01.03.05 - It's a hot ticket, with over 10,000 tickets already sold for the explosive matchup between Erik 'El Terrible' Morales and Manny Pacquiao at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Saturday, March 19. "The fight is on fire," said Bob Arum of Top Rank. "These two fighters bring fire and the public recognizes it.

Both fighters have promised victory. Morales said this will be a "career-defining fight."

Freddie Roach, chief trainer of Pacquiao, said "we have one game plan - attack Morales at the opening bell."
