bathroom resembles a spa in a five-star hotel.

Outside, the backyard is minimally landscaped, leaving plenty of room for seating and a large pool.

The home is pristine, but you don't have to take our word for it. As we originally reported in 2013, the home was featured in the reality show " MTV Cribs," and Pacquiao gave a personal tour of the property.

Humble and religious outside the ring, the Filipino fighter is well-known for his charity work -- and generally just being a decent guy. He was also the first and only boxer to be an eight-division world champion and has won 10 world titles to date.

Pacquiao recently underwent surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff injured before the Mayweather fight in Las Vegas. While the surgery was a success, the pride of the Philippines could be out for up to a year to recover. Wherever he's icing his shoulder and planning his next fight, it likely won't be in Hancock Park.
