Finally, the fight is on: Pacquiao vs Mayweather on March 13, 2010

With the superfight, in essence, all but a done deal except for some 'minor' issues to be ironed out by Bob Arum and Floyd Mayweather Jr., the all-important question is not "Who will win?" or "Will it be an exciting fight?"

Who wins will depend on how Mayweather decides to fight the Pacman. If Mayweather runs from the start and continues to the end, he has a good chance of winning. If he decides to engage in the beginning, before he does any running, Manny Pacquiao has a shot. Look at how Cotto struggled to stay alive once he had gotten a taste of Pacquiao's firepower.

Either way, it promises to be an interesting show, just from the possibility of having Pacquiao chase Mayweather and tag him with a couple of blows. It probably won't have a lot of fireworks, but I'm sure we'll see enough. Trust Freddie Roach, "Master" Roach, to have figured this one out.

At this point, the world just wants to see the guy with the big mouth go up against the guy with the big heart. And if Pacquiao wins, well that would be a fitting cap to a stellar career. If he loses, and we hope he won't, it would have been a great fight anyway.

The big unanswered question is this: what happens now to Pacquiao's run for the congressional seat in Saranggani?
