Manny "Pac Man" Pacquiao vs
Erik "El Terrible" Morales 3

UPDATE: Watch Pacquiao finish off Morales!

The video above is the HBO teaser for the latest Manny Pacquiao-Erik Morales fight—dubbed "The Grand Finale"—on Sunday, 19 November 2006, starting at 10 am on ABS-CBN and Solar Sports (pdf). (Note: Due to time zone differences, the fight takes place in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Saturday, 18 November 2006, 10 pm.)

I've said it before about the Pacquiao-Morales and Pacquiao-Larios fights, and I'll say it again:
Filipinos in the Philippines—not to mention all over the world—will be watching. Traffic in the country will stop, the crime rate will go down to zero for a few hours, and even those who don't like boxing will know that the fight is going on.
If you're a Filipino or just interested in the fight, check out the following sites:

Watch a slideshow of Morales-Pacquiao 2, check out the bios of Pacquiao and Morales, and read Bert Sugar's pre-fight analysis, which in my biased opinion favors Pacquiao. If you have HBO, you can also check out the schedule of "Countdown to Pacquio-Morales III."
ToTsuite on YouTube
You can probably search YouTube using "pacquiao morales" as keywords, but why bother when you can subscribe to videos uploaded by ToTsuite, who seems to be uploading everything he can find related to the upcoming fight. Don't miss HBO's "Countdown to Pacquio-Morales III" (1 2 3).
This TV station will be showing a primer the day before the show, and pre- and post-fight programs on the "most awaited sports event of the year." Uniquely Filipino features: "live reports from General Santos City, to Metro Manila, to Las Vegas... Europe, Middle East and Australia... featuring Pinoys eagerly waiting for the final battle." And of course, it wouldn't really be Filipino without the "text raffle promo." =)
In case you're a die-hard Pacquiao fan willing to shell-out big bucks to watch live coverage, interviews, etc., on your computer; an autographed boxing glove; and a chance to win tickets to watch the fight in Las Vegas, then this site is for you.
Erik "El Terrible" Morales Fan Site
I think it's very revealing that this site has not been updated since Morales lost to Pacquiao last year. Have Morales's fans deserted him already?
This website devoted to Pacquiao has the latest news from different sources, plus information about all previous fights and a forum for his fans.
News and Blogs
If you really can't watch the fight on TV or online, news updates will be available on Google News, Yahoo! News, and Topix.net. Or you can check out what bloggers are saying on Technorati and Google Blog Search.
