Manny Pacquiao is set to face Erik Morales on March 19 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The fight will be be shown on HBO PPV.

Though fight fans are surely the big winners, the loser in this scenario is clearly Juan Manuel Marquez. Marquez was set to face Manny Pacquiao on February 26, but the financial demands made by Marquez allegedly led the Pacquiao camp to look in the direction of Marquez's countryman, Morales.

The matchup poses a number of interesting points of debate for fight fans, and is sure to be hotly anticipated by all boxing fans.

It will be Pacquiao's first bout at the 130 lb. limit, as reported by Fightnews.com. How will Manny Pacquiao cope with another move up in weight? Will Morales be able to capitalize on his natural size advantage over Pacquiao?

Or will Morales struggle to cope with Manny Pacquiao's vaunted speed and southpaw attack. In his last outing, Morales struggled with Marco Barrera's explosive offensive bursts.

Clearly, it is one for fight fans to savor as these 2 great warriors get set to meet in March.
